Kenny Chesney Kicks Off "Battle at Bristol": Brings Peyton Manning On Stage

Returning Home, Chesney Rocks at Bristol Motor Speedway. Super Bowl Winner + UT Vol Peyton Manning Surprises the Crowd

BRISTOL, Tenn. (Friday, Sept. 9, 2016)– When Kenny Chesney took the stage on the eve of the University of Tennessee/Virginia Tech football game, he was in many ways returning to the roots of his raising. As he said midway through the high-energy set, he came into Bristol Motor Speedway with one goal in mind: “to celebrate music and to celebrate football.”

From the first moment of his set until bringing longtime friend and former University of T ennessee star quarterback Peyton Manning out during the celebration of high school football, “The Boys of Fall,” it was all hits and the kind of connection that prompted The Dallas Morning News to write the 8-time Entertainer of the Year is “two parts Mick Jagger, one part Bruce Springsteen and one part Billy Graham.”

“The people from that part of the country are all heart – and all soul,” Chesney said after the show. “When they show up, they bring everything they’ve got. I was raised that way, and I understand how much they care about football – and music.”
