Luke Bryan’s Pittsburgh concert gets trashy but not as trashy as Kenny Chesney’s

Well Luke Bryan's Saturday night foray into big boy shows was a huge success, but it was also really, really trashy. 

Luke played his very first stadium show as a headliner Saturday night at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and by the looks of the tons of trash left behind by concert-goers it was one helluva a party.

You can keep your Chesneys, Lukes, and Florida Georgia Lines … I’ll take Kenny Rogers any day

Last weekend, I had the honor of watching my very first Kenny Rogers concert when he came to Boise, Idaho. 

And it's a concert I don't think I will ever forget. 

I remember being a kid in the 80s and my mom love, love, loving her some Kenny Rogers, so I was pretty happy when I was able to score two tickets and bring her along for the fun ride. I have four singers/groups who stand out strongly from my really young days: Bob Seger, which I remember because my mom went to his concert while I was in the hospital having my tonsils removed; Rod Stewart because I was in love with his highly-inappropriate-for-a-youngster Do Ya Think I'm Sexy; and The Gatlin Brothers because All The Gold In California was my favorite song and I sang it constantly. But then there was Kenny Rogers who I had a special place in my heart for because he was my mom's favorite singer, which definitely rubbed off on me, and I grew up thinking that he and I were related. See, my maiden name was Rogers and so in my young mind Kenny Rogers was some sort of a long lost uncle of mine.

Kenny Chesney's been out of the loop for a while now after taking the last year off from his normally hectic life on the road, but he's back with a new single and promises of more to come. 

Kenny has announced his next single is American Kids, a "multi-tempo celebration of the spirit of young America that packs not one, but two hooks and an innovative lyrical scan," whatever all that means. All I know is that the song has a toe-tapping beat that sort of reminds me of Sugarland's Stuck Like Glue at the beginning.

Kenny Chesney’s in a suing state of mind

Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney seems like a pretty chill, laid back kind of guy, but apparently that doesn't mean he won't still sue you if the need arises.
