Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert @ Ford Field, Detroit, MI | August 22, 2015 – Review

Detroit gave me my first taste of an American stadium concert. The only thing I could relate to that was seeing Bruce Springsteen at Wembley Stadium a couple of years ago, but even that iconic gig was dwarfed by the sheer size of Ford Field. With an incredibly exciting guest line-up consisting of Brantley Gilbert and Eric Church, this was a hot ticket to have, and the energy of the crowd definitely reflected that!

CMA Festival Country’s Night To Rock: Recap + Loads of Opinion

cma fest 2015

CMA Festival’s Country’s Night To Rock aired this week (Aug. 4th) on ABC… and it was pretty forgettable. Country super group Little Big Town hosted the event and did a good job at it, it’s just too bad the event wasn’t as good as they were.

57,368 Fans at Arrowhead Stadium Topples Two Decade Old Number

The traffic on I-70 was backed up for well over an hour going both directions. The parking lots were flooded as soon as they opened the gates. It should’ve been obvious before the tickets were tallied something special was going on; but for fans coming to Arrowhead Stadium for Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival, it seemed like it was the annual rite of summer for the No Shoes Nation.

Kenny Chesney ‘Save It For A Rainy Day’ – Single Review

kenny-chesney-save-it-for-a-rainy-day-single-cover-300x300

I am actually quite a big fan of Kenny Chesney, even though ‘The Big Revival’ was the first album I was a country music follower during the release of. His discography of 15 studio albums was quite a challenge to work through, but starting with ‘The Big Revival’ got me hooked, so I was able to work my way backwards. This was actually quite interesting, since I often hear that Kenny has changed quite a bit through the years, going from more of a ‘chilled-out beach vibe’ to a similar tone, converted for an arena sound.

This week’s chart represents the impact of CMA Fest and the CMT Music Awards, plus the debut of Keith Urban’s new single ‘John Cougar John Deere John 3:16’ (#24 on Hot Country Songs). Little Big Town’s ‘Girl Crush’ continues to hold #1 on Hot Country Songs and returns to #10 on Country Airplay despite only presenting an award on the show (although they did host the festivities at LP Field), while Sam Hunt’s ‘House Party’ leaps, Luke Bryan’s ‘Kick The Dust Up’ climbs, Kelsea Ballerini’s ‘Love Me Like You Mean It’ moves up to #2 on radio and a whole host of others get a boost. Kenny Chesney’s ‘American Kids’ reappears on the chart while Jake Owen’s ‘Real Life’ is on the up, Jason Aldean’s ‘Tonight Looks Good On You’ rises, as does Reba’s ‘Going Out Like That’, Eric Church’s ‘Like A Wrecking Ball’, Carrie Underwood’s ‘Little Toy Guns’, Chris Janson’s ‘Buy Me A Boat’, and Zac Brown Band’s ‘Homegrown’. Meanwhile Kenny Chesney’s ‘Wild Child’ is #1 at radio and NOW That’s What I Call Country: Volume 8’ debuts at #1 on Top Country Albums. Read on for more details!

Kenny Chesney’s “Wild Child” Tops The Country Charts

Third Straight No.1 from The Big Revival Is Grace Potter’s first No.1

Kenny Chesney knew he wanted to say some things that weren’t being said when he went in to make The Big Revival. One thing that was important to him was celebrating the potency of women’s spirits, hearts, and souls – beyond whatever physical attributes they might also have – and he wrote “Wild Child,” a dreamy ballad that once again features Grace Potter, to do just that.

Kenny Chesney’s Big Revival Hit Nashville Hard

3+ Hours, Taylor Swift, Joe Walsh, Grace Potter, Uncle Kracker & David Lee Murphy Among the Surprises

Kenny Chesney – clad in a dark sleeveless Grace Potter and the Nocturnals t-shirt – hit Nashville like a house a-fire. From the opening of the New Orleans funeral drum corps/street preacher noir film until the last ringing note of Joe Walsh’s hard-charging “All Night Long,” the East Tennessean showed how much he missed the fans since he walked offstage after two sold-out nights at Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium in 2013.
