56122146KV061_39th_Annual_C Kenny Chesney is still planning his 2009 tour, Sun City Carnival, which he says is to honor all the tailgaters that have so much fun in the parking lots outside of his shows.

“Sun City Carnival pretty much sums up what we do on any given day,” he said in a press release. “Because if you hit a parking lot at any one of our shows, you’re gonna find people getting out, people blasting their radios, people hanging with their buddies – some who came together from all over, just because it’s so much a part of how their friendship was formed.”

thumbnail Speaking of friendships forming… Everyone is reporting now that Kenny Chesney is dating former Miss Tennessee contestant Amy Colley. Miss Tennessee is a Miss America preliminary pageant. Amy didn’t win that one, but she was selected as Miss Tennessee USA in 2005 (that one is a preliminary for the Miss USA/Miss Universe Pageant). The Miss Tennessee USA Pageant is held in Clarksville, Tenn.

 

Amy swimsuit Here’s a shot of Amy from the 2008 Miss Tennessee Pageant. She was a preliminary swimsuit winner, and second runner-up to Miss Tennessee. that pageant was held in Jackson, Tenn., this past June.

And, should Miss Colley ever become Mrs. Chesney, she won’t be the first former pageant winner to trade in her crown for a cowboy hat.

Allison Mrs. Jay DeMarcus was Miss Tennessee in 1999. Here’s a photo of Allison Alderson (DeMarcus) taken during her reign as Miss Tennessee. (This one was also the Miss America Preliminary pageant).

jay5 Gosh Jay, you even had to perform at your own reception. smile_regular I’m sure he didn’t HAVE to, but it was real nice of the guys to do the music – I know that was a fantastic wedding reception!

ETSU Kenny I really got off the track with this write-up. but it all just seemed so darned interesting… and now, let me close with one more picture of Kenny – this is from his year book at East Tennessee State University. He graduated in 1990. By the way, Amy Colley is also an alumni of ETSU.

Thanks to all of you who’ve entered the contest to win Toby’s Christmas Classic CD -  hope the rest of you will send in an entry soon… the deadline to enter is Dec. 17, 2008.

I’ll talk to you all tomorrow.Write when you have a chance. I love hearing from each of you.
