Kenny Chesney’s Football Documentary Featuring Favre, Manning,
Madden And More Premieres August 29 On ESPN
This Sunday, August 29 at 2pm EDT, Kenny Chesney’s 60-minute documentary on high school football “Boys of Fall” will premiere on ESPN.

“Making this film had been an incredible journey for me and everyone involved,” says Chesney. “ Interviewing the men in this film has made me look at my own life in a different way.  I hope people out there get as much out of watching this film as I did making it!”

"'Boys of Fall' captures the essence of what makes playing football so special.  In high school football and beyond, it's a life experience as much as it is a sports experience,” says John Dahl, executive producer, ESPN Films. “ The passion Kenny has for football comes through clearly in this documentary. We're thrilled to have collaborated with him on it."

Shooting began in fall 2009 as Chesney compiled football interviews and footage for the video for his new single "The Boys of Fall," from the new album ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey’ out September 28 on BNA Records.  After shooting footage of friend and New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton at his high school alma mater, Chesney decided to expand the video into a full documentary film.  Over the next several months, he shot select high school games as well as interviews with stars such as Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, John Madden, Tony Dungy, Bill Parcells, Nick Saban, Mack Brown, Jim Tressel and Bobby Bowden.

While there is tremendous star power in the film, the focus is on the high school and to a lesser degree, college football experiences, with emphasis not on the stars, but on those who don't make it big.  It depicts how for those who do not go on to long, storied careers in the NFL, like high school wide receiver Chesney, the lessons learned on the field help to shape who they are today.

After an introduction that includes Payton speaking to his old high school team in the locker room before a big game, Chesney's film moves on to larger themes that have their own sections - Boys of Influence, Boys of Tradition, Boys of Passion, Boys of Sacrifice, Boys of Trust and Boys of Tomorrow. Each of these themes that sets apart football from any other sport is explored.

They call her..The Bare Naked Bandit..29 yr Old Lee Grace Doherty

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding.
