There was a seismic shift in the college football landscape this weekend as the then-10th ranked Tennessee Volunteers upset Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide in Knoxville’s Neyland Stadium.  The game came down to a last second field goal and fans stormed the field and took down the goal posts in celebration.

In town that day in anticipation of the big top-10 match-up were several country stars who hail from East Tennessee:  Morgan Wallen, Kenny Chesney & Kelsea Ballerini.  They were seen before the game celebrating at a nearby Knoxville establishment, Saloon 16, with UT legendary QB Peyton Manning.

The three stars even hopped behind the bar, though we don’t know if it was to serve the customers or to have better access to their drinks…


After this weekend’s upset, the Tennessee Volunteers jumped up into the top-4 rankings in both the AP & Coaches polls while the Crimson Tide fell to number six in both.
