WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va., February 21, 2013 - Country music superstar Kenny Chesney has been tapped to headline a star-studded musical lineup for this year's Greenbrier Classic Concert Series, July 1-7, 2013. Commemorating The Greenbrier Resort's fourth annual PGA Tour, the "Pirate Flag" singer will take the stage with his biggest hits, including 19 No. 1 songs, such as "There Goes My Life," "Summertime," "Living in Fast Forward," "You & Tequila" and "When the Sun Goes Down."
As a four-time CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year, Chesney is well-known for his high-energy shows that often sellout NFL-sized arenas. "This country is an amazing place," he says. "I can see it every night at my shows: all the heart, the passion and the fun I can see out in the crowd. And to be able to spend the 4th of July somewhere as historic as The Greenbrier, that's a pretty incredible place to celebrate our nation's birthday!"
"We couldn't be happier to have an American superstar like Kenny Chesney to top the bill at our Greenbrier Classic concert series," Jim Justice, resort owner, says. "Kenny's at the top of his game--making him the perfect performer to match the world's best golfers who will be teeing off on The Old White TPC course that week!"
Chesney will hit the stage on Thursday, July 4, at 8:30, which is also the opening day for the PGA Tour at the State Fair of West Virginia. Admission to the event is included in the overall price for the tournament badges, currently priced at $199 per person.
