Chesney On “Oprah;” Grascals Media Stops

Kenny Chesney with Oprah in 2009.

Kenny Chesney is heading to Chicago on Saturday, March 27, to tape an episode of Oprah that is set to air April 9. He will give the superstar host a sneak peak of his Summer in 3-D movie which arrives in theatres on April 21. The 3-D flick captures five of Chesney’s dozen NFL stadium shows from last year’s tour. Chesney also took a field team from Oprah with him to the Florida Keys to document a special afternoon.

The theme from Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D, is his new single, “Aint Back Yet.” In other Chesney news, he wrote the forward for the new book from ESPN hosts Mike & Mike, Rules for Sports & Life.

Two-time International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainers of the Year The Grascals are scheduled for a slew of national appearances to promote their album, The Famous Lefty Flynn’s, due out March 30.

The band’s brand of March Madness kicked off last week with a stop at the GAC studios to perform new single, “The Last Train To Clarksville”—yes, it’s The Monkees’ remake—for the network’s On The Streets program. The show airs today (3/23) at 12 and 8 p.m. CT and again tomorrow.

Fans of Hazel Smith’s entertaining show CMT’s Southern Fried Flicks will find The Grascals heating up her kitchen on Saturday, April 24.

The band will also visit SiriusXM Radio, RFD-TV’s Larry’s Country Diner and National Public Radio’s Mountain Stage.

Next month, The Grascals join Hank Williams Jr., Jamey Johnson and Eric Church on Williams’ Rowdy Friends Tour.
