Country star Kenny Chesney said that the death of a fan at his recent concert is “heartbreaking.”

An unidentified woman fell to her death from an escalator Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado, following Chesney’s performance on Saturday. The woman was reportedly seated on the escalator railing before she plunged to the concourse below at 10:52 p.m.

“I was devastated to learn of the loss of someone after our show,” Chesney, 54, told the Denver Post in a statement following the incident. “There had been so much joy, so much heart coming from the people of Denver last night — and to hear this is heartbreaking.”

“Life is precious. Sharing music brings us together and that love we share makes us so much more. For the lady who came to share that love, there are no words,” he continued. “For her friends and family’s loss, I grieve with them and for them.”

The police don’t believe there was any foul play that caused the woman to go over the escalator’s edge. “To my understanding, there was none of that, it was just an accidental fall, I don’t think anyone pushed her or anything like that,” said police spokesman Nate Magee.

This isn’t the first time Chesney has been involved in a police matter, the “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” singer was arrested in 2000 with fellow country singer Tim McGraw, when Chesney stole a police officer’s horse in Buffalo, New York, after opening at the George Strait Country Music Festival. 

“When the deputy went to remove Chesney from the horse,” Erie County Sheriff Patrick Gallivan explained. “Another deputy was going to assist [him]. McGraw came and jumped the second deputy from behind, wrapped one arm around his neck and was choking him. Now I’m not suggesting he was trying to [really] choke him. But he had him with his arm around his neck, and he was holding on.”

“Then that deputy needed assistance to get [McGraw] off. When the [third] deputy went to assist the one that McGraw had a choke-hold on,” he continued, noting that was when a “scuffle” ensued and both deputies sustained minor injuries.  

Chesney was arrested for disorderly conduct, but McGraw was charged with second degree assault. Both artists were acquitted in May of 2001.

I’ve made so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve (nag-94) made such great money. It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. Here’s what I do.
