Country music singer Kenny Chesney, in town for a show Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium, made a stop Friday in St. Joseph to visit the Chiefs in training camp.

He’s not the first country superstar to hang with Kansas City’s pro athletes ... it doesn’t seem that long ago when Garth Brooks was hanging out with the Royals.

Well it was. Brooks, retired from his country music fame at the time, joined the Royals in 2004 for spring training in Surprise, Arizona.

Brooks was playing baseball to raise awareness for Teammates for Kids Foundation.

Jason Aldean and Chesney perform Saturday at Arrowhead Stadium. Tickets are $35-$535 through Ticketmaster.com.
