San Diego Padres ace pitcher Jake Peavy joined Kenny Chesney on stage on Thursday night at the Cricket Wireless Amphitheater to help Kenny sing his new hit song “Better As A Memory”. From the San Diego Union-Tribune:

Jake Peavy may be on the disabled list, but his voice was in fine form when Kenny Chesney coaxed him from the wings for a surprise onstage appearance Thursday night at Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre.

“Jake, you sing pretty good,” Chesney said after the Padres’ pitcher joined him for a few lines of the country superstar’s bittersweet ballad, “Better as a Memory (Than as Your Man).”Both have Southern roots. Chesney hails from Tennessee; Peavy is from Alabama.

It’s not the first time Peavy has been linked to Chesney.

Last October, a New York Times article noted that before pitching a game against the Colorado Rockies, Peavy was in the Denver clubhouse “strumming a bat like an air guitar” to Chesney’s hit, “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem.”
