Kenny Chesney Look-Alike Ejected From Nashville Concert



A Tennessee man was escorted out of the Brothers of the Sun tour stop in Nashville Saturday (June 23) night for looking too much like one of the headliners.

"Just got kicked out of [Kenny Chesney] concert because drunk people thought I was actually him. No refund ... so mad," school teacher Nathan Blakenship tweeted after being ejected from LP Field.

Blakenship, who was dressed in a blue, sleeveless shirt and a straw cowboy hat, had been at the concert for four hours when the incident occurred, he told local TV station WKRN. (Watch the news clip below.)

The concert-goer (pictured above) was approached by LP Field security and told that he was "purposefully trying to impersonate a celebrity." Then several staff members accompanied him out of the stadium.

"I think the way they handled it made it seem worse, like they were really escorting Kenny Chesney through the crowd," Blakenship said.

The country fan, who -- unlike Kenny -- has a Superman tattoo on his upper left arm, says he tried to reason with the officials. "Is it because I wear the hat?" he asked. "I see a million of these hats here. I've worn baseball caps before and people still want to have pictures made [with me], but it's never caused a problem. I can't believe they think I'm actually him. Why would Mr. Chesney be in the crowd when Tim McGraw is singing?"

While Nathan spent $200 on his ticket, he's mostly upset about a comment made by one of the security members.

"I would like to know what it meant when the security said, 'This is coming straight from the top,'" he says. In order to get an answer, WKRN contacted LP Field officials, who explained that they'd been "tipped off" about Blakenship before the show.

  5. Really?? He gets kicked out for trying to impersonate a celebrity...that's not against the law people! Impersonating a cop, now that would be an issue...besides that, who the hell cares if he looks like him, its not like he was going to get up on stage & take his place.

  6. That's just wrong! The Guy resembles Kenny, yes. But looking exactly like him, no. This world is a disturbance. This Guy should be refunded his money, them "security" guards should be fired, and the people who have this "tip" should be slapped! Wow, people amaze me these days!

  7. Totally ignorant. He should get an apology, his money refunded and he should have never been even under consideration for getting kicked out of the show. Looking like someone does not make you a criminal.

  8. Pretty much all has been said. He should not have been escorted out, he deserves an apology and his money refunded. Also agree to Kenny inviting him to another show for free. What is this world comming to anyway.

  12. That is just insane! I sure hope Mr Chesney didn't have anything to do with this! We have tickets to the show in New Orleans in August. I would hate to think we are supporting a callous artist.
