Kenny Chesney recently produced his documentary "Boys of Fall" for ESPN and he will continue his relationship with ESPN as producer of a one-hour special on Condredge Holloway (above) for their year-long, "Year of The Quarterback" initiative.

The documentary will air Feb. 20 at 8:00 pm Eastern time on ESPN. Check local listings for MT.

From the press release: Chesney, who wore Holloway's jersey number when he played high school football, idolized the University of Tennessee quarterback and was thrilled to produce the documentary. "Condredge has meant so much to so many and is a very important figure in my life and to the history of College Football," says Chesney. " I'm excited, with the help of Shaun Silva, to tell his story, to show his journey, and to help show the world just how influential he was to how the game is played today and how many doors he opened for so many athletes that have followed in his footsteps," Chesney continued. Holloway was the first African-American to start at Quarterback in the Southeastern Conference. Year of The Quarterback will delve into the topic to find a deeper understanding of one of sports' most high-profile positions. We'll examine the leadership qualities, mental toughness, as well as issues of race and recruitment from the "blue chip" high school recruit, to the Heisman hopeful, to the NFL legend. It will tell the story of the quarterback both on and off the field, presented across a range of content formats including documentaries, vignettes and series, and will be integrated into ESPN's football studio shows over the year: NFL Countdown, NFL Live, College GameDay, college football bowl coverage as well as BCS and Super Bowl programming, and NFL Combine and Draft coverage.
