Chesney hangs at ESPN

Monday, September 27, 2010 – Kenny Chesney, whose new album "Hemingway's Whiskey" (BNA Records) is out Sept. 28, will spend today at ESPN's studios in Bristol, Conn. He'll primarily be talking about football, the inspiration for his Boys of Fall documentary about the passion of football and life lessons learned on the field. The "Boys of Fall" documentary debuted on ESPN in August and airs again on ESPN 2 on tonight at 7 p.m. eastern. Chesney's current single is also entitled The Boys of Fall.

At ESPN, Chesney will appear live on SportsCenter, Sports Nation, ESPNU and other shows. He will tape appearances on NFL Live and CFB Live and will do a live chat on "Growing up in East Tennessee, football was a way of life. In Knoxville, at the University of Tennessee, the whole town just wraps its arms around them," he said.

Chesney, a wide receiver in high school, said, "That's where I first learned how to work really hard - on the football field."

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 ...
