It was a big party in Knoxville, Tennesse, on Saturday (10/15) when, after 15 years of losing to No. 3 Alabama, the No. 6 Tennessee Vols football team won with a score of 52-49. The fans rushed to the field, and at the top of the stadium, there to witness the party, were Knoxville natives Kenny Chesney and Kelsea Ballerini.

Kenny, dressed in a Vols hat and polo, posted a photo on his Instagram, writing, “Great to be back in Rocky Top. What a game!!”

Kelsea reacted to his post, “THE HOMETOWN GOOD LUCK CHARM.” Several fans also commented, including one who wrote, “One of the best football games I’ve ever seen.” Another fan, who posted a peach emoji signaling that they are Georgia fans, wrote, “Y’all deserved to win! One of the best games I’ve seen! Glad u were there, KC.”

Kelsea Ballerini posted a black-and-white image of her looking out at the huge 100,000-plus crowd. She captioned the Instagram post, “GBO,” surrounded by two orange heart emojis.

One fan commented, “perfect time to play Half of my Hometown!!” Another fan agreed, writing, “Hey Alexa, play half of my hometown by Kelsea Ballerini and Kenny Chesney.”

Kelsea also posted a video of the fun on top of the stadium with her, Chesney, and some friends.

Last year , Ballerini and Kenny won the CMA’s for “Musical Event of the Year” and “Music Video of the Year” for their duet “Half Of My Hometown.” At the time, Chesney took to Twitter to celebrate. He wrote, “Growing up in East TN; it’s a deeper kind of home. That’s what makes being part of #halfofmyhometown so special. I’m thrilled for Kelsea to have won Musical Event & Music Video of the Year! She couldn’t deserve it more & I’m honored to be a part of it. #cmaawards.”

It marked the first CMA wins for Ballerini.
