Kenny Chesney Completes Work on High School Football Documentary

Kenny Chesney has completed work on a film documentary, The Boys of Fall, dealing with the power and passion of high school football. To create the project, Chesney drew upon his friendships with NFL greats Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Troy Aikman and John Madden and several NFL, college and high school coaches. “I have the ability to have some pretty amazing conversations with some pretty big coaches … some pretty amazing players,” he said. Chesney, who was wide receiver for the Gibbs High School football team in Corryton, Tenn., has been working on the documentary for approximately a year. “Everyone I approached, when they understood we were looking for the soul of the game as it’s played in high school, not only were they willing to talk to us, they’d pick up the phone and send us to people they thought we needed to talk to.”
