Last week a police officer in Philadelphia was shot seven times in the line of duty. The officer was planning to attend Kenny’s concert on Saturday night.

Officer Christopher Dorman’s story even got the attention of a country music star. Dorman, who was planning to attend a Kenny Chesney concert in Philadelphia Saturday night, said in a video from his hospital bed: “Hey Kenny, don’t forget me.”

Chesney gave Dorman a shout-out at the concert but mistakenly announced to the crowd that Dorman had died. The star later called Dorman to apologize and wish him the best.

Dorman was released from the hospital on Monday!

Kenny Chesney has his sights set on Philadelphia this weekend:

Kenny Chesney has been thinking specifically about his upcoming show in Philadelphia – taking place on Saturday – since he performed last summer in the City of Brotherly Love.

It’s not that last year’s Philadelphia show was phenomenal, but quite the opposite actually in his humble opinion, which is why he’s made a promise to Philadelphia, via an interview with Sounds Like Nashville, to bring it this weekend.”

“I am telling you right now, the Philadelphia show, I want to go ahead and tell the fans up there that are listening…I’ve been thinking about that all winter, so I have a bullseye on Philadelphia, and we are going to let that place have it.”

In the interview, Chesney explained he was feeling under the weather when he performed for fans in Philadelphia last summer. As of right now, with a day to go until his show, he’s feeling good (fingers crossed.)

Kenny Chesney performed at AT&T Stadium in Dallas on Saturday night and was joined by a special guest.

The band played “Diggin’ Up Bones” from Randy Travis’s 1986 album Storms of Life as Chesney welcomed him onstage for a moment in the spotlight.

“Randy Travis paved the way and brought back country music,” Chesney said. “Like George Jones, he is an original and the real deal. It was great bringing him out for all the fans to see the man who brought so many young people to country music back in the ‘80s.”

Dallas Cowboys Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, as well as players Jason Witten, Travis Frederick, Zack Martin and Dan Bailey, were among the 46,273 fans at the show.

Kenny also two-stepped with Miranda Lambert to George Strait’s “The Fireman.”

Kenny Chesney will play at “college football’s biggest tailgate party” this September in East Tennessee at Bristol Motor Speedway.

A concert of epic proportion is coming home to the Last Great Colosseum.

As part of the Pilot Flying J Battle at Bristol weekend, the ultimate tailgating vehicle, the all-new 2017 Honda Ridgeline truck will help kick-off festivities with the Honda Ridgeline Presents Bristol’s Tailgate Party starring Kenny Chesney. The East Tennessee native, hailed as “The King of the Road” by The Wall Street Journal and the only country artist on Billboard’s “Top 10 Touring Acts of the Past 25 Years”, headlines a three-act concert on Friday night, Sept. 9, 2016.

Rounding out the talent-packed music ticket is The Band Perry, as well as Nashville’s Old Dominion. The tailgate event serves as a blockbuster kickoff to a weekend that will host college football’s biggest game ever, a legendary showdown between the University of Tennessee and Virginia Tech on Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016.

“My days at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City are where I first learned to love what I do,” said Chesney. “I played a lot of music in the Bristol area during that time – and even made my first album there while still in college.

“I had a lot of dreams then, but never did I dream I would be playing at Bristol Motor Speedway. The idea of that was too big to dream. So to say I’m excited to be coming back to play in an area where this dream started is an understatement! Music and sports have defined my life, and it’s not every day an artist is allowed to combine the two for something as special as this.”

ticket pre-sale begins on Monday, June 6 with tickets for the general public going on sale on Wednesday, June 8. Tickets are available ranging from $39-$225.
