Chesney, McGraw Show at MetLife Stadium Sets All-Time Record for NYC/NJ Country Event

Last night's sold-out 'Brothers of the Sun' show, with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw, at NJ's MetLife Stadium set the record as the largest ticketed country event in NYC/NJ history, with 56,285 tickets sold. The concert broke the record Chesney set last year with his sold-out 'Goin' Coastal' date on August 13, 2011.
