Stagecoach Mane Stage – Indo, CA
I believe last night was the 5th time I have been blessed to see Kenny Chesney. Most of the time he was the opening act for Tim Mcgraw, but the last 2 times he was headlining. His buddy Kid Rock was on right before him trying to get the crowd ready. Unfortunately not all of Kid’s songs translated with this crowd. You could see the expression in the faces of many up front that didn’t understand Kid Rock.
I will tell you by the time Kenny Hit the stage the 40,000 plus fans were ready and eager to get the party started. Not to far into the set Kenny started belting out his hits, which many of the acts didn’t do. The second song was “She Thinks My Tractors Sexy” and even though it is one of my favorites it was very apparent that Kenny was still warming up his vocal cords. I thought it was going to be an off night for this man but he really turned it around. Now that I think about it I never had a bad experience at his concerts. He’s always “On”, but I guess that’s why he was Entertainer of the Year for so many years.
The best part of the night is the fact we caught his entire set and still made it out of the hellish parking lot with no problems or waiting. I saw floods of people leave early to try and beat traffic but even leaving at the end of the set didn’t make for any problems. We even were able to use the good port-a-potties that were in a trailer and flushed with no waiting. It’s the little things in life that can really make or break a night and using clean bathrooms is one of them.
Songs of the night in no particular order:(just to name a few)
