Kenny Chesney w Seattle Seahawks

Kenny Chesney Works Out w Seattle Seahawks; Day at Training Camp Yields Video!

Kenny Chesney doesn’t just play NFL Stadiums, the man recently
deemed “The King of the Road” by The Wall Street Journal is also known
to play with the NFL teams as he makes his way across the nation. In
preparation for his Saturday, June 1 show at the CenturyLink Field,
Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll invited the 4-time Country Music Association
and 4-consecutive Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year to
join the team for their Friday practice.

“I met Pete a couple years ago at our show at the
Tacomadome,” Chesney says of the invitation. “We kept in touch, and when
we were coming he asked me if I’d like to work out with the team. I
didn’t have to think about it… The answer was, ‘Yes!’”

So Chesney reported for afternoon practice at Virginia
Mason Athletic Facility in nearby Renton, Washington for several hours
of offensive drills. Beyond being the second largest NFL training
facility, Chesney found himself in the heat of the pre-season
preparation.

“To feel the intensity of an NFL training camp,” Chesney
says of the workout, “and to be out there running those drills… You get a
real sense of how much focus and heart goes into preparing to do what
they’re going to do all season. Sports is such a big part of my life,
it’s a huge rush to be out on the field with such world class athletes.”

Working with wide receivers Percy Harvin and Simeon Rice,
Chesney was running drills and catching passes from last year’s NFL
Pepsi Rookie of the Year Russell Wilson, who also was the Big Ten
Quarterback of the Year in his final year of college play.

“You know when you’ve caught a pass from Russell Wilson,”
Chesney says with a laugh. “It’s not like when we play football
backstage… It’s pretty serious. And I caught a few of’em, too. So it was
a really good day!”

Several of the players have expressed interest in seeing
Chesney do what he does best at the place they play every week. No word
as to whether they’re going to get up and sing, but they will absolutely
be a part of the festivities as the No Shoes Nation Tour continues its
trek across America, including 19 stadiums, plus amphitheatres and
arenas.

Regardless of whether the players take the stage,
they’ve already collaborated on a whole other kind of music video for
“Living in Fast Forward,” which captures the practice highlights in all
its glory. Click here to see it: http://www.seahawks.com/videos-photos/videos/Kenny-Chensey-at-Seahawks-P…

Meanwhile, Life On A Rock – Chesney’s 7th all-genre Top
200 Album debut — has been called “a bold move” by The Washington Post,
“a quieter more contemplative meditation on sand sea” by The Chicago
Tribune and the Associated Press offered, “The result is as appealing as
it is surprising…”
