Kenny Introduces Peyton Manning to His New Denver Fans
New Broncos quarterback and the Broncos head coach come onto the stage before “Boys of Fall.”
It was quite an emotional rollercoaster at the Kenny Chesney/Tim McGraw show Sunday night (July 22) in Denver's Mile High Stadium.
That's where NFL superstar Peyton Manning will play his first season as Broncos quarterback this fall. And leave it to Peyton's longtime friend Kenny Chesney to introduce Peyton to his new Denver fans.
Kenny and Peyton know each other from Peyton's days at the University of Tennessee.
Before "Boys of Fall," Kenny brought Peyton and Broncos coach John Fox onto the stage, and a fan captured that moment on video.
Kenny also took some time to address the tragic movie-theater shooting that happened in nearby Aurora, Colo., just a few days before.
"Me and my road family are just like the rest of the nation, hurting with this city tonight," Kenny said before singing "I Go Back."
"We love you, and we're with you, and if you guys will let us, we want to let music start to heal this town just a little bit tonight.”
