Kenny Chesney Documentary On ESPN Sunday
If you're a Kenny Chesney fan you'll love this. If you're a sports fan you'll love this. If you're a Kenny Chesney/sports fan then you can't afford to miss this!
Kenny Chesney attended the premiere of his new football documentary, The Color Orange: The Condredge Holloway Story on Wednesday in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The film, which Kenny produced and directed, tells the story of one of Kenny's heroes, Condredge Holloway. Holloway would become the Tennessee Volunteers', and the Southeastern Conference's first African-American starting quarterback in 1972.
This is a true labor of love for Kenny, a former high school athlete. Last year, Kenny produced his football documentary for ESPN called The Boys Of Fall, which was patterned after his number one hit, The Boys Of Fall. Kenny was also surprised that a story of this significance took so long to be told. According to Kenny,"Well, the fact that it hadn't been told before it was something that I couldn't believe. Being such a figure that he was and broke such a racial barrier and nobody had recognized it. Anytime you do something first, there's some adversity that comes along with that and you pay a price for a lot of other people. And Condredge handled that with a lot of grace and style and with such a positive attitude that it was inspiring for me."
The Color Orange: The Condredge Holloway Story will air on ESPN on Sunday, February 20th at 8 PM EST.
