Kenny Chesney Maintained Low Profile As Awarded ‘Tennessean Of The Year’

Kenny Chesney was honored as Tennessean of the Year last night in Nashville, TN by the Tennessean Sports Hall of Fame.  Being named Tennessean of the Year is a great honor and as described by President of the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame, Bill Emendorfer: “Tennessean of the Year, first awarded by the Hall of Fame in 1982, honors an individual or organization that has made significant contributions to our society through sports or other methods, demonstrating strong character and high profile leadership.”
Chesney maintained a low profile during the evening’s event last night.  The Tennessean reports that Kenny slipped in after the event started and kept his acceptance speech short.  Rather than taking his seat at the head table, Kenny sat with former Vols quarterback Condredge Holloway, who attended the event as a guest.

“Kenny was very appreciative of the honor, but he did not want to take the limelight away from any of our inductee honorees. He said he just wanted to be one in the crowd.”  said Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame executive director Ryland Hoskins.
