The Columbus Dispatch has a review of Saturday night’s Kenny Chesney concert at Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio: “Review: Superstar Kenny Chesney shines at mega-concert”

Instead of his usual flashy entrance, Chesney and his 12-man band simply spilled out onto the permanent stage.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of this tour was that Chesney played She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy, which in the past he’s done at the end of his shows, as the first song. Maybe he’s trading in the “farmer’s tan” of Tractor for more tropical-flavored tunes like Everybody Wants To Go to Heaven.

The pride of Luttrell, Tenn., Kenneth Arnold Chesney, 41, ably demonstrated why he is country music’s reigning “Entertainer of the Year,” reeling off 10 excellent rocking songs with his smooth vocals before slowing it down with smooch-worthy songs Down the Road and Me and You.

“You have to live life to the fullest and never take anything for granted,” Chesney said. And he didn’t – even though Chesney already had the crowd in the palm of his hand, he brought out former Buckeyes Kirk Herbstreit and Mike Vrabel for the sing-along Back Where I Come From. It was one of many highlights from a concert that scored on every level.
