Country star Kenny Chesney's year keeps getting better - the newlywed singer has just become the first performer to sell out three consecutive nights at Atlanta, Georgia's Philips Arena.

Chesney, who wed Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger in May (05), sold nearly 18,000 tickets for each show of a three-night stand at the venue, which ended on Monday night (18JUL05).

Only Elton John and Elvis Presley have recorded similar feats in the city - they both performed sell-out shows at former arena, the Omni.

To mark his record-breaking achievement, bosses at the venue presented Chesney with a flat-screen TV.
