Kenny Chesney Had a Private Meeting
Kenny Chesney Had a Private Meeting

KENNY CHESNEY stepped-up big time for some families who lost children in the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy.  It started when Kenny’s friend ANDERSON COOPER told him about one girl in particular who was a huge fan.–According to Connecticut’s WWYZ, before the girl’s parents lowered her casket into the ground, they took a Sharpie and wrote on it, “Kenny Chesney, No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems.”-Anderson asked Kenny if he’d give her parents a call . . . but he went beyond that.  Kenny invited them and several other Newtown families to his Uncasville, Connecticut concert and took the time meet with them and hear their stories.–Kenny also left with a keepsake that I doubt he’ll ever forget:  It’s a wristband that reads “Sandy Hook Strong.”
