Kenny Chesney composed & performs the theme song to ESPN’s series Rise Up.
The ESPN show, Rise Up, is a series where they go to needy high schools & give their athletic facilities a makeover.
The series debuted a pilot last fall at the McMain Secondary High School in New Orleans. This year, Rise Up is scheduled to visit Boston, Seattle, Chicago & Wellston, OH.
Immediately following the series premiere, Chesney announced via Twitter that ‘Rise Up’ was available for download at iTunes. He says he wrote the song in about two hours after watching an episode based in New Orleans.
