WATCH: Kenny Chesney Surprises With Two Song Performance Alongside Uncle Kracker

Kenny Chesney surprised fans at his recent Detroit concert (Aug. 20) with a two-song performance alongside Uncle Kracker.

The pair performed two of Uncle Kracker’s songs, “Drift Away” and “Follow Me” as well as their 2004 No. 1 hit, “When The Sun Goes Down.”

“It’s been eight years since [Uncle Kracker and I] sang together,” Chesney admitted, according to a press release from Essential Broadcast Media. Despite the long hiatus since their last performance, the crowd “went crazy” over Chesney and Uncle Kracker’s on-stage collaborations, according to radio station 100.7 The Coyote, Country Music Nation reported.

“It was like we never left it. And once we got him out there, I don’t think anyone, especially the band, wanted him to leave. So, we just kept going, and had a big time with ‘Follow Me’ and ‘Drift Away,'” Chesney added of the special performance.

In addition to singing with Uncle Kracker, Chesney also teamed up with Matt Ramsey and Brad Tursi from his opening act, Old Dominion to perform his three-week No. 1 song, “Save It For A Rainy Day,” according to the same press release.

The concert, which marked Chesney’s eleventh time playing Ford Field, was nothing short of magical, the “No Shoes Nation” singer said.

“Tonight was so magical. From the second song in, we just felt it up there. It was obvious… and when it happens like that, there’s no way to describe it! To be that alive and in the middle of all that energy is something you can dream about.”

“It was that kind of night. Everything built on everything else, such focused love and passion. We could feel it all onstage, and it felt like Detroit, Michigan felt it coming from all of us, too,” he explained.

Following the show, Chesney also took to Instagram to reflect on his special night.

“Last night in Detroit was so in the zone. So much energy exchanged and so much love inside @fordfield. Thank you, Detroit, and special thanks to my Detroit Rock City brother @unclekracker for your energy and sharing the stage. It was magic and as if we never left it,” he wrote, adding the hashtags, #HereAndNowTour #KCdetroit.

Chesney’s Detroit show was the latest stop on his 2022 Here And Now Tour. The 19-week, 21-stadium tour will conclude this weekend on Aug. 26 and 27 at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts, according to the same press release. Besides Old Dominion, Dan + Shay and Carly Pearce also served as support on Chesney’s Here And Now Tour.
