- Las Vegas goes country for weekend (4-3-2009)
Beyond the Sun
Country music recording artist Kenny Chesney came to Vegas this weekend for the Academy of Country Music Awards but he will leave with something some might say is more valuable than an ACMA statuette: A key to the Playboy Club.
Two of the club’s iconic bunnies gave Chesney his key on Friday night during the singer’s visit to the sultry nightspot.
As a key holder, Chesney is now eligible for exclusive access and amenities at various Palms properties, including the Playboy Club, Moon, Rain, Ghostbar, the Palms Pool & Bungalows, and the Pearl.
Fellow A-list Playboy Club Key members include George Clooney, Matt Damon, Josh Duhamel, Paris Hilton, Michael Phelps, Brad Pitt and Gwen Stefani.
Chesney and several friends celebrated his new bling in the VIP area of both the Playboy Club and Moon. The group kicked off their ACMA weekend with glasses of Ketel One vodka mixed with cranberry juice, Red Bull, and rounds of “lemon drop” shots.
