Kenneth Arnold “Kenny” Chesney is a multi-awarded country music singer and songwriter, known for hits like The Boys of Fall and Out Last Night which both topped Hot Country Songs charts. This is Chesney’s 17th stadium tour and his popularity has never diminished over the years.
Born in Knoxville, Tennessee on March 26, 1968, Chesney first entered the music scene in 1989 when he recorded and released his own demo album which he sold while performing at clubs in Johnson City. He sold a total of 1,000 copies.
He was first discovered by Clay Bradley of BMI Records who signed him in 1992, but it was with Capricorn Records that he released his first album in 1994, In My Wildest Dreams. The album was not a very big hit, selling only about 10,000 copies and Capricorn terminated its country division later that year.
Chesney then signed with BNA Records and collaborated with them until they closed down in June of 2012. BNA Records released his second album All I Need To Know in 1995. Two of the singles reached Top Ten of the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, “Fall In Love” and “All I Need To Know”. The third single, “Grandpa Told Me So” peaked at no. 23. Since then, he has had 22 chart topping singles and 14 of his 15 albums have achieved gold and platinum levels.
His latest album, Welcome to the Fishbowl, was released in June 19 of this year. The lead-off single “Feel Like A Rockstars is a duet with Tim McGraw. It debuted at no. 13 on the charts, the highest debuting duet on the Billboard charts.
Kenny Chesney has received numerous awards from different award-giving bodies including the Academy of Country Music, American Music Awards, and People’s Choice Awards, to name a few. The Academy of Country Music awarded him Entertainment of the Year for three consecutive years from 2005 to 2008.
