Kenny Chesney will perform at New York's Central Park on Aug. 14 as part of Good Morning America's summer concert series. His appearance on the ABC show takes place the day before he headlines the sixth annual New England Country Music Festival at Gillette Stadium near Boston. When tickets to the show went on sale in December, the concert sold out in 10 minutes even though Chesney's support acts had not yet been announced. Sugarland, Montgomery Gentry, Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum were later announced to appear. This marks Chesney's fifth consecutive time to headline a show at Gillette Stadium. He's playing 12 stadium shows this summer as part of his Sun City Carnival tour.
