Chesney Performs at RFK Remembrance Ceremony

A remembrance was held at Arlington National Cemetery on Wednesday to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy and Kenny Chesney attended and performed “This Land is Your Land.” (VIDEO below)

Of all who delivered the words of Robert Kennedy at Arlington cemetery on Wednesday, 50 years after his assassination, surely none felt them as intimately as John Lewis.

He read from the speech – an unscripted plea for love, wisdom, justice and compassion for black and white – that he personally witnessed Kennedy give in Indianapolis on the night that Martin Luther King was shot.

“It was very, very moving,” he told the Guardian. “From time to time you have what I call an executive session with yourself. I said to myself that evening: ‘We still have Bobby.’ Two months later, he was gone.”

Now a Democratic congressman from Georgia, Lewis was among readers and speakers including former president Bill Clinton, the House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, and 18-year-old gun safety campaigner Emma González at the hour-long memorial service in bright sunshine. Country singer Kenny Chesney sang This Land Is Your Land and the American University Gospel Choir performed The Battle Hymn of the Republic, a favourite of Kennedy’s.

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.”

We need a place where music is treated with real reverence and respect, a place that’s got a human element, a human touch […] great songs recommended to me by people who live it …

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.
