Kenny Chesney Says ‘No’ to Reality Television
Kenny Chesney, who’s already said ‘No’ to Twitter, has no desire to be a part of another pop culture craze. The singer recently dismissed any notion of associating himself with a reality television show or a singing competition a la Blake Shelton.
“Uh, no — not really,” Chesney tells Taste of Country when asked if he’d consider it. “I don’t think I’d be too good at judging a talent contest or mentoring anyone.”
“I haven’t watched a lot of those shows in the first place,” admits the busy singer. “It’s up to anybody to find their own path and realize their dream anyway they want to do it. I’m not condoning it at all, but I don’t see myself being a part of anything like that really.”
Fans really hoping to catch Chesney on the small screen can tune in to ESPN for the singer’s hysterical new commercial for the sports network. The ESPN spot shows the ‘Come Over’ singer attempting to ignore Steve Levy as the popular sportscaster tries to sit with him at the cafeteria’s “cool table.”
Chesney is currently preparing for the release of ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl,’ in stores tomorrow (June 19). The 12-song collection, which features the Tim McGraw duet ‘Feel Just Like a Rockstar’ and current chart-climber ‘Come Over,’ is the first to be released under Chesney’s Blue Chair/Columbia co-venture with longtime Sony Nashville label home.
