Kenny Chesney ended the party of all parties in tears Saturday night in Indianapolis.

No one can accuse the guy of not being sentimental. The night began with the roof opened at Lucas Oil Stadium, and Kenny performed his final few songs in a blue Colts hat featuring the well-known horseshoe. During the ballad ‘Better as a Memory,’ Kenny choked up and barely got through the lyrics, often letting the band carry him while tears fell from his eyes and rolled down his cheeks. Obviously, the final show of his tour combined with the news that he won’t be back next year left him an emotional mess.

A couple of things you might have missed:

Troy Gentry of Montgomery Gentry’s guyliner

Miranda Lambert grabbing a black bra that a fan threw on stage for Kenny and putting it over her t-shirt

Kenny giving Jennifer Nettles several hugs and kisses and holding her hand as they walked the stage

Some disappointed fans who didn’t hear Sugarland perform their hit ‘Stay’

Me taking a photo of the entire stadium from the stage during my Sugarland introduction, only to have it not turn out

Me making a pitstop in the ladies’ room when it was over, and locking myself in the stall

A WFMS listener buying a beer for Greg, who couldn’t have been happier

The woman behind me asking Greg, whose arm was around my chair, to make sure his fingers didn’t drop in her drink

And Greg telling that woman, ‘Why? My fingers are clean. I’ve only picked my nose.’

Fun times.
