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.

    If you haven’t seen this band live go. The band is tight and Grace has an amazing voice.
