ESPN will debut the video for award-winning country music star Kenny Chesney’s newest song Boys of Fall Monday, Aug. 2. SportsCenter will air a more than four minute video exclusively at the conclusion of the 11 a.m. ET and 2 p.m. editions (approximately 55 minutes past each hour). The original eight minute version of the video created by Chesney will be available on ESPN.com and ESPNRise.com through the week beginning Aug. 2.
Boys of Fall is the debut single from Chesney’s upcoming album, Hemingway’s Whiskey, scheduled to be released on Sept. 28. The song captures the spirit of playing and being a fan of football, specifically the moments, details, heart and lessons the game embodies. The video features a montage of Chesney singing the song with high school, college and NFL football game highlights, and various fan, coach’s speeches and football-related community shots.
After two weeks of radio airplay, The Boys of Fall is already a Top 15 hit at country radio, ranking among the fastest-rising singles of Chesney’s career.
Kenny Chesney, the current and four-time Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year and four-consecutive Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, is the only concert act in any genre to sell over a million tickets in North America each of the past seven years. The songwriter from Luttrell, Tennessee is known for his sense of what it means to come of age in the 21st century and a laidback vibe that defines what it means to “chill out/play hard/work hard.”
