Kenny Chesney date Katie Couric

Kenny Chesney Joins “Katie Couric” May 13 Almost Entire Show Devoted to Life On A Rock, Spread the Love Fund

There are few people in the world as driven as Kenny Chesney, who
released Life On A Rock and launched Blue Chair Bay Rum last week,
while knee deep in his No Shoes Nation 2013 Tour that includes 19 NFL
Stadiums. But in the takes-one-to-know-one department journalist/talk
show host/activist/mother of two, Katie Couric sought her own level of
accomplishment when she spent almost the entire show catching up with
her friend and fellow make-it-happener, due to air May 13th.

“Katie is so smart, and so good,” Chesney says of
the woman whose talk show received multiple Emmy nominations in its
first season. “When you talk to her, you can tell she doesn’t just
understand, she gets it… and that makes you want to really talk to her.
That kind of interviewing is rare, and I’m so glad we were able to make
it happen.”

The show, which also features two segments of First
Responders in the Boston Marathon Bombing and a mother/daughter who were
both injured, focuses on Chesney’s Spread The Love Fund, earmarked to
help the injured get prosthetics and related care, the inspiration
behind his deeply reflective Life On A Rock, taste-testing Blue Chair
Bay Rum and discussing work ethic, achievement and the things that make
life matter.

“Meeting the firemen and policemen, EMTs and the
doctor who was running the Marathon and broke through the police
barricade to treat the injured,” the songwriter says, “was really a
profound perspective giver. You look at those people, who didn’t think
about their own safety, but helping others – and you realize what a hero
really is!”

He also performed a stripped down version of Rock’s
“Spread The Love” with guitarists Kenny Greenberg and Clayton Mitchell,
the song the Wailers had recorded in Jamaica they asked Chesney to write
lyrics for. Chesney’s portion of the money from all downloads of
“Spread The Love” will go to the Spread the Love Fund.

“Katie is so generous to let us come on her show,”
Chesney continues. “Not just to talk about life and music, but to talk
about the Spread the Love Fund. She knows she can make a difference, and
that’s just the kind of person she is.”

Meanwhile, Chesney’s No Shoes Nation Tour hits
Dallas May 11 at Cowboys Stadium. With a full slate of dates, through
August 23-24’s closing stand at Foxboro, MA’s Gillette Stadium, the man
with 24 #1s is again bringing the summer alive across the nation.

The Boston Globe raved about his latest, “Chesney
returns to that reflective, often acoustic place for Life On A Rock, and
again hits a high-water mark,” while The Chicago Tribune opined, “the
country superstar turns down the volume to offer a quieter and more
contemplative meditation on sand and sea” and Billboard proclaimed,
“Kenny Chesney’s Life On A Rock is surely the most personal work he’s
ever done, and time will likely prove it to be among his best-loved by
