Kenny Chesney is inspirational, with loads of No. 1 hits and high-energy concerts that exemplify his charismatic personality and zeal for music. But one of the most heartwarming aspects of this successful performer is his tender heart, which he recently portrayed in the aftermath of the Newtown tragedy.

According to Country 92-5, one of the Newtown victims was a little girl who adored the ‘Pirate Flag’ singer. In fact, CNN’s Cooper Anderson revealed that before 7-year-old Grace McDonnell’s parents lowered her white casket into the ground, they took a black Sharpie marker and wrote on it, “Kenny Chesney, No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems.”

When Chesney was asked to call the grieving parents, he went above and beyond; he invited them and several other families to his Mohegan Sun shows and met privately with them to hear their stories. There’s no doubt that at the end of the night, when he left with a Sandy Hook bracelet on his wrist, he also took the stories of the sweet little girl.

For one night, Chesney helped a few grieving Newtown families ‘Feel Like a Rock Star.’ Previously, the superstar showed his support through the recording of ‘Amazing Grace,’ which played during a special honoring the victims. Hopefully, through the worldwide kindness bestowed on the tiny town, Newtown will continue to heal, remembering and honoring the young lives that were taken far too soon.
