Is the third time the charm? CBS says they’ll air the Kenny Chesney “Sunday Morning” profile this Sunday (Nov. 3):

The special segment followed Chesney as he wrapped up his 2013 “No Shoes Nation Tour” and took the trip to the Boston Medical Center to capture the moment when Chesney came face to face with the people his Spread the Love Fund was directly affecting. The fund supports ongoing care for amputee victims from the Boston Marathon bombing.

Chesney said “Watching what happened on tv, as the entire nation did, really threw me” adding “But meeting these amazing people who’re putting their lives together, hearing their stories and seeing how they approach getting their lives back… I was moved beyond words.”

The upcoming special is the second time Chesney has been featured on “Sunday Morning.” Chesney said “I knew when they decided to come back, they weren’t looking for a ride on the gator.”

Chesney added “I’ve grown a lot as an artist, as a person since that first one – and I think that maybe intrigued them. A lot of soul searching goes into what we do, and what we’re doing in Boston in terms of the city, the fans and the Fund, especially.”

Chesney Attends World Series Game

Kenny Chesney was in his beloved Boston on Wednesday night for game one of the World Series featuring the Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals.

“It’s a product of, oddly enough, where I grew up,” Chesney said. “I didn’t grow up in the Northeast or New England at all. But when I was a kid, growing up we didn’t have cable, so I spent my Saturdays, the only access to baseball I had was ‘This Week in Baseball’ and I looked forward to that as a kid. The only games they had on Saturdays always seemed like the Red Sox or Cincinnati Reds. I loved those two teams growing up. Even playing Little League I wanted to be on either the Reds or the Sox as a kid, so that’s where it started.”

Then came 2004 when the Red Sox erased 86 years of misery and won the World Series.

“In 2004 I became really good friends with Kevin Millar, Mike Timlin and Tim Wakefield, and how can you not love those guys and love that team. I love this city, actually.”

Kenny joined Kevin Millar on MLB Network’s Intentional Talk. Watch below:
