The singer/songwriter and one of his bandmates performed Oct. 21 at 35,000 feet in the air for passengers on a flight from Nashville to Chicago. The musicians played the title track from Kearney’s second studio album, 2006’s Nothing Less To Lose.
“I’ve always actually wanted to pick up my guitar in the middle of a flight and just walk down the aisle and play songs, but this is the first time I’ve ever actually gotten the chance to do it,” Kearney said in a video documenting the surprise performance.
According to a post on Southwest’s blog, the airline is teaming up with more artists for the “ultimate in-air entertainment experience.”
Upcoming Kearney dates back on the ground include Friday’s show at New York City’s Webster Hall, Saturday at Philadelphia’s Theatre Of The Living Arts; and Sunday in Clifton Park, N.Y., at Northern Lights.
