No Foot, No Problem for Chesney

4/27/2008 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kenny ChesneyKenny Chesney suffered a foot injury during his entrance to the stage last night -- but finished his set without incident. Who says country stars ain't tough?

He was coming up through the bottom of the stage on an elevator, when his foot (which was harnessed in for safety) got stuck between the lift and the stage. After finally freeing himself, Chesney performed his whole set -- he was the final act of a show that included LeAnn Rimes and Brooks & Dunn -- with a noticeable limp.

Chesney said afterwards, "I took one look at those fans, and there was no way I wasn't going on." And they all took one look at him and said, "Hey, wasn't he married to Renée Zellweger?"

Hey, Kelli, if he leaves you a couple let me know and I'll fly in. Heck, I'll spring for the beer and truck rental if you don't have one. Or should be get a limo. Doesn't quite seem right for country music though.

I was at the concert in Columbia. You could tell right away that he was in pain. It was really hard to enjoy the show knowing he was in pain. But regardless Kenny did continue for us, the fans! He felt our magic just like we felt his. I'm glad to see he is doing better though. He still put on one hell of a show. I love Kenny Chesney!! I don't care if he marries 500 times he is still the best entertainer in country music!!!!!!
