SONY MUSIC NASHVILLE artist KENNY CHESNEY takes center stage in ESPN's latest “This is SportsCenter” commercial debuting on YOUTUBE TODAY (6/11) . In the spot, CHESNEY tries to ignore ESPN anchor STEVE LEVY’S attempt to join him at the popular table in the ESPN cafeteria. Other special guests include PISTOL PETE from OKLAHOMA STATE, SMOKEY from the UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE, MILES from the DENVER BRONCOS, HOOK 'EM from the UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS and two DALLAS COWBOYS cheerleaders. The commercial was filmed on ESPN's BRISTOL, CT campus.
CHESNEY said, “I got to see a lot of the anchors I've become friends with over the years, a lot of the people who come to our shows. I love visiting the ESPN campus, and I love the relationships I have there.”
The second weekend CHESNEY and BIG MACHINE RECORDS artist TIM MCGRAW’S “Brothers of the Sun Tour” played to nearly 100,000 fans in DALLAS and KANSAS CITY. More than 47,000 fans partied at COWBOYS STADIUM and one of the show's emotional high points came during “Anything But Mine," when there were so many couples slow-dancing, it was like prom in the aisles.
CHESNEY claimed, “That’s the loudest that’s been all year, TEXAS!” Special guests included DALLAS COWBOYS owner JERRY JONES and TROY AIKMAN.
The crowd SUNDAY at ARROWHEAD STADIUM was loud too. CHESNEY said, “I could hear you guys all the way out on the bus, and I couldn't wait to get out here!” He took the crowd through nearly two hours of music including a solo acoustic version of “Old Blue Chair.”
CHESNEY plays LINCOLN FINANCIAL FIELD in PHILADELPHIA this SATURDAY. His new album, “Welcome To The Fishbowl” hits stores JUNE 19th.
