Kenny Chesney has been a staple in country music for decades. Chesney received his first career GRAMMY nomination for 2004 for Best Country Collaboration With Vocal for “Hey Good Lookin'” with Clint Black, Jimmy Buffett, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, and George Strait. He made his GRAMMY stage debut performing “Better As A Memory” at the 51st GRAMMY Awards in 2009.
The album is an attempt to reckon with the devastation Hurricane Irma bore down upon the Virgin Islands, the Caribbean island where the deeply private Chesney spends a great deal of time when he’s not touring.
Chesney visited the GRAMMY Museum at L.A. Live for An Evening With Kenny Chesney in 2011 to talk about his career and life on the road. He also performed “One Step Up” during Bruce Springsteen ‘s MusiCares Person of the Year celebration. The annual Person of the Year gala raises funds for MusiCares, which provides services and resources that cover a wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies for music people.
Chesney is one of the most decorated country artists of all time. His epic résumé includes 30 No. 1 singles, four Entertainer of the Year Awards, over 30 million album sales, and an impressive track record of selling out stadiums all across the country (including Miller Park in 2013, 2016, and 2018).
Chesney’s recurring opening act Old Dominion, and Michael Franti & Spearhead, are also on the bill for the 20-date “Chillaxification 2020 Tour,” announced Tuesday morning. The Milwaukee Brewers ballpark will host the second date, on April 25.
Loved the concert, Kenny Chesney, Sam Hunt and Old Dominion were GREAT. He’ll bring the Chillaxification tour to Detroit on Saturday, Aug. 15, 2020, with Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion and Michael Franti & Spearhead.

Chesney’s beginnings in music are traced to Christmas in 1986 when he was gifted his first guitar and began teaching himself to play. Chesney’s musical career took a slight side step as he decided to pursue a degree in advertising at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, where he was a member of the ETSU Bluegrass Program and the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity. In 1989, Chesney recorded his first self-released demo album at the Classic Recording Studio in Bristol, Virginia. He managed to sell 1,000 copies while performing on the local scene in Johnson City and used the money from album sales to help buy a new guitar. After graduation, he headed to Nashville and performed at several local clubs. He became the resident performer at The Turf, a honky tonk bar in the city’s historic district.
In 2016, the Dixie Chicks and Beyoncé performed together at the Country Music Association Awards show and it was absolutely incredible. However, when the camera was cutting to celebrities in the crowd, they caught Kenny Chesney with a rather sour face. Social media shamed him to the point that Chesney had to release a statement to redeem his reputation. He stated he’s a genuine Beyoncé fan who was simply focused on watching the show and was saddened by the media’s harsh response to this.
Florida Georgia Line is also touring behind a new album, February’s “Can’t Say I Ain’t Country,” and they’ve played packed Summerfest amphitheater headlining shows last year and in 2015. Old Dominion was one of the big bookings at the Wisconsin State Fair in August.
With the Platinum certified multiple week #1 American Kids” and it’s follow-up Til Its Gone” hitting the charts at #18 with a bullet on add date, Chesney’s music has once again struck a nerve with the No Shoes Nation.
After the George Strait Country Music Festival in upstate New York, where Kenny and Tim McGraw collaborated, the two musicians stood in the parking lot, lightly chatting. Suddenly, they spotted a sheriff, accompanied by a horse, and with Kenny’s riding boots already on, he couldn’t help but ask to sit on the officer’s stallion. After receiving permission, he hopped on the horse and rode off into the distance. Despite the Sheriff ‘s pleas for him to stop, Kenny didn’t turn back. The two were arrested, but the charges were eventually dropped.
Gleason noted that one of the characteristics that makes Chesney special is his tendency to lavish love on his fans instead of just soaking up their adoration and giving nothing back. She said people who buy the book will have a glimpse of the singer’s heart.
Many people dream of becoming a rock star, but few actually get to achieve the riches and fame that come along with it. Luckily, Kenny was one of the fortunate few who managed to create himself a career doing what he loves. According to Forbes magazine, Kenny is the 53rd highest-earning celebrity in the world, earning $42.5 annually. If you count just the musicians on the list, Forbes has Kenny at 18th in the world. Although he enjoys spending his money on awesome adventures, he still gives charity to groups like Farm Aid and The Salvation Army.
Remembering Kenny and Tim McGraw’s wild horse fiasco is naturally the first thing we think of when we hear these two epic names, but there are actually many other things to remember about this country duo. For one, remember the time when the two embarked on a co-headlining tour together? Brothers of the Sun Tour saw Chesney and McGraw join forces once again, touring 22 venues in over two dozen cities. The tour grossed $96 million in ticket sales and hosted over a million people at each show.
