Kenny Chesney Talks Apple Music in New Ad on 'Good Morning America' [WATCH]
Kenny Chesney is the most recent in a string of celebrity endorsers of Apple Music and appeared on Good Morning America to talk about his support of the streaming service. His ad for Apple Music first appeared in November, but it was just yesterday aired on Good Morning America. Chesney described how well he can connect with fans through Apple Music and that, "The more music we have in our life, the better everything is."
"The fact that I can take my fans by the hand and drag them along with me is pretty exciting," Chesney said on camera. "Look, I love music and my fans love music, and we can share that together."
He further said, "Somewhere along the way, we forgot how much music really matters. So we need a place where music is treated with real reverence and respect. A place that's got a human element, a human touch. Music it's the last real thing we got. So we need all the songs we want... great songs recommended by people who live it."
There was also a short clip of Apple Music's head of content, Larry Jackson, who gave some thoughts on Chesney's involvement, saying, "Kenny Chesney is an institution. I'm just happy he liked the idea and that he trusted in us. It was so unique and special to him... it was incredible. I love 'em."
Chesney isn't the only vocal supporter of Apple Music. Other musicians who love the streaming service include Mary J. Blige, Stevie Wonder, Leon Bridges and Pharrell.
Chesney also recently announced that he would be on tour this summer, performing with opening acts Miranda Lambert, Sam Hunt, and Old Dominion. The summertime North American tour will be called Spread The Love, which will begin on April 23 at the Jordan-Hare Stadium in Alabama and will finish up in Foxborough, Massachusetts at the Gillette Stadium on Aug. 27.
Before announcing Spread The Love, Chesney had recently finished up his long Big Revival tour in August. While Big Revival was wildly successful, Spread The Love is forecasted to be as equally or even more lucrative for the country superstar.
