Chesney Treats Grandma To First Flight
KENNY CHESNEY recently treated his grandmother to her first flight - and the whole adventure was caught on camera for the OPRAH show.
TV presenter Oprah Winfrey asked the country star if there was anything special he'd like to do prior to appearing on her show on Friday (09Apr10) - and he opted to fly his grandma to Florida, so she could join him for a meal at his favourite restaurant.
The singer/songwriter surprised his gran by showing up at her home in Knoxville, Tennessee and she agreed to overcome her flying fears and take off with her jetsetting grandson on his private plane.
Once on board, she asked Chesney, "How fast does it go?" and when he told her "about 600 miles an hour," she responded with, "Oh gosh Kenny, that's too fast. Can't you slow it down?"
The singer's mother and members of his family joined the pair on the trip to the Florida Keys.
