Family hopes country singer will dedicate part of concert to their lost son

    A family in the Northeast is hoping country singer Kenny Chesney will honor his biggest fan. Kenny Kline, 18, died Saturday in a motorcycle accident. He had plans to attend Chesney’s Philadelphia concert this summer.

    After donating his organs, NBC10 reports Kline’s family and friends launched a Facebook group asking Chesney to dedicate his “Boys of Fall” song to Kline during the concert.

    Kline, a former Northeast High School football player, had a tattoo of Chesney’s football-celebrating song, and was looking forward to the June concert. Nearly 7,000 people have “liked” the group, which has support from local country station program director Shelly Easton. The family is asking Chesney to play the song at the concert and dedicate it to Kline.
