Kenny Chesney Performs On NBC's "Today" - June 17, 2011

[photogallerylink id=57326 align=right] [lastfm link_type=””]Kenny Chesney[/lastfm] did what others said couldn’t be done, or at least they thought it couldn’t be done.   Chesney pulled off the biggest ticketed country concert in New York/New Jersey, since grandma Moses left town.  (figure of speech)

And he did it with the help of  [lastfm link_type=””]Zac Brown Band[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=””]Billy Currington[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=””]Uncle Kracker[/lastfm], the  Goin’ Coastal tour hit New Meadowlands Stadium. The concert  attracted a record 55,239 attendees, beating [lastfm link_type=””]Willie Nelson[/lastfm]’s  record of about 52,000. A solo-acoustic performance of “You And Tequila” as well as a ZBB jam including [lastfm link_type=””]Steve Miller Band[/lastfm]’s “Space Cowboy” and [lastfm link_type=””]Bob Marley[/lastfm]’s “Three Little Birds” were among the highlights.
