Kenny Chesney Pays Tribute to America’s Pastime
Kenny Chesney is doing some All-American traveling this week. Tuesday, he was in New York to attend the All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium. But it was Wednesday in Washington, D.C. when he paid tribute to baseball by singing 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame' at the White House. Chesney was in our nation's capital for a special event on the White House lawn, commemorating the song's 100th anniversary. Standing beside President Bush, he sang at the seventh inning stretch of one of three tee ball games, played by kids from all 50 states. It was a fitting event for the country superstar, who is a huge baseball fan.
"Deep down, I would love to play second base for the Red Sox," he tells PEOPLE magazine. "When I was little, I wanted to be Pete Rose."
Chesney's next stop is Philadelphia -- the home of the Liberty Bell and U.S. Constitution -- as his Poets & Pirates Tour stops at the city's Lincoln Financial Field.
