Kenny Tosses a Football Song to Radio


Coming from the country star who played the New Orleans Saints' post-Super Bowl win bash—a song about football.

But the song—“Boys of Fall”—takes the focus off the NFL and onto the Friday night lights of high school football.

Kenny Chesney remembers the first time he heard the song, written by Casey Beathard and Dave Turnbull.

“I knew—as maybe only someone who has felt that thrill of rushing out onto the field on a cold Friday night can—that was exactly how it is,” Kenny said in a statement. “And it also gives you a sense of why playing football in high school is such a powerful thing for anyone who does it.”

And Kenny did it: He was the wide receiver for the Gibbs H.S. Eagles in East Tennessee in the ‘80s.

“Boys of Fall” will be on Kenny’s album Hemingway’s Whiskey, coming out Sept. 28.
