CBS Sunday Morning finally aired their Kenny Chesney / Boston special this morning. If you missed it, no online video is available yet but an accompanying story is available at

Dahler caught up with Chesney at the last stop on his five-month long tour: Gillette Stadium in the Boston suburb of Foxboro, Mass., not a place that typically comes to mind when you think of country music.

“This is a very passionate town,” Chesney said. “They’re passionate about sports. They’re passionate about life. They’re passionate about music and food. And they work really hard. And those are all the things that I grew up on.”

But Chesney’s connection with his Boston area fans stretches far beyond the parking lot of his sold-out shows. He was in Florida, on a day off from touring, when news of the Boston Marathon bombing broke.

“When I saw this happen, and I saw this arrogant look on these kids’ faces . . . it pissed me off,” he said, “and I thought about the relationship through music that I’ve had with all the people that have come to play over the years, that’s what led me to do something.”
