Will Garth and Trisha Sell Their Tulsa Mansion



We don’t know if they’ll sell their 18,000-sq-ft mansion near Tulsa yet but right now Garth and Trisha are house hunting in Nashville which to me is kinda odd cause they already own a 6,000-sq-ft house with 300 acres in Goodlettsville, just 12 miles from town. Their place is recognizable by the train station-sized warehouse with a giant lower case “g” on its side.

Kenny Chesney Directs Football Documentary This Fall



Kenny Chesney will co-direct a football documentary for ESPN, ‘The Believer’ about South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier. It airs on the SEC Network Aug 27.

Steve Spurrier will take his turn in ESPN and the SEC Network’s “SEC Storied” series at 8 p.m. on Aug. 27 in a documentary titled, “The Believer.” The film covers Spurrier’s career as a player and coach, featuring interviews with his former players and his family, and addresses why and how Spurrier became Spurrier.

“It was a documentary they wanted to put together,” Spurrier said on Tuesday at SEC Media Days. “They spent a lot of time with my family, wife, kids, grandkids and so forth, and a lot of former players. So, hopefully, it will turn out OK.”

The trailer was released on Wednesday, a 90-second burst of Spurrier playing and coaching at Florida, Duke and South Carolina. The visor-tossing, the grin and the trophies are all well represented.

ESPN and the SEC had been discussing a Spurrier film, and once ESPN’s acclaimed “30 For 30” series began, it gained traction. A country music star provided an assist.

“There had been some talk of doing a Spurrier documentary, and when Kenny got involved, it kind of just fell together,” said Andy Billman, a producer of ESPN Films.

Kenny Chesney and Spurrier have been friends since 2007, when Chesney was performing at Colonial Life Arena and invited Spurrier on stage. Chesney, a football fan and longtime supporter of Tennessee, received a No. 7 USC jersey from Spurrier when Chesney played Williams-Brice Stadium in 2013 (No. 7 not for Jadeveon Clowney, but because it was Chesney’s number in high school).

Chesney, who also helped with a 2011 film called “The Boys of Fall” about football players across all levels, pitched his support as co-executive producer and the idea took off. “SEC Storied” covered topics such as Herschel Walker and “The Play That Changed College Football,” a recap of the 1992 SEC Championship Game in which Spurrier and his Gators were well represented, and decided to include Spurrier’s own film in its next wave.

Garth Set to Become Best Selling Artist of all Time



When Garth starts selling his music digitally, maybe even as early as this week, he’ll still set records even tho he’s not using iTunes. A half a million downloads of his 18-disc catalog will blow him past Elvis so he'll likely become the best-selling solo act in history. Then he’ll take on The Beatles; he’s at 134 million in sales, they’re at 177 million. If he takes them, Garth will become the best selling artist of all time! I hear his new single’s out Monday.
