Kenny Chesney made a swing through the Midwest this weekend and there was a special moment in Cleveland:

For Chesney, one of the standout shows of the weekend was at the Blossom Music Center and he said, “The highlight for me this weekend was doing ‘Anything But Mine’ in Cleveland. That was just a magical, intense, moment of connection between everyone on stage and everyone in the audience. That moment reminded me of how powerful music really is and how much people live with these songs.”
