Kenny Chesney Caps Street Week With ESPN’s “College GameDay”

Kenny Chesney The Big Revival

Kenny Chesney is no stranger to college football. Growing up a University of Tennessee Vols’ fan, few people are as passionate about college games as the songwriter from East Tennessee. So to crown a week of mass critical acclaim and appearances on “The Today Show,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the 4-time CMA and 4-time ACM Entertainer of the Year heads to Columbia, South Carolina for the Missouri v. South Carolina game, where he will serve as ESPN’s Guest Picker for “College GameDay.”

Not only is Chesney – who last served as a Guest Picker in Knoxville in 2012 – the first musician to be a Guest Picker this season, he will perform a stripped down version of the two week No. 1 “American Kids” during the show.

“If you wanna talk about people with spirit and heart, let’s talk about college football teams,” Chesney says with a laugh. “Heck, let’s talk about the fans! They are as wild and as passionate about those players as the guys out on the field… So I can’t think of a better song to play on a day like that.”

Having recorded “The Boys of Fall,” as well as producing three specials for ESPN over the past few years, Chesney’s knowledge of the game and its players is unparalleled. Still, he cautions, “Everything can change from week to week, the guys who make those calls study the teams pretty close. I’m just a guy who tries to keep up.”

Keeping up is critical. Already having appeared on four shows with “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airing tonight and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” airing on Friday, September 26, Chesney can still be seen on “CONAN” September 29, “The Meredith Vieira Show” September 30 and “The Talk” October 2.

Produced by Chesney and Buddy Cannon, The Big Revival digs deeper into the way people in the flyover live – celebrating their passions, their philosophy and the way they have a real joy for life. The early reviews are strong. USA Today calls it “a coming-of-age tale full of life-changing memories,” while Rolling Stone offered it “continually brings a sense of musical energy and emotional urgency” and Billboard opined it “captures the zeitgeist of American youth in a way John Mellencamp once owned.”

 “It’s been a long time coming,” says the man who devoted nearly a year to getting the music right, “and I’m glad it’s finally out. We worked hard getting this right: the energy, the songs, the players, saying something new and maybe important to the No Shoes Nation with this music. It’s a pretty eclectic group, who’re bound by their heart and how much they love music – and I think it’s gonna move them. Certainly the people watching “College GameDay” will get it.”

CMT Instant Jam: Kenny Chensey Premieres Next Weekend

kenny chesney

Three weeks ago, 500 lucky University of Georgia students and Athens residents were given the exclusive opportunity to see Kenny Chesney perform live at the legendary Georgia Theatre. Now the rest of Chesney’s fans can experience the No Shoes Nation party first-hand when CMT INSTANT JAM: KENNY CHESNEY airs Saturday, September 27th at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT. Launching CMT’s all-new pop-up concert series, the one-hour premiere features live performances from Chesney, along with a behind-the-scenes look at all the excitement leading up to his show. Viewers can get a sneak peek of Chesney’s “American Kids” performance exclusively on the CMT Artists App beginning tomorrow morning at 11:30 a.m. ET, and catch the video during CMT and CMT Pure music hours beginning Monday, September 22nd.

“On the rare occasion that big artists play small rooms, most fans can only dream of being a part of the experience,” says John Hamlin, SVP Music Events and Talent, CMT. “Instant Jam gives everyone a chance to attend an extremely exclusive show. Kenny Chesney is the master of surprise concerts in small clubs, so I can’t think of a better artist for our first episode.”

The 4-time Country Music Association and 4-consecutive Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year brings some of his best known hits and brand new music to CMT INSTANT JAM. Performing in front of a high-energy crowd, Chesney’s set list features “Beer In Mexico,” “I Go Back,” “Don’t Happen Twice,” “Out Last Night” and “Boys of Fall,” in addition to “Til It’s Gone” and “American Kids” from his September 23 release, The Big Revival. CMT INSTANT JAM documents the top-secret show from start to finish – beginning in the morning when posters and fliers announcing the concert were distributed in downtown Athens; continuing on to capture hundreds of enthusiastic fans as they flocked to the campus’ Phi Mu sorority house to snag a wristband, which were gone in less than eight minutes; and concluding with the final notes that played inside the Georgia Theatre.

“That crowd was so on fire,” Chesney said of the capacity-plus crowd. “To be in such a live room, with that kind of energy, it makes you want to play all night long. I’m so glad CMT was there to capture that moment. Getting to play clubs that size? It’s a whole other thing, and I always love it.”
