Kenny did it again!

(I started this post on 9/21/09 and evidentally didn't post it - so, here you go! ;)

Saturday night, thanks to my wonderful sister-in-law, my friend Tobi and I were able to attend the Kenny Chesney concert at Lucas Oil Stadium. (Go Colts!) This was my 5th Kenny Chesney concert, and it was incredible! The Zac Brown Band started off the show at 4PM and was followed by Miranda Lambert, Montgomery Gentry, and Sugarland. Kenny took the stage around 9:30PM and had his first encore around 10:45PM. At first, I was a little disappointed that he hadn't performed longer. (Last year, he didn't do any encores, so I thought that the concert was done.) Then, he continued for 2 long encores, bringing out all the day's performers and jamming to some classic rock/oldies songs. The concert ended a little before 11:30PM, with Kenny's tearful performance of Better As A Memory, which he co-wrote with Holly Gleason. If the song is at all biographical (which most of his songs are), it is a pretty sad song. (You can read the lyrics here.) That was one reason. The other, in case you haven't heard, is that he is not touring next summer. He is taking a break to write - and, I assume, record. Kenny is a self-proclaimed workaholic and loves touring and meeting his fans. I believe that I can probably speak for all of his fans when I say "Kenny, enjoy your break and write your heart out. We can't wait for your next album. See you in 2011!" =)
