Kenny Chesney To Be College GameDay Celebrity Guest Picker, Will Also Perform On SC's Campus

ESPN's College GameDay has had a few interesting selections for its celebrity guest pickers this year - namely "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and the Oregon Duck. This weekend, they'll be going back to an old favorite - country music star Kenny Chesney. South Carolina reported Wednesday that Chesney will serve two roles this Saturday - one as celebrity guest picker, the other as a performer at the Horseshoe on campus.

The school also noted that Chesney co-produced the documentary "The Believer" about Spurrier for The SEC Network earlier this year.

Chesney is a noted Tennessee fan, but he's also great friends with Spurrier, as South Carolina notes. He's a very appropriate selection.
