Country Music's history in Wildwood goes back to Kenny Chesney on the Beach

The recent success of country music on the Wildwood Beach was born thanks to a free concert thrown by American Express with Kenny Chesney.

Chesney performed his free show for thousands on a beautiful night in June of 2012. Even Chesney himself has said that was his favorite show ever.
