When Kenny Chesney takes the stage Saturday night at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, it’ll be a career first.
“You know what, we've never played, I don't believe… a stadium venue in St. Louis,” he explains. “We've always played the amphitheater or we've played the arena several times, just kinda flip-flopped back and forth. This is the first time, I believe… So we're looking really forward to it. Man, we really are,” he adds.
For the superstar from East Tennessee, it’ll be a sentimental moment.
“It's so ironic,” he reflects. “I mean, years ago when I was a kid, I went to a St. Louis Cardinals game with my dad and my grandmother. And I think about that and how life moves us forward, and now here I am with a band, playing my music, in that place. You know, it's really special. And, you know, to think about that is really cool.”
It’s already been quite a week for Kenny: His latest single, “Get Along” is number one, and Pollstar ranked his Trip Around the Sun Tour as the fifth highest-grossing North American trek so far this year.
Next Friday, Kenney's Songs for the Saints album arrives in stores and online.
