(Newser) – Nathan Blankenship probably thought that his resemblance to Kenny Chesney was a blessing (some people do, after all, think his tractor's sexy). But that was before he found himself kicked out of a Chesney concert for precisely that reason. Of course, Blankenship happened to be imitating Chesney at the time, taking pictures with fans who mistook him for the country singer. He was then approached by a security guard who told him he was creating confusion and that "higher ups" wanted him tossed out of Nashville's L-P Field.

Despite Blankenship's somewhat ill-advised prank, the concert promoter ended up apologizing to him and stating it had nothing to do with him being thrown out, WZTV reports. Sony, Chesney's record label, also apologized and is refunding Blankenship the ticket cost and sending him a basket of probably-lame Sony merchandise.
