Kenny Chesney paid tribute to legendary Pro Hall of Fame coach and broadcaster John Madden, who passed away Tuesday morning at the age of 85.
“So long to my good fiend [sic] John Madden. He was such a big part of the Boys of Fall film. We became friends after his interview, and he’ll be missed by everyone that loves the game of football,” the country music icon wrote on Instagram.
He added, “Thank you, John, for your time and for listening to my song and bringing so many people together on a Sunday afternoon. Rest In Peace, my friend.”
The post was accompanied by two photos of Chesney with Madden, taken during the making of Chesney’s high-school football documentary Boys of Fall.
Chesney, who is a football fan, sought help from Madden while producing the film in 2011.
One of the most successful football coaches and one of the most influential NFL announcers, Madden was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
