Chesney presents at ESPY awards

Wednesday, July 7, 2010 – "When we're on the road, we wake up with SportsCenter and leave ESPN on all day," said Chesney, who played high school football and is co-producing a documentary about high school football. "It's the one thing on the road that remains a constant for us out matter where we are, it's the one thing that is always on. So being asked to be a part of something with Drew Brees, Reggie Bush and Terrell Owens is cool."

Other celebrities at the ESPYs are actors Samuel L. Jackson, Will Farrell, Zac Efron, Tracy Morgan, Ashley Greene and Emmanuelle Chriqui, ESPN's Chris Berman and Stuart Scott, snow boarder/X Games star Shaun White, driver Danica Patrick, figure skater Evan Lysacek, quarterback Aaron Rogers, tight end Jeremy Shockley and swimmer Dara Torres.

"We go hard, especially, on the road," Chesney said. "These are the things I can't always make work... the scheduling is just too impossible. This year, I've made a 3D movie, a documentary and a record I'm really proud of. That's a pretty great year, and this just makes it that much better."

"Hemingway's Whiskey," Chesney's first new studio project in almost 3 years, arrives in-stores on Sept. 28. Look for a new single to debut at country radio Monday, July 12.

The loss really belonged to the fans, as the original "Here and Now" record Chesney was supporting was a beauty – from the stirring "Knowing You" to the snarky "Wasted", ...
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 ...
