Chesney Leaves Knoxville for Caribbean

The morning after his Saturday (June 7) stadium show in Knoxville, Tenn., Kenny Chesney ate breakfast with his family, then caught a flight to the Caribbean. In a bar in the British Virgin Islands, Chesney and Kid Rock took over the stage and jammed for two hours. “There was a guy there, playing covers — and he had two guitars with him,” Chesney says. “I looked at Bob (Kid Rock) and said, ‘Want to?’ and he was like, ‘Yeah, man.’ … So there you go. There were probably 20 locals and maybe 20 or 25 tourists, and it was a whole different deal, obviously, but it just reminds you how much fun music is no matter where you do it.” Chesney plays Albuquerque, N.M., on Thursday night (June 12). 06/11/03
