In advance of his concert on Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Kenny Chesney visited the Chiefs at training camp on Friday. The superstar shared some images at training with the fans on the big screens, prompting an immediate eruption.
Kenny co-headlined Saturday’s show with Jason Aldean, where they drew an unprecedented crowd of 57,368, according to officials with the Kansas City Chiefs, breaking the stadium record of 56,132, set by Pink Floyd in June 1994.
Kenny and his band entertained for more than two hours, closing his set with a duet with Jason on “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” and a cover of John Mellencamp’s “Hurt So Good.” By that time, both were wearing Chiefs jerseys.
Other acts on the bill included Old Dominion, Cole Swindell, and Brantley Gilbert.
Luke Bryan will treat some lucky fans to an exclusive concert on August 7th, previewing the music on his upcoming album, Kill The Lights, which will be released that day. The show will stream live from Irving Plaza in New York City at 9 p.m. ET on the Live Nation Channel on Yahoo. Citi card members will be able to purchase tickets for the concert on August 5th at 10 a.m. ET.
Luke told People, “I am so excited to be getting this new music out to my fans and cannot wait to be on stage and enjoy the album release night with them.”
Luke takes his Kick The Dust Up tour to Burgettstown, PA this weekend for two sold-out shows at the First Niagara Pavilion tonight (Friday, July 31st) and Saturday (August 1st). He will be joined by Randy Houser and Dustin Lynch.
Luke’s LBTV recently shared some of the singer’s bloopers while trying to record promos:
We were talking this morning about how we need a good solid, “Kenny Chesney Morning.” On that note, since we’re in a Kenny mood, here’s his video for, “Don’t Happen Twice.” Also, keep an eye out for the parts that were filmed the Mid-State Fair!
Congrats to Lauren Batiste of San Luis Obispo! She’s the big winner of the, “Sing with Keith” contest! Lauren will take the stage with Keith Urban tomorrow night at the California Mid-State Fair to duet with him on, “We Were Us!”
Listen here as Tom and Becky chat with Lauren about her big win!

Brantley Gilbert certainly has an emotional connection to his latest single, “One Hell of an Amen,” but it has taken on a deeper meaning in recent weeks. The singer was on his honeymoon with his new bride, Amber, when he learned that his 82-year-old grandfather had died. The man had suffered with COPD and emphysema for 20 years.
Brantley told Country Countdown USA, “The song took on a whole new meaning for me. It totally fits him . . . he was a fighter.”
Brantley is playin stadium dates on Kenny Chesney‘s The Big Revival tour, with an upcoming show on Saturday, August 1st in Kansas City, MO.
Brantley also played the Chumash Grandstand arena at the Mid-State Fair last night! Did you see him?
