Kenny Pickett says Steelers' trip to Kenny Chesney concert got 'a little out of hand'

By , Audacy

Some members of the Pittsburgh Steelers went to a Kenny Chesney concert earlier this month, and apparently it ended the same way for them that it does for many other attendees of such a show.

The legendary country singer played at Heinz Field on June 11, which coincided with most Steelers players being in town for offseason programs. In an effort to build some camaraderie, a handful of players, from rookies to veterans, decided to attend the concert.

Among them was new Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett, who said on the “Pat McAfee Show” that it was quite a time.

“We went to Kenny Chesney, so I’m sure you guys are familiar with how that goes in Pittsburgh,” Pickett said. “That was an unbelievable time. Really, really enjoyed that, had a little suite, had a bunch of guys up there, we were tailgating and everything. So that was some good camaraderie.

“We called the night a little early, it was getting a little out of hand, but it was definitely something that’s a good memory to have going into our first season. It was some rookies, had some veteran guys there. It was awesome.”

If the Steelers end up building impeccable chemistry and having a strong season, maybe they'll be able to chalk it up to that out of hand night at the Kenny Chesney concert.
