Kenny Continues His Springsteen Love on Fallon’s Show

East Tennessee boy has long admired the Jersey rocker.

Tuesday night (Feb. 28), Kenny Chesney made his first-ever appearance on Jimmy Fallon's late-night talk show—and Kenny didn't even play one of his own hits.

Instead, Kenny paid tribute to his rock 'n' roll hero, Bruce Springsteen, whose new album comes out next week (March 6). Kenny sang Bruce's 1985 hit "I'm on Fire."

That move comes as no surprise to Kenny's longtime fans—Chesney once recorded Bruce's "One Step Up," which prompted Bruce to send a handwritten note saying he liked the cover and liked the care that Kenny took in recording it. And Kenny has been to several Springsteen shows, even after becoming a superstar himself.

Bruce himself appeared on Jimmy Fallon's show Monday (Feb. 27) and he'll be back on Friday (March 2).
