We’ll be the first to admit that Kenny Chesney’s latest album, Life on a Rock, was not his best, a 45-minute island getaway where anything resembling substance was left at check-in. But no one except Taylor Swift puts on a better arena show, one with a setlist of hits that favors the greatest over the latest. Not that the latest are all bad: 2010’s Hemingway’s Whiskey remains the best album of his 20-plus year career, and its “Somewhere With You” the best single. Come for Kenny, but don’t tailgate for too long: This tour’s openers are his best ever, with Eric Church rocking as hard as anyone in any genre, Eli Young Band repping Texas across the country, and Kacey Musgrave bringing her tales of Middle America ennui to a football stadium bigger than many of the towns she sings about.
