According to a couple of articles, Kenny Chesney is on the short list of acts being considered for the half time show at the 2011 Super Bowl in Dallas.
There’s talk that Tim [McGraw] might be a strong candidate for the NFL’s Super Bowl halftime show next year. In the wake of this year’s performance by The Who, Fox executives are leaning away from a classic-rock act. According to USA Today, six artists have been floated thus far as possibilities for the 2011 show and four of them are country: Tim, Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn and Garth Brooks. The two other targets have had country hits: Jimmy Buffett and Bon Jovi.

This Saturday, Kenny Chesney will tape an episode of the Oprah Winfrey show that will air on April 9th. They’ll discuss, among other things, his upcoming movie “Summer in 3D” and a surprise is promised for the show:
“If there’s one thing about Oprah,” Chesney said, “it’s the way she makes you feel so comfortable and so understood. I’ve done her show three times, I think, and every time, you work harder than you realize – cause you just want to be as good as she is – and you open up more than you knew you could…and sometimes you even find out things about yourself. Or at least, I do.”
“So, when we started talking about where to take this movie…to bring people into what it was, how it came together, what it means to me…,” Chesney said. “I figured this movie came out of a whole bunch of dreams I’ve had over the years; where would be the dream place to show people what we’ve been doing? And really, there’s only one place: ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show.’ And just like jamming with my idols onstage, or playing the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Ga. or selling out Gillette Stadium all those years ago, if you’re willing to dream it, it can happen.”
As for the surprise, “when the producer’s put the question to me, it took me back,” said Chesney “In some ways, obviously, I have the means to do whatever I’d truly want to do, but sometimes that means stopping and looking around. With our schedule that’s not always as easy as you’d think. Sometimes, too, people will do things for Oprah, they might not do for the rest of us.”
Without giving away the secret, Chesney took a field team from “Oprah” with him to the Florida Keys for a special afternoon, according to his publicist.
