Looking for something to do the 9th of September? You are already probably going to be in Bristol for the matchup against the Volunteers.  Bristol Motor Speedway announced today that Kenny Chesney will play a concert at the speedway the night before the game.

The Band Perry and Old Dominion will serve as opening acts. In addition to the monster transition taking place to convert a racetrack into a football field, the folks at Bristol Motor Speedway decided to have a concert as well.  The estimated seating will be around 45k, and tickets for the concert will go on sale June 9.  Should be pretty interesting, especially if Chesney knows any Metallica.  It would be cool to hear a country version of "Enter Sandman", as I can virtually guarantee "Rocky Top" will be played.
