It was all over the internet this morning, happy fans posting pictures with Kenny Chesney in a Hyannis pub. It got us wondering, why has the country superstar been popping up in New England seaside towns lately.
(thank you New England Country Music!)
If you remember earlier in the summer he showed up in Gloucester for no apparent reason, except perhaps to just enjoy the summer in his favorite state away from home…
Unfortunately, it appears Kenny’s time in Hyannis this past weekend was not a happy one, despite the smile on his face with fans. He was on the Cape to mourn the loss of his friend and fan, Saoirse Kennedy Hill, who tragically died at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port on Thursday, from an apparent overdose. Saoirse long suffered from depression. She was the only child of Courtney Kennedy Hill (the fifth child of Robert and Ethel Kennedy’s eleven kids) and Paul Michael Hill.
Chesney had recently posted a picture with the 22 year old former BC student, expressing his devastating loss..
Our hearts and prayers go out to the Kennedy family and friends during this extremely difficult time.
A private funeral mass was scheduled for today. According to USA TODAY , family and friends gathered at the Our Lady of Victory Church in Centerville, to pay their final respects.
