Kenny Chesney Writes Theme Song for New Show on ESPN.
Kenny Chesney is extending his talents to television theme-song writing! He has recently been tapped to write an original theme for the new ESPN program titled “Rise Up“. The show is a reality type program which will showcase schools across the country in need. The goal will be to provide the athletic departments of these schools with much needed make-overs.
Chesney initially told the show’s executive producer Joan Lynch that writing the theme song was the hardest thing he had done. Yet, after watching one episode featuring a school in New Orleans, he managed to write the song in just two hours! Clearly, Chesney has found the show inspiring, and hopefully fans will as well.
“Rise Up” will premiere on Tuesday, September 13th at 7pm (ET) on ESPN.
