BNA RECORDS star KENNYCHESNEY’s new concert film, “KENNY CHESNEY: SUMMER IN 3D,” had an impressive debut over the weekend, especially when you consider that it was showing only in 3D theatres, and in limited release. The showing was strong enough to make it the #7 film in the nation.
“This isn't the same kind of animal as a straight theatrical release,” said CHESNEY. “And I hate that people didn't understand you had to find the time the film would be shown, and that all theatres are not capable of screening it … because this film is as much about those faces as it is about reliving last year's pretty amazing summer. In spite of that, when the director called to tell us our first night we'd out-performed the entire theatrical showings of some very big acts, I was thrilled. Because it means that the people who came out last summer and over the last 8 years, they wanna remember how good it felt just as much as we do … and they figured out how to get out of the house at very specific times for an unconventional film.” For more on KENNY including a look at the trailer for the film, visit www.kennychesney.com.
