Kenny Chesney welcomed CBS camera crews to join him when he visited the Boston Medical Center to meet some beneficiaries of his Spread the Love Fund. The announcement was made on Chesney’s website on Oct. 30, 2013 that the “Sunday Morning” special feature will air on CBS Nov. 3, 2013.
The special segment followed Chesney as he wrapped up his 2013 “No Shoes Nation Tour” and took the trip to the Boston Medical Center to capture the moment when Chesney came face to face with the people his Spread the Love Fund was directly affecting. The fund supports ongoing care for amputee victims from the Boston Marathon bombing.
Chesney said “Watching what happened on tv, as the entire nation did, really threw me” adding “But meeting these amazing people who’re putting their lives together, hearing their stories and seeing how they approach getting their lives back… I was moved beyond words.”
The upcoming special is the second time Chesney has been featured on “Sunday Morning.” Chesney said “I knew when they decided to come back, they weren’t looking for a ride on the gator.”
Chesney added “I’ve grown a lot as an artist, as a person since that first one – and I think that maybe intrigued them. A lot of soul searching goes into what we do, and what we’re doing in Boston in terms of the city, the fans and the Fund, especially.”
