Kenny Chesney Sings with Eric Church, Sings Happy Birthday to George Strait in Milwaukee

Sony Music/Blue ChairKenny Chesney's show at Milwaukee's Miller Stadium attracted a sellout crowd of more than 43,000 fans over the weekend. Opener Eric Church joined Kenny during his set to sing "When I Sing This Bar," a song from Kenny's new album, Life on a Rock. Kenny also led the crowd in singing "Happy Birthday" to George Strait, who turned 61 on Saturday. Kenny promised to email the video on to King George.

Kenny performed for a massive crowd at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas the weekend before the Milwaukee show. He said Sunday, "Milwaukee – like Dallas last weekend – had a very special magic to it. Those fans! That stadium! Funny how places that couldn’t be more different both have so much heart.”

Kenny continues the No Shoes Nation tour Thursday in Raleigh, NC.
