Country star Kenny Chesney is shaping up to work out with American football team the New Orleans Saints on Friday (17Aug07). The Rocky Mountain Way singer, who is friends with Saints coach Sean Payton, played a concert at the Riverside Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio on Thursday (16Aug07). And, as the New Orleans Saints prepare for their pre-season game against the Cincinnati Bengals, American football fan Chesney agreed to train with the buff sportsmen to boost morale. He explains, "They wanna see if I can make some kind of contribution. They realised they were gonna be up there when I was playing Cincinnati, and they wanted to make it work. "Turns out a lot of the guys on the team were fans, and Sean said they really wanted to do it."
