AUBURN, Alabama — No shoes, no shirt, new sod.
Auburn’s natural grass at Jordan-Hare Stadium took quite the beating over the weekend during a massive Kenny Chesney concert.
The massive stage, along with equipment, flooring and thousands of people on the field, killed most of the grass at Jordan-Hare Stadium. Auburn’s grounds crew provided before-and-after photos of the carnage on Twitter.

Chesney’s concert, along with country stars Sam Hunt and Miranda Lambert, drew a crowd of 50,430 fans inside Jordan-Hare Stadium. In the corner of the stadium was Chesney’s famous “No Shoes Nation” flag flying high, a take on his hit song “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems.”
Auburn’s grounds crew is known across the SEC as one of the best and regularly re-sods the stadium when the grass takes a beating, so no need to worry, Auburn fans. The field will be looking great again when the Tigers open the season against Clemson on Sept. 3.
