Kenny Chesney Joins Ranks Of Elvis, Elton

Wed Jul 20, 2005 5:03 pm

From Wire reports:

NASHVILLE -- Kenny Chesney is on his "Somewhere In The Sun" tour, and he's racking up records matched by only two artists before him.

He's sold out three nights at Atlanta's Philips Arena.

In the history of Atlanta's major arenas, only Elvis Presley and Elton John have sold out three nights in a row. For the math-minded, that's close to 18,000 tickets per night.

Chesney said when they told him, it took him back a little bit. He said the first record he ever bought was Elvis' "Greatest Hits" and he feels he's in some pretty special company.

Chesney's current single is "Keg In The Closet."

Chesney’s had a busy summer. He also married Academy Award winner Renee Zellweger in May.

Jeff,
I'm glad to be back as well. I was in Myrtle Beach all weekend for golf and a casting call Saturday, where about 300 folks showed up trying to be extras in Surface. After that, I was on the lot in pre-production meetings until yesterday.

Surface is a show with a cool mixture of suspense, horror and sci-fi, written and directed by NC natives Jonas and Josh Pate. At present it is set to air Monday nights (starting in September) on NBC. While most of the cast is fairly unknown, Lake Bell should stand out:ImageImage

All of those look promicing. Is it just me or is NBC going with a very cenamatic approach with their shows? This could be one of those great TV seasons, always good when they try new things. Hopefully it could put a nail in reality TV.

I know people in Nashville who recall that turtle-headed putz (Chesney)
being the most annoying a---hole heckler at songwriter showcases.
He would be at a table (waiting his turn) and laugh or cough or boo or order drinks real loud -
as other performers were singing.
