Kenny Chesney Offers Jason Aldean Advice Before Stadium Gig

“Take it all in, because it’s gonna be a once-in-a-lifetime thing,” Kenny told Jason.

Kenny Chesney is no stranger to playing stadiums, but his craziest dream-come-true moment came back in 2003 when the Tennessee native played at Knoxville’s Neyland Stadium, home of the Tennessee Volunteers college football team.

So, when Georgia native Jason Aldean was about to have his dream-come-true gig—playing the Georgia Bulldogs’ stadium—Kenny called his friend.

And Kenny offered Jason some experience and advice.

“He’s like, ‘Man, it’s gonna be a lot of stuff going on. Lot of craziness. Media, everything,’” Jason said. “He’s like, ‘It’s gonna be hard to enjoy it just because it’s gonna be so crazy, but take it all in, because it’s gonna be a once-in-a-lifetime thing.’”

That once-in-a-lifetime gig turned into a DVD called Night Train to Georgia, which comes out next week (Oct. 15). It features guest appearances by Luke Bryan, Ludacris and Kelly Clarkson.
