Big & Rich moves ahead in the second ballot for “The 52nd Annual CMA Awards”
Country Music on Tour
SATURDAY night (8/11) was another evening of record-breaking attendance for BLUE CHAIR/WARNER BROS./WEA artist KENNY CHESNEY and his “2018 TRIP AROUND THE SUN TOUR.” This time, CHESNEY was closer to home, as 55,182 fans packed NASHVILLE’s NISSAN STADIUM for more than two hours of familiar and new hits. Between ACM and CMA, honors, CHESNEY is an eight-time Entertainer Of The Year trophy winner, and he showed why, taking full command of a packed stadium crowd from the start, with an extended, blazing rendition of “Beer In MEXICO.” Drenched in sweat, but seemingly never winded, CHESNEY covered every possible square inch of a super-sized and extended stage on a hot Summer night. CHESNEY was joined mid-set by REVIVER RECORDS’ DAVID LEE MURPHY, who teamed for their recent #1 single, “Everything’s Gonna be Alright.” MURPHY also played his classics, “Dust On The Bottle” and “Party Crowd,” the latter of which was entirely on point for the evening.
WHEELHOUSE RECORDS’ GRANGER SMITH and his crew woke to unpleasant news on SATURDAY morning (8/11) as SMITH’s tour manager alerted him that his equipment truck had been involved in an accident that left it overturned across the highway. None of SMITH’s crew was injured in the accident, but the semi was totaled and some equipment cases were damaged.
SMITH shared the story, as well as footage from the accident site, via FACEBOOK yesterday (8/12).
