On Saturday night Kenny Chesney played his first stadium show of the summer, but before the show he helped the San Francisco 49ers out with their announcement for their fourth-round draft pick.

You heard Roger Goodell announce the San Francisco 49ers first-round pick on Thursday. Then, a day later, you saw soon-to-be Hall of Famer Charles Haley announce the team’s second-round selection.

What did the 49ers have in store for the final day of the 2015 NFL Draft?

The organization brought in some serious star power on Saturday, recruiting country music star Kenny Chesney to announce San Francisco’s fourth-round pick.

Asked if he heard the singer announce his name on national television, Bell told reporters that he missed the moment because of the uproar at his draft party.

“Did he really?” Bell said. “Oh man, that’s cool.”

Kenny Celebrates Back-to-Back Number Ones

At a recent event at BMI, Kenny Chesney was on hand along with the songwriters for “American Kids” and “Til It’s Gone” to celebrate both songs reaching number one back to back.

Rodney Clawson, Luke Laird and Shane McAnally wrote “American Kids,” the first single from Chesney’s “The Big Revival” album. Clawson, David Lee Murphy and Jimmy Yeary penned “Til It’s Gone.” All of the men were present Tuesday at BMI where their publishing companies lavished them with praise and commemorative plaques to celebrate the occasion.

The writers had many thank yous to say to Chesney for recording their songs.

“Kenny is the soundtrack to our lives,” said McAnally. “The fact that he recorded any of my songs at all blows my mind. … I’m just so blessed I get to do this for a living.”

Chesney said he knew he wanted to record both songs as soon as he heard them.

“I had a vision of what I wanted (album) ‘The Big Revival’ to be,” Chesney said. “I didn’t want to do what I had done, and I didn’t want to do what everyone else was doing. I had a small target to hit.”

When McAnally played him “American Kids,” Chesney said he knew in seven or eight seconds that he wanted to record it.

“I thought it was a song that I could wrap my album around,” Chesney said. “You have no idea how much fun it is to sing on stage and I’m so happy that for the rest of my life I get to sing it.”

Chesney Co-Producing New David Lee Murphy Album

Kenny Chesney announced recently that he’s helping produce a new album for David Lee Murphy.

Kenny Chesney has taken the David Lee Murphy-penned hits “Pirate Flag,” “Livin’ in Fast Forward” and “‘Til It’s Gone” into the upper reaches of the country charts, and now he’s returning the favor by working on a brand-new album with the prolific tunesmith. Chesney made the announcement at the offices of performing rights organization BMI while accepting awards for a pair of his chart-topping hits, calling Murphy “the original – and last – of the hillbilly rock stars,” and noting that 20 years have passed since the singer-songwriter topped the charts as an artist with fan favorites, “Party Crowd” and “Dust on the Bottle.”

“We got together to make a record of songs we liked the sound of . . . things we’d want to listen to ourselves,” Murphy says in a statement revealing the surprise collaboration. “Kenny’s got great ears, and I kept sending him demos — more than he could ever record, but he just loved the songs. One day, he said, ‘I think we oughta go make a record!'”

Working with his longtime producer, Buddy Cannon, Chesney and Murphy co-produced No Zip Code, a 10-track collection which features Chesney on the title cut and bluegrass legend Dan Tyminski (from Alison Krauss and Union Station) on “As a Crow Flies,” which is described as “stark and organic.”

The Federal Aviation Administration has named an aviation arrival procedure into Nashville after Kenny Chesney. The CHSNE TWO arrival brings aircraft into the Nashville International Airport from the southwest, and includes the waypoints CHSNE, TIKKI, GDSTF, and BGSTR (aviation waypoints/intersections are always five letters).

So if you’re on an airliner coming into Nashville from the southwest, you just may be flying the CHSNE TWO arrival! How cool is that?!

There are also arrival procedures named after Brad Paisley (PASLY THREE) and Taylor Swift (SWFFT TWO), and departure procedures named after Merle Haggard (HGGRD TWO), Dolly Pardon (PARDN TWO), and apparently Aaron Tippin (TIPPN TWO).
