LATEST: Country star Kenny Chesney "felt great" as he resumed his tour on Thursday (01May08) after injuring his foot in an onstage accident.
The singer shattered tendons in his foot during a concert in South Carolina on Saturday night (26Apr08) on machinery lifting him up onto the stage.
After receiving medical treatment, the 40-year-old returned to the stage at Austin's Frank Erwin Center, Texas to continue his Poets + Pirates tour.
He tells People.com, "I had eight shots in my foot (to deaden the pain) and I wasn't sure how it was going to feel.
"I gotta tell you, once I hit that stage, it felt great."
Chesney - who didn't break any bones because his foot had been protected by his trademark cowboy boots - admits he was happy to continue with his performance despite the injury.
He adds, "It happened so fast, I was pretty much in shock during the first two or three songs.
"I didn't know what was wrong. I knew it was bad, but I didn't know what it was.
"I feel bad that I didn't get to give the people (in South Carolina) everything I intended to, but I gave 'em everything I had."
