No Reality TV for Chesney

Kenny Chesney’s life is “real enough”, so don’t expect to see him on reality TV or even acting on the big screen:

My life’s real enough, you know? I don’t think so. I really don’t. I just don’t think that I would. I would rather concentrate on tryin’ to connect with fans in the audience and tryin’ to write a great song and cut great music, and that takes up a lot of time, to be honest with you. I don’t think you’ll ever see me do that.”

Kenny adds that he lacks the desire — and the talent — to act. “I’ve even had a lot of people ask me if I want to act. I’m never sayin’ never, but it’s not something I wake up everyday wanting to do, and so I don’t think I’d ever take a year off to go do a movie or something. I wouldn’t be that good at it anyway. I think I realized doin’ the ‘You Save Me’ video where it took us three days to shoot three minutes of an opening of a video. I realized right then I wanted my day job back — that I was never gonna have the patience to act (laughs).” .)

Phil Vassar has a new album dropping December 15th and Kenny Chesney co-wrote one of the tracks:

Phil Vassar will release a new album, Traveling Circus, on Universal South on Dec. 15. Vassar’s current single is “Everywhere I Go.” He produced the album and hired his road band to play on the project. He also wrote or co-wrote all 11 tracks on the album, and his co-writers include Kenny Chesney (on “I Will Remember You”). Vassar enlisted his friend Jason Erwin, a high school art teacher, to paint the album artwork. In addition, recent film school grad Chris Cella produced the video for “Everywhere I Go,” and aspiring photographer Wes Aldridge handled the photo shoot for the album.
