– "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 there...no 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.
