Kenny Chesney breaks Nissan Stadium concert attendance record

Kenny Chesney officially holds the record for the largest concert crowd at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.

He originally set the record in 2018, after breaking One Direction’s record in 2014, but that record was quickly broken by Taylor Swift and then again by Eric Church in 2019.

Garth Brooks played for over 70,000 in two nights, but it’s unclear what the one night total is.

So right now, with a total of 57,211 asses in the seats, Kenny Chesney Visit here and now claims first place.

He also released Kelsea Ballerini for their duet, “Half Of My Hometown”:

“I grew up in East Tennessee and she grew up in East Tennessee. We traveled some of the same roads together. We went to a lot of the same places to eat with our families.

We were listening to the same radio station, and a lot of people were telling us that we couldn’t do some things that we’ve dreamed of all our lives…”

Kelsea broke down in tears mid-song:

“Being here in Nashville where so many dreams have come true, seeing Kelsea about to make the same kind of mark, it made me realize how strong that bond is. It’s not just fun, hooks or guitar riffs, it’s a huge heart that we all share.

Having that is the biggest gift, the biggest reason to do this, and tonight really hit me in the soul.

The Visit here and now continues next week in Texas with shows at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion and AT&T Stadium.
