Big Surprise Guest at Sunday’s Atlanta Show

On Sunday, Kenny Chesney played his second stadium show in as many nights as the Brothers of the Sun Tour hit Atlanta.

The crowd got a big surprise when Georgia native Zac Brown came out on stage for renditions of “Knee Deep” and “Dixieland Delight.”

From the show wrap on Kenny’s official site:

And then there was the big highlight: Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Zac Brown! “The thing I love most about live music is that it’s a shared moment. You never know who’s gonna show up,” Kenny said, as he introduced Brother Zac as “someone I really respect.” The two played an acoustic “Knee Deep,” then brought the band out to cover Alabama’s “Dixieland Delight.” And if anyone was prepared to doubt this crowd’s country credentials, all they had to do was take one look at what happened during the fiddle solo: the 46,000 people in this classy, urbane Georgia Dome audience kicked into one hell of a hootenanny.

Chesney moves the tour west next weekend with shows in Dallas and Kansas City. See the full schedule here.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution has a great review of the show here.

    Set list for Kenny pretty much the same in Atlanta except he didn’t play Don’t Blink – instead substituted Knee Deep and Dixieland Delight with Zac. Great show and fantastic energy.  Also, Jake was 4:30, Grace 5:30, Tim 6:45-8:20, Kenny and Kenny/Tim 8:50-11:20.

    The article said the tour is moving west with shows in Dallas and Kansas City.  That’s not west.  California, Oregon, and Washington are west.

      Dallas and KC are west compared to ATL and Tampa

        I know … I’m just whining because they’re not coming to the northwest.  If I had Kenny money I could travel to where they are … but I don’t.  :)
