Kenny Chesney Postponed Profile This Weekend On CBS “Sunday Morning”
When Kenny Chesney was first profiled on the CBS show “Sunday Morning” his career was really taking off. Now, some 8 years later, Kenny will again be featured on the popular news magazine show this weekend but with a much different take. The segment was originally scheduled to air on September 8 but was bumped due to more pressing current events.
A release on Kenny’s website says this profile will be quite different from the first one.
“I’ve grown a lot as an artist, as a person – and I think that was something that maybe intrigued them. A lot of soul searching goes into what we do, and I think that interested them as much as anything.”
While the episode will feature clips from his Foxboro Stadium shows it will also show Kenny’s serious side as he visits Boston Medical Center, which partners with him for the Spread the Love Fund and meets with several of the fund’s beneficiaries.
“Watching what happened on tv, which the entire nation did, really threw me,” Chesney says. “But to see these amazing people who’re putting their lives back together, to hear their stories and see the way they approach getting their lives back… I was, well, moved beyond words.”
“Sunday Morning” airs locally on WTVH, Syracuse, Sunday morning at 9. Be advised, with the government shutdown still in effect there is still the possibility that the profile may be postponed again.
Kenny Chesney told The Hollywood Reporter he’s taking 2014 off. If your first thought was, wait he just took a year off. That was three years ago, when took off 2010.
