The company also produced the ABC Television specials "Kenny Chesney: Somewhere in the Sun," and "CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock." The company also directed and produced a promotional piece for "That '70s Show," which included the recreation of a live KISS concert and featured KISS performing "Rock and Roll All Nite."
