Kenny Packs Soldier Field


When Kenny flew over the heads of the assembled Chicago fans at Soldier Field, the roar was so deafening, it almost drowned out Kenny's vocals on the surging Drink It Up. In spite of unseasonable temperatures that saw plenty of polar fleece among the sundresses, the crowd was warmed up and only got hotter as the show went on.

It was amazing to me, cold as it was, how loud and how hard Chicago brought it, Kenny said. To play somewhere as historic as Soldier Field is truly an honor and I think about it every time were there but to have that audience whore so wild and willing to share the music, that makes it one of those shows every single tour.

Making her one appearance on The Big Revival 2015, Miranda Lambert thrilled the crowd with her high velocity hit-packed set, and her two duets with Kenny - "You and Tequila" and George Straight's "Carried Away."

Referencing how appreciative he was to the fans coming out when the Blackhawks were in the Stanley Cup Play-offs, the audience was marked by No Shoes Nation flags, young women on their boyfriends shoulders and a lot of signs for Wild Child, which Kenny performed a stark rendition of on his weathered acoustic guitar before his band kicked in.

Maybe it was the year off, but every night weve gone out, the band and I can really feel the crowd: their energy, their passion, the way they live these songs as much as love them. It knocks the breath out of you a little, hearing the way they sing something like Anything But Mine or I Go Back to you... And I hope the No Shoes Nation knows that feeds us and pushes us to really take this music ever further.
