Chesney Reflects on Loss of Jonathan Demme

If you’re aware of who Jonathan Demme is, it’s probably as the director for movies like ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ and ‘Philadelphia,’ but he also directed the Kenny Chesney production “American Express Unstaged” in 2012. Demme passed away on Wednesday:

“Jonathan Demme understood how to capture music on film in a way that kept the heart and the energy intact,” Chesney tells Rolling Stone about working with the legendary filmmaker. Demme died on Wednesday (April 26) from cancer and heart disease. He was 73.

“I learned so much watching him work when he shot our show in Wildwood, N.J., about songs I already knew — and his love for how music looks when it’s being played live has stayed with me,” Chesney adds.

The country star’s Unstaged show was live-streamed on YouTube from Wildwood Beach, N.J., and reached people globally, but even more impressive, 20,000 fans showed up to see the concert in person. Chesney, a 2017 Country Jam headliner, performed almost 30 songs from his expansive catalog, including classics like “You and Tequila,” “Somewhere With You” and his early hit “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.” The release of the film was in partnership with the launch of Chesney’s 2012 album, Welcome to the Fishbowl, which topped Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and includes the two Top 10 singles “Come Over” and “El Cerrito Place.”

Chesney Attends Private Screening of Steve Spurrier Film

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.

Chesney Produces Documentary on Steve Spurrier

news_spurrierKenny Chesney has once again teamed up with his longtime video director Shaun Silva, this time to tell the story of legendary college football coach Steve Spurrier:

Steve Spurrier will take his turn in ESPN and the SEC Network’s “SEC Storied” series at 8 p.m. on Aug. 27 in a documentary titled, “The Believer.” The film covers Spurrier’s career as a player and coach, featuring interviews with his former players and his family, and addresses why and how Spurrier became Spurrier.

“It was a documentary they wanted to put together,” Spurrier said on Tuesday at SEC Media Days. “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.”

The trailer was released on Wednesday, a 90-second burst of Spurrier playing and coaching at Florida, Duke and South Carolina. The visor-tossing, the grin and the trophies are all well represented.

ESPN and the SEC had been discussing a Spurrier film, and once ESPN’s acclaimed “30 For 30” series began, it gained traction. A country music star provided an assist.


“There had been some talk of doing a Spurrier documentary, and when Kenny got involved, it kind of just fell together,” said Andy Billman, a producer of ESPN Films.

Kenny Chesney and Spurrier have been friends since 2007, when Chesney was performing at Colonial Life Arena and invited Spurrier on stage. Chesney, a football fan and longtime supporter of Tennessee, received a No. 7 USC jersey from Spurrier when Chesney played Williams-Brice Stadium in 2013 (No. 7 not for Jadeveon Clowney, but because it was Chesney’s number in high school).

Chesney, who also helped with a 2011 film called “The Boys of Fall” about football players across all levels, pitched his support as co-executive producer and the idea took off. “SEC Storied” covered topics such as Herschel Walker and “The Play That Changed College Football,” a recap of the 1992 SEC Championship Game in which Spurrier and his Gators were well represented, and decided to include Spurrier’s own film in its next wave.
