It turns out that Kenny Chesney’s show at the Flora-Bama last month wasn’t the only show he’s playing this year. He made a lot of University of Georgia students happy when he played a surprise, free show in Athens this past weekend.
The crowd of about 500 packed into the Georgia Theatre Saturday night (August 30) for an “unannounced” show that was taped as part of CMT’s new “Instant Jam” show, that will highlight live performances and surprise shows.
Kenny’s crew put posters up in downtown Athens on Friday announcing the show, and like his beach show, wristbands were gone in minutes.
The show will air September 27, just days after his new album, ‘The Big Revival’ is released. Kenny’s Flora-Bama show was taped for another CMT special that will air later in the year.
