It was obvious by the third song of Kenny's set Saturday night, the four-tiered crowd at Dallas/Fort Worths AT&T Stadium was ready for the biggest night of the summer.
Marking his fifth consecutive tour in The House That Jerry Jones Built, Kenny was affable, sweaty and unstoppable as he led the crowd through an almost two-hour set that included a spontaneous take on George Straits The Fireman with Miranda Lambert, Old Dominion joining Kenny for "Save It For A Rainy Day", and Jake Owen barefoot romping onstage for She Thinks My Tractors Sexy.
Some nights just have their own energy, and their own momentum, Kenny marveled. Theres something about playing AT&T Stadium that just brings out the best in everybody! The crowd is always so great; you wanna do things a little different, bring up your friends and share the moment with them.
The evenings emotional high-water mark might have been an audible one. With hard country icon Randy Travis sitting on the side of the stage, Chesney called for Diggin Up Bones and had the deep-voiced baritone come out onstage to thunderous applause as his band descended into the country icons breakthrough hit.
When the crowds with you, theres nothing you cant do, Kenny said of the Dallas stop of his 2016 Spread the Love Tour. Texas crowds bring it with their own special energy. They work hard, they love hard and when they come to a show, they come with everything theyve got. Tonight was one of those nights where everyone was feeling it, the band, the crew, the crowd, Miranda, Jake, everyone. Heres to a great night in a great town.
