Kenny to Bring Some “Orange” to ESPN
Kenny Chesney has parlayed his passion for football into another opportunity to shine a spotlight on his beloved University of Tennessee.
In February 2011, Kenny and video director Shaun Silva released The Color Orange: The Condrege Holloway Story on ESPN. The film chronicles the life and career of the UT football player who was the first African-American starting quarterback in the Southeastern Conference. Kenny, who wore Holloway's number when he played high school football, also serves as the documentary's narrator.
Now the film will be included in ESPN's Storied documentary series, which focuses on athletes and coaches of the SEC. The Color Orange will make its debut in the series on Jan. 13.
