Kenny Chesney Rose Bowl on Saturday, July 25 - Credit: Allister AnnBeyond 53,864 Fans Rocked, Keith Jackson Presented A Brick for the Walk

Pasadena, Calif. (July 26, 2015) —  For Kenny Chesney, playing “The Granddaddy of Them All” as ABC’s legendary sportscaster Keith Jackson deemed the Rose Bowl decades ago, was a bucket list item. And when he took the stage at the iconic venue built in 1922, he took it with all the intensity of every college football team that played there on New Year’s Day, the athletes at the ’84 Summer Olympics and the various teams at the many World Cup matches that have played there.

 
“You know when you wake up and you see that sign, you’re on hallowed ground,” Chesney said. “I’ve seen so many games played there, so much history – and I understand the heart it took from every athlete who’s ever come out of those tunnels. To stand on that stage, I knew I wanted to try to honor all those folks who’ve come before us.”

Beyond delivering a scorching two-hour show that included his 27th No. 1 “Wild Child” and the freewheeling GRAMMY-nominated “American Kids” from The Big Revival to a packed house, Chesney was further inspired by Keith Jackson surprising him backstage. As Jackson presented the East Tennessean with a commemorative brick to be placed in the Brick Walk at the South Main Entrance and the first ever Rose Bowl Stadium jersey, it was an emotional moment for the songwriter/superstar.

 
“There is so much history just hearing that voice,” Chesney marveled. “Let alone seeing that face: all those games, all those plays he called. That’s the sound of me growing up! And what an honor to get to sit a bit on the bus and talk to him about everything he’s seen… even before the show started, I was having a pretty high-powered time.”
 
It’s been a big summer for The Big Revival Tour. Chesney broke his own record at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field with 55,381, Green Bay’s Lambeau Field with 53,363, Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field with 54,313 and Minneapolis’ Target Stadium for the third time with 44,152.  His intensity prompted The Dallas Morning News to write “Two parts Mick Jagger, one part Bruce Springsteen and one part Billy Graham” after his Texas/AT&T Stadium show.

His Rose Bowl set was no exception. With Reese Witherspoon, Vince Vaughn, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis on the side of the stage, Chesney played 19 songs before taking a breath – and then returned with the night’s co-headliner Jason Aldean to play four more, including spirited covers of John Mellencamp’s “Hurt So Good” and Bryan Adams’ “Summer of ’69.”

 
“Those folks had had a long day in all that heat, but man, they were so ready for us… ready to hear the music, to sing along, to make every single song matter,” Chesney said. “When I dropped out during ‘Anything But Mine,’ they sang so clear and so true, you could’ve made a record out of it – and for me, they made a memory that will last a lifetime. To play a place where football means so much, especially to an audience that live, I’ll never forget it…”
 
 With upcoming stadium shows at Denver’s Sports Authority Stadium at Mile High Aug. 8, E. Rutherford, NJ’s Met Life Stadium Aug. 15, Detroit’s Ford Field Aug. 22 and a double at Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium Aug. 28-29, the man The Wall Street Journal called “The King of the Road” will have headlined 135 stadium plays since his Washington, DC/Pittsburgh/Boston stadium run in 2005. Having taken a year to get ready for The Big Revival, it shows in the intensity of the shows, the fan and yes, the man from Tennessee.

The Hotdisc chart is compiled from DJs and industry professionals’ ratings of songs currently being promoted on the Rush Released CD. They are not airplay charts, as airplay charts cannot work in Europe because there are no terrestrial country stations. The hundreds of country programmes on air which we service are likely to play a particular song only twice at most in a three month period, therefore rendering airplay charts insignificant in Europe. It works well in America where there are plenty of non-stop country stations but it does not work here. Any Airplay Chart you may see claiming to provide this service is bogus and Hotdisc does not condone these charts at all. They are misleading at best for the reasons stated.

