Kenny Chesney was in Columbia, South Carolina on Friday night to attend a private screening of “The Believer,” a documentary co-produced by Kenny about SC football coach Steve Spurrier.

Chesney flew in Friday night for an uber-private screening of a documentary featuring South Carolina head football coach Steve Spurrier, held at Williams-Brice Stadium with the Spurrier family and very few, lucky guests.

In July, it was reported by Rolling Stone that Chesney had co-produced the documentary titled “The Believer.”

The one hour biopic is all about the legendary head coach, as part of the “SEC Storied” series.

“They spent a lot of time with my family, wife, kids, grandkids and so forth, and a lot of former players. So hopefully it will turn out ok,” Spurrier said at a recent SEC media day event, in true nonchalant Head Ball Coach fashion.

“The Believer” will air (where else) on the SEC Network at 8:00 p.m. EDT on August 27th – the eve of the network’s inaugural live football broadcast (which features Spurrier’s team – the No. 9 South Carolina Gamecocks – going up against the No. 20/21 Texas A&M Aggies).

Gamecock fans and football fans alike should enjoy the piece, which will include Spurrier’s tenure as a Heisman winning quarterback at Florida University, his brief stint in the NFL and how he made believers out of Gamecock nation.