Chesney’s Bobcat Stadium appearance marks his first appearance in Montana in nearly 20 years and the second time in a generation that the Bobcat Stadium has hosted a concert. The rock band Imagine Dragons played a sold-out show in the summer of 2018.
After playing 19 major stadium concerts, breaking 11 records and playing to over 1.3 million members of No Shoes Nation, Kenny Chesney decided to scale things back, head to where the fans are and create a more intimate concert experience. Though known for his high impact shows, Songs for the Saints 2019 Tour is going to bring all the energy, all the intensity and all the songs to 19 select markets.
Sheeran, meanwhile, released the album No.6 Collaborations Project on Friday. He confirms his marriage to Cherry Seaborn in the song “Remember the Name” featuring Eminem and 50 Cent.

When George W. Bush was president, he was invited to attend a state dinner with the Australian Prime Minister, John Howard. Wanting to serenade them, Bush invited Kenny Chesney to perform at the event. After the show, Bush presented the country star with a pair of eel-skin cowboy boots, specially designed by the famous Rocky-Carroll. The shoes were customized with engravings of Kenny’s initials and the flags of Australia and the U.S. Bush and Chesney met once again when Kenny sang the national anthem in 2008 at the White House Tee Ball All-Star Game.
Little disappointed in Songkick, Paid good money for our seats, went to go sit in them and no where did it say on my tickets “Obstruction Of view” well there was a huge pole with lights!!! Not happy at all.
The show will mark the 54th concert or music festival in Arrowhead Stadium history and will be the 14th concert performance that the stadium has hosted since 2011. The 2020 show will be Chesney’s second appearance at Arrowhead in the last three years. Chesney will make Kansas City, Missouri, the 13th stop on his country-wide stadium tour in 2020.
Chesney found himself the subject of much tabloid fodder in 2005 with his surprise marriage to actress Renée Zellweger (he had composed 1999’s “You Had Me from Hello” after watching Zellweger in the 1996 film Jerry Maguire). The pair split that same year, citing irreconcilable differences, and Chesney released the chart-topping The Road and the Radio in November. In the years that followed, Chesney kept busy, releasing Live: Live Those Songs Again in 2006 and Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates in 2007. In April 2010, Chesney and director Joe Thomas released the 3-D concert film Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D. Taken from his 2009 Sun City Carnival Tour, the film included 23 songs from six stadium shows, shot in 3-D, interspersed with interviews and home movies. A completely new studio album, Hemingway’s Whiskey , named after a Guy Clark song, also appeared in 2010. His 13th studio album, Welcome to the Fishbowl , arrived in 2012.
Journalist Anderson Cooper got a behind-the-scenes look at Chesney’s pre-concert routine and it was certainly NOT what he expected. The backstage green-room isn’t a fancy place with leather couches and all-you-can-drink martinis. Instead, Kenny waited inside of a tiny box, just large enough to fit him and Anderson inside. They were then secretly wheeled towards the stage, where Kenny appeared out of nowhere and surprised the unsuspecting audience. And all this was in time for the opening song.
During a concert in South Carolina, Kenny got injured because of a stage equipment mishap. While singing his third song, his foot got caught between a lift and the stage, and he ended up being trapped for a whole thirty seconds. Once he freed himself, he got back to singing, but it was clear to see by his limping that he was injured. With overflowing adrenaline and not wanting to disappoint his fans, Kenny managed to keep his performance incredible, accident and all.
Recently singled out by Variety as “Country’s only long-term stadium act,” Chillaxification 2020 builds on the enduring rite of summer that Chesney’s stadium shows have become. With the multiple week No. 1 “Get Along” from his deeply personal Songs for the Saints, benefiting the Love for Love City Fund, and the steamy “Tip of My Tongue” hovering just outside the Top 10 at Country radio, there’s a lot of new music, old favorites and surprises on tap for what will be the summer’s biggest tour.
Having defined the country music stadium experience over the last decade and a half, Chesney spent this year’s Songs for the Saints Tourtaking his music to the cities that have been overlooked on his massive million-tickets-a-summer treks. Having played 159 stadium shows – rocking over a million people at Gillette Stadium alone – Chillaxification 2020promises to be everything No Shoes Nation has come to expect from the man who gave them American Kids,” Beer In Mexico,” Out Last Night,” Noise,” When the Sun Goes Down” and more.
Over the course of his career, Kenny Chesney has collaborated with several notable artists. He worked on a remake of Hank Williams’ “Hey, Good Lookin'” with one of his personal heroes, Jimmy Buffet A version of Tracy Lawrence’s single “Find Out Who Your Friends Are” features both Chesney and Tim McGraw Chesney co-wrote “Take Me There” for Rascal Flatts and sang a duet with Reba McEntire entitled “Every Other Weekend.” In 2012, he co-headlined the Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw.
