Taste of Country’s Kenny Chesney Contest Winner Announced
Taste of Country is thrilled to reveal the lucky winner of our Kenny Chesney contest! We'll be flying winner John Bruce Evans and a guest out from Texas to Green Bay, Wis. to see Chesney perform live on June 11 at Lambeau Field, where they'll also get the chance to meet the country superstar.
"My wife and I both entered in hopes of winning and surprising my 15-year-old daughter with the tickets for her birthday -- she is fixing to be 16 on Monday, May 9," John Bruce Evans tells Taste of Country. "We never thought we would win, so when my wife called me and told me we had won I was shocked and couldn't believe it. My daughter had the same reaction, and now that it has finally sunk we are so excited and somewhat still in shock that we won!"
Evans says that he and his wife brought their daughters to see Chesney once about seven years ago, and that they're all big fans of him. "We can relate to his songs," he says. "I dream of living on the beach and soaking up the sun with a cold one in my hand."
Sounds like an ideal aspiration to us -- and the family's already got one element of their dream beach life planned: "He has so many great songs, but we do plan to name our boat 'Suntanned Toes' after the lyrics in his song 'When the Sun Goes Down.'"
Congratulations to Evans! If you didn't get picked this time around, don't forget to enter Taste of Country's new contest to see and meet Brad Paisley in West Palm Beach, Fla.
