Kenny Chesney Hits “The Tonight Show” April 15th
Couch Time & Offers A Special Performance for “Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3D”
“Ain’t Back Yet” Top 10 – Available on Greatest Hits II

     Burbank, CA: Only Kenny Chesney would take a year off and make a 3D film that captures the intensity of his stadium shows while offering behind the scenes and archival moments that illustrate how his world as evolved into the million-tickets-sold-each-summer-for-eight-consecutive years, as well as write the preface to ESPN's Mike & Mike in the Mornings' Rules for Sports + Life,  record “Ain't Back Yet,” the end theme for “Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3D” that's the fastest moving single in the Country Top 10 and focus on what will be his first true studio album in almost four years. So the high-energy singer/songwriter - who hardly takes a breath, let alone a break - will have plenty to talk about when he sits down on the couch with Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” April 15th.

     “It's sorta strange to be going on 'The Tonight Show' with a movie coming out,” says the man whose film will open for a limited time April 21 at almost a 1000 3D theatres across the country. “It's very different, the idea of showing clips and talking about the experience of making this film… but it's something we' re all - me, the band, Joe Thomas the director, all the guys who worked on it - are really proud of, and it's definitely getting me out of my comfort zone.”

     Beyond the taste of Chesney's concert and beyond film - which was captured live in the major stadiums of  Boston, Seattle, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis - Chesney will of course treat his fans to a performance, because “I can't imagine there and not playing something.” Fans used to the whole band, horns and Drummy Zeb treatment, are in for a real treat as Chesney goes it alone with just his acoustic guitar on the late night talker.

     “I think cause the film is so big and so wild and so… well, truly like I've never seen it before,” Chesney says, “the only way to give people a sense of how different “Summer in 3D” is would be to perform for them in a way that's not like they're used to seeing me. So this will be maybe my most intimate performance ever on television, just like the movie is the most in your face, in the Goodyear Blimp, in the Sand Bar, on the stage, almost under my hat we could make it. Consider the contrasts - and enjoy both phases.”

     After his appearance on “The Tonight Show,” Chesney - who has won 4-consecutive Academy of Country Music and 4 Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year awards - will be heading to Vegas, where he is again nominated for Entertainer, Top Male Vocalist and Vocal Event for “I'm Alive” with good friend Dave Matthews at this year's Academy of Country Music Awards, telecast live from the MGM Grand on April 18th on CBS.

     With “Aint Back Yet” in the Top 10, an appearance on good friends Mike & Mike in the Morning's ESPN show April 7th and a very compelling “Oprah” on April 9th, the man who's been holed up in the studio working on his fall 2010 release is fixing to be out and about. As “Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3D,” you can find him anywhere  -- starting April 21, wherever 3D movies are shown.
