Over the weekend, Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean had the honor of co-headlining the first major country music show at Pasadena, California's Rose Bowl in the historic venue's 93-year history. It was a moment Chesney, in the middle of his Big Revival Tour, still finds surreal.

"I've seen so many games played there, so much history — and I understand the heart it took from every athlete who's ever come out of those tunnels," says the country superstar. "To stand on that stage, I knew I wanted to try to honor all those folks who've come before us."

Photographer Allister Ann spent the day with Chesney, capturing his unique pre-game warmup and dynamic two-hour show. See what went on behind the scenes right here:
