Will Kenny Play The Super Bowl?

| February 4, 2012

Every year, a top star performs at the Super Bowl Halftime show.  In the past, we’ve seen Bruce Springsteen, The Who, The Black-Eyed Peas, The Rolling Stones, and Michael Jackson.  In 2012, it’s Madonna.  How about Kenny Chesney?  Country Countdown USA host Lon Helton put the question to Kenny himself as they sat in the new Meadowlands Stadium: “That’s come up a time or two, and I’m not gonna say I wouldn’t do it, but I’m not gonna do it in a place they think country music should be.  Like last year, the Super Bowl was in Dallas, so we’re gonna have a country artist, and I’m like I’m sorry, but I’m not gonna be that cliche about it.  Do it here!  So who knows.  One day, maybe, maybe not.  But it’s not something I have to do, but I’d like to do it.”

Lon’s next question: I hear you have something blockbuster planned for 2012? “You may be right! I may be crazy.”

Will you have a new album in 2012? Not sure.  Depends on this fall, and how far we get.  There’s gonna be an album at some point.  I’ve got a few songs I really love and fit me.  For me, I gotta find songs that push me and push the audience, but still be true to who I am.  That’s a fine line for me, and do something I haven;t done before.  So I’ve got all that in mind when I do that.”