The Hotdisc charts are put together weekly using ratings supplied by DJs who give scores to every song on the last three months’ editions of Rush Released. The scores are averaged out per week to give an accurate guide to the songs which are being championed by the industry. The aim is to showcase the songs which the industry professionals are flagging up as quality songs. This is a very useful exercise as it is free of politics, hype and rigging and done solely on merit!

Kellie Pickler - Courtesy: Black River EntertainmentPickler Will Also Perform National Anthem at Sunday’s “Crown Royal Presents the Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard at Indianapolis Motor Speedway” Broadcast Live on NBC Sports Network

NASHVILLE, TENN. – (July 21, 2015) – Tonight, singer/songwriter Kellie Pickler will show up unexpectedly on several doorsteps with a big surprise for the homeowners when “Knock Knock Live” premieres on FOX Television at 9:00 PM/ET (8:00 PM/CT).  The Ryan Seacrest-hosted television series will feature Pickler and other co-hosts including Adrienne Bailon, Jordan “Shorty” Johnson, Chuey Martinez, Ross Mathews, and Tyler Posey, who will travel across the country and go door-to-door to surprise people who were nominated by their family and friends.
 
Later this week on Sunday, July 26, Pickler will perform the National Anthem at the “Crown Royal Presents the Jeff Kyle 400 at the Brickyard at Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” which will air live on NBC Sports Network beginning at 3:30 PM/ET (2:30 PM/CT). The NASCAR race honors Sergeant Jeff Kyle, who served eight years in the Marines and was deployed multiple times to Iraq and Africa. Pickler met Kyle’s parents earlier this year at CMA Music Festival in Nashville when they presented her with the 2015 Operation Troop Aid Chris Kyle Patriot Award for the acknowledgement for her unwavering and impassioned support and contributions to the United States Armed Forces and their families. The singer/songwriter has been a strong supporter of America’s military men and women and their families, and has performed on eight USO Tours thus far.
 
In-between work on “Knock Knock Live,” her upcoming CMT reality series “I Love Kellie Pickler,” and her home goods line in cooperation with the Opry Stores, “Selma Drye by Kellie Pickler,” the Black River Entertainment recording artist is also working on her next album.  Her first single, “Feeling Tonight,” is currently being heard on SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
 
About Kellie Pickler
 
Kellie Pickler grew up immersed in country music in the small town of Albemarle, North Carolina with the words of Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton shaping her musical footing. At the age of 19, she gained fame as a contestant on the fifth season of “American Idol.”  In 2006, she signed with 19 Recordings/BNA Records and released her debut album, Small Town Girl, which has gone on to sell more than 900,000 copies worldwide and produce three hit singles: “Red High Heels,” “I Wonder,” and “Things That Never Cross a Man’s Mind.” She followed that in 2008 with her self-titled sophomore record, featuring country radio hits “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful,” “Best Days of Your Life” (co-written with Taylor Swift and her first Top 10), and “Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You.”  Having established herself as not only a powerful vocalist but also a songwriter, Pickler released her third studio album, 100 Proof, in 2011 to huge critical acclaim. The album was named the No. 1 Country Album of The Year by Rolling Stone and was listed on “Best of 2012” lists by Washington Post, Rhapsody, AOL’s The Boot and more. In spring of 2013, Pickler partnered with dance coach Derek Hough and won the Mirror Ball Trophy on “Dancing with the Stars.” In 2013, Pickler released her fourth album, The Woman I Am, on her new label home, Black River Entertainment. She co-wrote three songs on the critically acclaimed album, including the title cut. Currently working on new music with producers Kyle Jacobs and Matt McClure, Pickler released her new single “Feeling Tonight” on June 2, 2015. She recently launched her home goods line “Selma Drye by Kellie Pickler” in cooperation with the Opry Stores (shop.opry.com). In addition, she will star on FOX-TV’s “Knock Knock Live,” airing this summer, and the upcoming CMT reality show “I Love Kellie Pickler” due to air later this year. Pickler is also an avid supporter of the U.S. military, having recently completed her eighth USO Tour in December 2014. For more information, please visit www.kelliepickler.com.
