There are some people on social media that claim that Kenny Chesney would never return to Western New York after his 'horse incident' with Tim McGraw. You'll see it somewhere today on social media. But, Chesney has been here a few times since that incident. At least to Darien Lake for some concerts. The last time that Chesney was at Darien Lake was in 2009 and he brought Miranda Lambert and Lady A with him (what a lineup).

In case you didn't know, here is the 'horse incident' with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw that happened in Buffalo. In 2000, they were playing a concert with George Strait at Ralph Wilson Stadium and the Erie County Sheriff's were there with their mounted horses. The story goes that Chesney, McGraw and his manager took one of the horses and then there was an altercation between them and the police officers. The singers got arrested and appeared in court in 2001 where they were found not guilty by the jury.

At the time, Chesney was 33 and McGraw, 34 when they were dismissed, Faith Hill spent time in Orchard Park during the trial. Tim and Faith have talked about the incident when they were here in Buffalo while on tour together and they seemed to think that the situation was blown out of proportion.
