Your "Monday Night Musician" On MNF Next Week Is (Drumroll Please)....

Thursday, October 09, 2008


Yes folks, ESPN is going country during the Giants-Browns game this Monday night and who better to sing us through the night than the multi-platinum, Kenny Chesney! Up until now, the songs and artists had only been featured on Monday Night Countdown, but for this upcoming game, EPSN promises to play it the whole game as well. Via ESPN....

Prior to Monday's MNF matchup between the New York Giants and Cleveland Browns October 13, SportsCenter Monday Kickoff (6 p.m.) and Monday Night Countdown (7 p.m.) will include Kenny Chesney's song "I'm Alive" (featuring Dave Matthews) from his upcoming album "Lucky Old Sun" (to be released October 14). Chesney's #1 hit "Living In Fast Forward," "Got A Little Crazy," and "Wild Ride" (featuring Joe Walsh) will also be heard throughout the MNF telecast, continuing "Monday Night Musicians," an initiative introduced last season where ESPN's music department works with record companies to highlight upcoming music releases of popular performing artists within Monday Night Football games. Chesney, who has sold more than 27 million albums, has 15 #1 singles to his credit and sold more concert tickets this decade than any artist from any genre of music.
I don't mind Kenny Chesney, but I can't stand when ESPN has him on their network. The guy has been on just about every avenue that they have, and you can only hear about his love for Peyton Manning so much before you feel like you want to punch him the face. Oh well, they've been going light on the music so far this year, let's hope they continue the trend this Monday as well.

"Lucky Old Sun" means he doesn't give a rat's ass about music. He just wants your money. No talent midget...

I think I speak for everyone when I say to quote Tim Duncan, "this is retarded."

Kenny Chesney... The worst Jimmy Buffett tribute of all time.
