Goodnight everyone, and have an iconic weekend!

It's Friday night. Time to unwind with our regular Friday night feature on This Just In.

The weekend has finally arrived.

The sun has set.

The evening sky has erupted. 

Let's smooth our way into Saturday and Sunday.

From the Green Bay Press Gazette:

"What could possibly make the man who, with the exception of the Dave Matthews Band, has sold more tickets — 8.8 million — than any other act since 1999 nervous?

Lambeau Field.

Kenny Chesney is country’s biggest concert attraction, not to mention a four-time winner of the Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year award, but he’s never played the iconic Green Bay Packers stadium. No act of his caliber has. Ever. In more than a half-century.

So when he unleashes his Goin’ Coastal Tour on a Lambeau crowd of 42,000-plus on Saturday for a performance that will be a significant milestone in the stadium’s history, there could be a few jitters under that low-slung straw hat."


“I’m really excited and I’m probably going to be very nervous,’’ Chesney said during an interview with the Green Bay Press-Gazette in November, shortly after the tour stop was announced. “I want to get there early so I can just walk around."


"Every stadium show that I do, at some point before the doors open, whether the night before or really early that morning, I go to the very top of the stadium and just kind of sit there and take in the environment and try to remember the job I’ve got to do later on that night."



“I can’t wait to sit up there and be really quiet and think about the history of that place, think about how many lives that stadium has touched, the generations of people that have come in and out of that stadium, how much it meant to everybody and all the great players that have played in there, the great coaches, the great games. I just kind of what to take all that in. And for me to be a part of that place and me to play my music in there is very special.’’

That's it.


Sleep well.

Have a great weekend.

Just don't be nervous.
