kenny chesney's crew cleans huge parking mess saturday & Darius Rucker plays the Ryman tonight

Kenny Chesney played Heinz Field in Pittsburg Saturday night. In 2013 there were 70 plus arrests there when he played but Saturday there were only 22 thanks to a lot of police, tight rules and the new $180,000 Skywatch tower. It’s 30 feet high so police can monitor large crowds. The camera pans 360 degrees and there's a thermal imaging for night. Crews, however, were left to clean up the huge parking lot mess Kenny’s tailgaters left.  

Darius Rucker plays the Ryman tonight to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Over the years his benefit’s raised more than $1 million dollars for the kids. The other day Darius took a picture holding a fans three little dogs in his arms. Darius said it was odd because the fan wasn’t even in the photo.  

Luke Combs admits he’s a bit overwhelmed by his rapid rise to stardom and says, “I don’t think I expected it to be this fast. It’s been wild and a whirlwind for sure.” As for his fashion sense, Luke says he still mostly shops at Goodwill or thrift stores. He looks for jeans, boots and t-shirts that are comfortable and don’t have a lot of bells and whistles.'

Finally - Michael Ray performs on the Ellen show today.
