Chesney Rocks Philly This Weekend

After playing two shows on each of the past two weekends, Kenny Chesney took the Brothers of the Sun Tour to Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday night. has a review of the show:

Another year, another sold-out mid-June Kenny Chesney concert at Lincoln Financial Field — it’s pretty much been a Delaware Valley tradition since 2007. True, in 2010, the pop-country superstar from Tennessee eased off regular seasonal stadium touring, but he did send out his concert movie Summer in 3D to make the rounds, complete with footage from Chesney’s June 2009 date with Philly at the Linc.

Saturday found the 44-year-old singer back in the football stadium with familiar trappings — Chesney beginning his two-hour-plus show from midfield, launched over the crowd on a chair suspended by cables leading him to the stage from above while singing and waving, capping another multiple-act bill with some all-hands-on-deck, rock-song covering and autograph-signing — but there were differences …

The most important departure was sharing the bill this summer in a near-double-headliner format with fellow behatted big-timer Tim McGraw on their “Brothers of the Sun” tour. McGraw — taller, leaner, and surprising tanner than the famously fit and beach-oriented Chesney — preceded his tourmate’s nighttime spectacle with more than 20 songs spanning his career, including the new tunes “Mexicoma” and the already popular set-closing “Truck Yeah.”

By now we all know how strict Kenny is about his wellness and fitness. Tourmate and pal Tim McGraw has been having a little fun tempting Kenny this year:

“Tim knows I’ve been trying to lean my body down so I can fit in the jeans I wear onstage,” Kenny tells Lon Helton of CMT’s Country Countdown USA. “I think he’s figured out that on Sunday, I’ll eat whatever I want. So, to test my will power he’ll send me a dessert every day … He sent me a whole red velvet cake one day, and he knows I love red velvet cake. I think he’s trying to do anything he can so he’ll be skinnier than me.”

Kenny is featured in this month’s Men’s Health.

People Profiles Pancho the Pup

You’ve probably already seen Kenny Chesney’s dog Pancho in the “Come Over” video. People Pets talks to Kenny about the little guy:

“A friend gave it to me and said, ‘Here, Kenny, you have to learn to attach to something!’ God’s honest truth!” Chesney tells PEOPLE. “Now, I love the guy.”

The newest Chesney is Pancho, a goldendoodle that joined the country star – who is currently on the Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw – in January. “Next thing you know, next day at PetSmart, I’m buying stuff, buying things and I have no idea!” he says. “That’s just a dog! I can’t imagine having three kids [like McGraw has].”

A dog will do plenty for now. “That little guy, he’ll eat everything in sight – whether it’s edible or not – and he loves the water,” Chesney says. “I took him down to my boat, and he jumps right off.”

When he’s not out on the waves having fun, Pancho may become Chesney’s newest roadie. “The plan is to take him on tour,” he says. “We’ll see if he’s got what it takes.”

Superstar Kenny Chesney takes center stage in ESPN’s latest This is SportsCenter commercial debuting on Monday.

Other special guests at the “cool table” include Pistol Pete from Oklahoma State, Smokey from the University of Tennessee, Miles from the Denver Broncos, Hook ‘Em from the University of Texas and two Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders.

The commercial was created in collaboration with Wieden + Kennedy New York and filmed on ESPN’s Bristol, Conn. campus.

On his experience taping the spot in Bristol, Chesney said, “I got to see a lot of the anchors I’ve become friends with over the years, a lot of the people who come to our shows. I love visiting the ESPN campus, and I love the relationships I have there. We ran into Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan the day we filmed and we sat down at the same lunch table and had a good chat.”
