Kenny Chesney’s Recap Video from Intimate Key West Concert Will Make You Jealous You Weren’t There

by Samantha Whidden

On Wednesday (October 6th), country superstar Kenny Chesney took to his Twitter account to share a recap video of his intimate Key West concert. 

“Thank you to everybody who brought the #smallstageseries to life in Key West. @siriusxm @noshoesradio @pandoramusic,” Kenny Chesney captioned the 12-second video, which featured reactions from the concert-goers who were incredibly lucky to attend the show. 

As previously reported, Kenny Chesney performed at the “Kenny Chesney: Live From the Key West Theater” last week. It was notably the first time that Chesney has been on stage in more than two years. He wrote on Instagram, “Key West was special. It was good to feel the love again. I needed it. #smallstageseries,” Kenny Chesney declared in the post, which featured a few snapshots of the intimate event.”

Kenny Chesney also stated that he was actually able to sing some of the songs close to his heart. These singles are notably ones that “get lost” during large stadium events. “[They are] songs from one heart to the world, and you need to really listen and take in the words. So they’re songs I don’t get to do very often. And tonight, in this place with so much history for so many writers, I’m going to go to those places.”

Kenny Chesney: Live from the Key West Theater will be rebroadcast on SiriusXM’s No Shoes Radio through satellite and the SXM App on Friday (October 8th) at 9 pm ET; Saturday (October 9th) at noon ET and 6 pm ET; and Sunday (October 10th) at 3 pm ET.

Kenny Chesney Says ‘No’ to Doing a Tour During Fall – Here’s Why 

During a recent interview on The Paul Finebaum Show, Kenny Chesney revealed that he is refusing to do any touring during Fall 2021. Why? Because it’s football season. “We always end our tour right before football season,” Chesney declared in his interview.

He then shared the two reasons why he refuses to tour at this point in the year. “I want to watch the games and I don’t want to compete with SEC football,” Chesney answered. “There’s no way I’m going to do it.”

In regards to which teams he roots for, Chesney stated his support for the University of Tennessee was started “at a young age” when he and his family did not have an NFL to cheer for. “We didn’t have a pro allegiance to anyone. It was all Tennessee football and Tennessee sports. And that’s all we had. 

According to AI, Chesney previously postponed his 2021 tour due to various venue capacity restrictions due to the ongoing global pandemic. The tour was originally planned for 2020 and will be shifted to 2022. The first show will take place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on April 23, 2022.
