BOSTON (CBS) – Vermont’s Grace Potter has had a busy summer, touring behind an album with her band Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
The band was on Nantucket Tuesday night to play The Chicken Box, a place Grace Potter already knows very well.
She says, “As a kid I went there in the wintertime, so I’m very familiar with the island, I love it there.”

This summer she recorded a top ten hit with Kenny Chesney.
She says at first, she had doubts about the pairing, she being a rocker and Chesney a country artist.
“I said I’ll listen to this song but I don’t know, it could be really weird,” she says. “And then I heard the song, and You and Tequila is so perfect.”
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals are scheduled to perform at MIXFest Saturday September 17 at the Hatch Shell in Boston.
