Famous Tennessean Eltonites
Kenny Chesney (born March 26, 1968) is an American country music artist. Since 1993, Kenny Chesney has recorded thirteen albums, eleven of which have been certified gold or higher by the RIAA. Chesney and part of his crew took time on their night off to attend Elton John's Red Piano Show at Caesar's Palace on 5th June 2008. Chesney describes the show as "Unbelievable." He says Elton introduced him in the audience and dedicated "Tiny Dancer" to them. It's from one of Kenny's all-time favorite movies, "Almost Famous." After the show the group went backstage to say hello. Kenny says Elton knew everything that was going on. The singer says, quote, "Not only did he tell me how much he liked the Willie Nelson record ["Moment of Forever" which Chesney produced with Buddy Cannon], but he asked about my Mother... That made my Mother's entire week!"
