Chesney was honored as "Tennessean of the Year" by the Tennessee
Sports Hall of Fame this past Friday, February 11. He was honored not
only for his role as a producer on the inspiring, motivational ESPN football
documentary "Boys of Fall," but also for his role as mentor of young
adults through his contribution of thousands of DVD's to high schools across
the country. As Bill Emendorfer, President of the Tennessee Sports
Hall of Fame says, the award "honors an individual or organization that
has made significant contributions to our society through sports or other
methods, demonstrating strong character and high profile leadership."
Chesney has displayed high profile leadership throughout his career, not
only to young adults through 'Boys of Fall,' but also to his peers in the
country music world.
