OFFSTAGE: Time to Revisit Kenny Chesney’s "Boys of Fall"

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

I feel that chill. I smell that fresh cut grass. Literally, I do. Every weekend when I’m
at my son’s high school football games. So every weekend, that 2010 Kenny
song “The Boys of Fall” feels brand new again.
And in the new issue of People Country, he talks about why that song still means so much to him. “I honestly believe
that I wouldn’t be where I am if I’d not played high school football,” he said. And he compares the lessons and values and
teamwork he learned back then to the way he applies himself in life now. When he first heard the Casey Beathard/David Turnbull
song, he says he was sold right away “because who could capture something that intense and that specific in a song?” The fundamentals
of football, Chesney recalls, were many: “Hard work. Hard, hard work. More work. Sweat. Aches. Get knocked down, get back
up. Show up, suit up. Give it everything you’ve got.”
