Well as you can see from the photo above, I was “in that number” Sunday night to hear Kenny Chesney, Brooks and Dunn, and a whole array of nationally known country singers in Tiger Stadium. More than 50,000 people cheered Chesney as the country music star ended the 16-act, two-day Bayou Country Superfest. I had a ringside seat for one heck of a show.
Chesney, like the acts that played before him, expressed his excitement about being part of the event.”I’ve been sitting back there in that bus waiting to play Tiger Stadium,” Chesney said shortly after he took stage. “And I can’t believe that I’m here.”Prior to Chesney’s show, Brooks & Dunn, the biggest-selling duo in country history, rocked Tiger Stadium like the Rolling Stones, drawing a rapturous reaction.
