Zac Brown Recalls Kenny Chesney Chartering a Plane for the Band

There are stand up guys and then there are stand up guys. According to Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney is definitely the latter. It’s not just lip service, either. Brown recently told CMIL that Chesney bent over backwards to take care of the Zac Brown Band during an emergency!

“He’s an incredible guy,” Brown gushed. “I can attest to that, because we got stuck at the airport one time. I called Kenny, and he had already gone to bed. I woke him up and he’s like, ‘Hey pal, what’s going on?’ I said, ‘We’re stuck. I gotta charter a plane. Can I charter your plane?’ He said, ‘Give me a minute.’ He has his pilot call me and send his jet out to pick us up and get us to a radio show the next day. We wouldn’t have made it there [without him].”

It’s not like Brown and Chesney were BFFs with a long history at the time, either! Brown continued, “I didn’t know Kenny that well, and he sent his jet to pick us up. That was my first thing, where I knew stories about him were true.”

It’s beyond impressive that Chesney sent a jet to pick up the band despite having a casual relationship with them at the time. See what we mean about a stand up guy!

Zac Brown Band will appear on Chesney’s Goin’ Coastal tour, which begins tonight and runs all the way through the end of the summer. It must be comforting to know that they will be traipsing across the country with someone who definitely has their back.
