KENNY HEADS TO ABC FOR SPECIAL

Add Kenny Chesney to the growing list of country stars who've earned their own network television special. Kenny's one-hour show will combine footage from his concerts with behind-the-scenes glimpses into his private life on his beloved islands. "Kenny Chesney: Somewhere in the Sun" will air Wednesday, November 23, 8 p.m. Eastern on ABC. "The folks at ABC bring such great big picture thinking to this," said Kenny. "They're looking at a way to bring my fans into our world-even more than they already have been, and they understand the role music plays in that relationship. It's a strange balance, really, the idea of the music coming from such a private place then it becoming something that's big enough to rock a stadium."

The special will include Kenny's hits, "When The Sun Goes Down," "There Goes My Life," "Old Blue Chair," "Young" and many others. Some of Kenny's fellow country music stars and close friends (to be announced) will also make appearances in the special.
