NASHVILLE -- A Nashville fan who was thrown out of a Kenny Chesney concert for looking too much like the country star received a refund and an apology from the star's record label and concert promoter.
FOX station WZTV reported that Nathan Blankenship was escorted out of Chesney's "Brothers of the Sun" concert last weekend at LP Field after some fans requested to take pictures with him because they thought he was the country star.
Blankenship claims he was told by a security guard he had to leave, because "higher-ups" thought he was causing too much "confusion."
Blankenship received an official apology from Chesney's record label, Sony, and the promoter of the event late Monday.
He will be refunded for his ticket and sent a gift basket with Sony merchandise, WZTV reported.
The concert promoter, The Messina Group, said in a statement it had nothing to do with Blankenship getting kicked out and was not even aware of the incident until they saw it in the media.
