Kenny Chesney Is Picking? What?



By FITSNews  ||  Country music star Kenny Chesney will be the “guest picker” when ESPN’s College GameDay program comes to the University of South Carolina this weekend.

Wait … isn’t Chesney a University of Tennessee fan?

Um, yes.  Although as our intrepid columnist Liz Gunn noted, he co-produced a recent documentary about Gamecock head football coach Steve Spurrier.

Still … does that mean Chesney should have been given this coveted spot?

Last time ESPN’s GameDay rolled into town, pop-turned-country singer Darius Rucker was the “guest picker” – i.e. the celebrity who joins analysts Chris Fowler, Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard in predicting who will win the day’s college football games.

Like Rucker, Chesney will also perform during his appearance on the University of South Carolina’s historic Horseshoe campus.  Two years ago, Chesney appeared on GameDay in Knoxville, Tennessee prior to the Volunteers game against Florida.

College GameDay airs at 9:00 a.m. EDT on ESPN.  This is the show’s seventh appearance in Columbia.
