Storm Stops Kenny's Show

Kenny Chesney's desire to perform was outdone by a huge storm that stopped his show in Dallas, May 2, 50 minutes into the set.

Kenny took the stage at Pizza Hut Park in Dallas despite rain and heavy winds and played a few songs. But with the amount of rain that had fallen, it was ruled unsafe for the band to continue. At that moment, Kenny broke from the set list and reached into his catalogue and offered the crowd a tune that he rarely performs, “Something Sexy About the Rain,” from his Be as You Are: Songs From an Old Blue Chair CD. “Looking at all those people soaked to the bone, having the time of their life through all that weather, all I saw was a lot of heart and a lot of passion for what we were doing,” Kenny said. “If that's not sexy, that being there through some really nasty weather, because they'd come to have a good time and nothing was going to stop them, what is? So you wanna do something really special that marks this moment you've just shared, and 'Something Sexy About the Rain' seemed the perfect song for the moment.”
