Kenny Chesney Does Another Surprise Concert

Sep 02, 2014 -- 9:20am

Kenny Chesney and his band set up shop Friday night (Aug. 29) in Athens, Georgia, to play a pop-up concert in front of 500 fans at the Georgia Theatre. The event was taped for the first installment of CMT's new Instant Jam series and will premiere Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

On Friday morning, a handful of posters were unveiled and flyers distributed in the downtown area of Athens. With distribution at the University of Georgia's Phi Mu sorority house, the 500 wristbands were claimed in less than eight minutes.

During a show that lasted more than two hours, Chesney performed 23 songs, including some he hadn't played in several years. In addition to his past hits, he also delivered "American Kids" and another song from his new album, The Big Revival, set for release on Sept. 23.

The informal concert also featured some cover tunes, including Hank Williams' "Kaw-Liga" and George Strait's "Carried Away." During the latter song, Chesney used FaceTime to connect with Strait from the stage while the entire audience sang along.

Each episode of CMT's Instant Jam series features live performances and captures all the excitement and energy as artists reveal to fans how to score tickets to an exclusive show in their area while giving a behind-the-scenes look at the hours leading up to their concert.

Rare Blue Lobster Caught in Maine!

Aug 26, 2014 -- 9:14am

A Maine lobsterman says he and his 14-year-old daughter caught a one-in-two-million crustacean: a blue lobster.

 Jay LaPlante of the Miss Meghan Lobster Catch company caught the curious creature in Scarborough around 10:45 a.m. Saturday. LaPlante and daughter Meghan were hauling traps when she discovered the bright blue critter.

The story has a happy ending for the lobster. Meghan says she is naming it Skyler and donating it to the Maine State Aquarium, far from any dinner rolls or pats of butter. The aquarium says it has three other blue lobsters and an orange one.

LaPlante says it's the first time he has caught a blue lobster.

What's Tim McGraw's Cheat Meal?

Aug 21, 2014 -- 9:10am

 

I feel so much better now knowing that Tim McGraw loosens up during football season and indulges like the rest of us!

It’s no secret that Tim McGraw is a bit of a health nut and a workout machine, but he admits that when football season rolls around he loosens the reins a lot on his diet. “I’m not very healthy when it comes to football game snacks,” says Tim. “I like cheese dip and Doritos and tacos and chili, and all that sorta stuff. Some of our favorite things that we have during football season are Frito pies. Most people, I guess, especially if you’re a southerner, are familiar with Frito pies where we just have Fritos, cheese and chili. We eat a lotta that on weekends.”

All that extra junk food doesn’t come without a price for Tim. He says eating that, “just calls for extra workouts during the week.” And now that he’s not on tour and working up a sweat on stage he’ll have to work extra hard to make sure those football snacks don’t go to his waistline.
