On Saturday night, Kenny Chesney performed an acoustic set in front of 20,000 fans at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, MA as part of Farm Aid. The Providence Journal has the story:

Nelson showed up several times in the course of the afternoon and evening, whether it be accepting theatrically oversized checks on behalf of the organization or sitting in on songs he wrote (“Last Thing I Needed First Thing In the Morning” and “10 With a 2” during Kenny Chesney’s acoustic set; “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” and a thunderous rhumba version of “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” with Nation Beat, the latter seemingly catching Nelson off-guard).


Kenny Chesney did an acoustic set that leaned heavily on his island-vacation persona, including a version of “Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven” that, on his forthcoming record, he recorded with The Wailers.
