Country rapper Kid Rock, who hosts CMT’s 20 Greatest Redneck Videos later this month, got that invitation when he first moved to Nashville, and as he revealed to GQ magazine, P.F. Chang’s is the last place he expected to end up.
“Kenny Chesney’s gonna take me to dinner,” Kid Rock recalls. “I’m like, ‘Cool, I want to go eat some…back-porch home cooking’—you know, barbecue, something like that. He goes, ‘Meet me at P.F. Chang’s.’”
So what happens when Kid and Kenny sat down for dinner at the chain restaurant?
“Kenny’s…got, like, a little umbrella drink,” he adds. “I’m like, ‘Come on, Kenny.’ I couldn’t believe it…He’s like, ‘Oh, it’s my favorite restaurant.’ This is the exact opposite of what I had in mind.”
