Chesney movie premieres April 17 in Vegas

Friday, April 16, 2010 – "Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3D" will premiere on April 17 in Las Vegas. Chesney will be on hand to present the concert film, which also incorporates archival footage, still pictures and backstage moments with his own reflections on the fans, memories made and the motivation he draws on.

The event will stream live at or at

On Sunday, Chesney performs at the Academy of Country Music Awards, where he is nominated for 4 more awards: Entertainer, Male Vocalist, Vocal Event for I'm Alive with Dave Matthews and producing that single.

Chesney said, "I stand on those stages every night - and I can't believe the energy those fans bring night after night. But watching all the footage that went into this film, it's amazing to see this show not just from the Goodyear blimp, all over the stadium, but literally from the band's perspective. Seeing that made me want to bring people even further into who I am and what this journey has been made of. To see this, it's not just the excitement of one of the shows, it's a real sense of who I am, how I got here and what the fans mean to me."

The film was directed by Joe Thomas, a music industry veteran who has recorded such artists ranging from Billy Idol to Paul McCartney to Brian Wilson to Elton John, and as director and producer, has shot more than 100 concerts, including Bon Jovi, Dave Matthews, Tom Petty, in high definition and digital surround sound.

The footage comes from filming over six nights in five locations - Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seattle, Foxboro, Mass. and Indianapolis - during his Sun City Carnival Tour.

CD review - Here and Now For many years now, Kenny Chesney has been the number one yacht country artist; one never spotted far from an ocean or without an adult beverage in his hand. However, this album's title track expresses a much deeper perspective on life. "I must've sat on a dozen islands/Watched the sun sink into the sea." Previously, island living was the reason for life. Now, life's purpose is described as much more internal than external. Call it trading that pirate flag for a little more mindfulness. ...
CD review - Songs for the Saints Kenny Chesney's "Song for the Saints" is a step in the right direction for the popular country star. Inspired by the Hurricane Irma disaster, which hit Chesney personally as it destroyed a house he owned in the U.S. Virgin Islands, these songs are more serious and heartfelt than typical Chesney music. Best of all is "Love for Love City," a reggae duet with Ziggy Marley incorporating steel drums into an inviting island mix. It's followed by a cover of Lord ...
