Country singer Kenny Chesney, who’ll perform Friday and Saturday at Gillette Stadium, stopped by Patriots practice Thursday, clutching a football and chatting with coach Bill Belichick. Chesney has performed so many times at Gillette over the past decade, Foxborough’s become something of a second home, and he’s become very friendly with the Patriots organization. Indeed, the singer from East Tennessee was seated next to Pats owner Robert Kraft during Super Bowl LI and could be seen cheering when Tom Brady’s team made its historic comeback against the Atlanta Falcons.
