Kenny Chesney was on Jay Leno Thursday to talk about his new movie, Summer in 3D, which had its premier in Las Vegas on Friday, April 16, and will be in theaters nationwide for seven shows only, April 21, 22, 24, 25, 28, 29 and May 2.
Anyone who is planning to go probably needs to get to Fandango, or one of those online sites where they can buy their tickets ahead of time. There are seven shows listed at our Carmike 14 in Johnson City, Tenn., and I’m sure they are going to sell out fast!
Kenny is from Luttrell, Tenn., not all that far from here. He went to college in Johnson City at ETSU, and most of us got to see him at least once when he was playing for tips at Chucky Trading Company while he was a college student. When you figure out the number of tickets that are going to be available, and the number of fans Kenny has – ordering tickets ahead will probably prove to be a very good move. (And yes, that is Kenny’s photo from his college yearbook)
All I can say is “I must have been asleep that day,” because I really don’t remember all the articles and press releases about Kenny being drafted by the New Orleans Saints, but according to his interview with Jay Leno this past Thursday, Kenny was actually drafted, signed, practiced – for a day, with the Saints.
Kenny said he got a 1-day contract with the Saints that came complete with a press conference, and a lot of media attention. Kenny did get to run around in a helmet, and shirt with his name on the back while he caught a few passes on the field.
He did play football in high school, and he is good friends with a lot of the University of Tennessee players (even though he is an East Tennessee State University graduate), so maybe if his music career hadn’t worked out, he could have played a little ball. At least he looks good in a jersey.
I guess that’s all for now. It’s about time for me to go to the grocery store. Nice to see the clouds have moved out of here, the rain has stopped, and I think we’re going to get a pretty good Saturday. I do need to get some e-mail answered. Thanks to all of you who’ve been writing! I really enjoy hearing from each of you.
I’ll talk to you in a little while. Have a good day!
