Tinsley’s tennis tunes
As the promos for Wimbledon start up on ESPN2 in June, watch and listen closely; the theme music for this year's tournament is composed by none other than DMB fiddler and tennis aficionado Boyd Tinsley. According to a press release, ESPN coordinating producer Bill Bonnell approached Tinsley with the request. "When we heard Boyd was a tennis enthusiast, we thought this could be the perfect opportunity to work with someone of Boyd's stature and musicianship," he reportedly said. Tinsley, who launched the local Boyd Tinsley $50,000 Women's Tennis Tournament in 2003, will appear in the promos performing his composition on Wimbledon's famed Centre Court. Wimbledon starts June 25.
