Chesney Takes Break From Tour For Baseball

Posted by Cliff Chartrand on 07/17/2008

Kenny Chesney has made his love for sports no secret, and he proved that passion yet again by participating in a pair of baseball-related events over the past couple days.
After performing in front of over 40,000 fans at Turner Field, home of Major League Baseball’s Atlanta Braves, the Country Music star traveled to New York City on Tuesday for the MLB All Star Game at Yankee Stadium.
The Tennessee native followed that up by going to the White House to sing “The National Anthem” for the Baseball Hall of Fame T-Ball Game. Chesney also performed during the dinner that followed the game.
Kenny’s current single “Better As A Memory” has spent the past two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Country singles chart, giving him 15 chart-toppers during his career and the longest run of consecutive Top 10 Country singles this century.
