Kenny Chesney

Contemporary country star Kenny Chesney didn't have the immediate breakout success that many of his peers enjoyed upon signing with major labels, but gradually built up a significant following via hard work, pop-friendly ballads, and a likable "Average Joe" persona. Chesney was born in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1968 and raised in the nearby small town of Luttrell, best known as the home of Chet Atkins. He grew up listening to both country and rock & roll, but didn't get serious about music until college, when he studied marketing at East Tennessee State University. He received a guitar as a Christmas present and set about practicing, and was soon performing with the college bluegrass band. He soon started writing songs as well and played for tips in local venues -- most often a Mexican restaurant -- every night he could; additionally, he managed to sell 1,000 copies of a self-released demo album. After graduation in 1991, he moved to Nashville and became the resident performer at The Turf, a rough honky tonk in the city's historic district. While he gained experience, it wasn't the sort of place where he'd be discovered, and in 1992, he moved on to a publishing deal with Acuff-Rose. From there he landed a record contract with Capricorn and released his debut album, In My Wildest Dreams, in late 1993.

Unfortunately for Chesney, Capricorn wasn't much of a country label; not only was the album underpromoted, but the label's country division shut down completely not long after its release. Still, it sold 100,000 copies and caught the attention of several major labels. Chesney ended up signing with RCA subsidiary BNA, which released All I Need to Know in 1995. The album gave him his first two Top Ten hits in the title track and "Fall in Love." His follow-up, 1996's Me and You, became his first album to go gold, thanks to two number two singles in the title track and "When I Close My Eyes." Released in 1997, I Will Stand was another gold-selling effort that gave Chesney his first-ever number one hit in "She's Got It All," plus another number two with "That's Why I'm Here." His big-time breakthrough, however, came with 1999's Everywhere We Go, which sold over two million copies and spawned two number one hits with "You Had Me from Hello" and "How Forever Feels"; it also featured another Top Ten single in "What I Need to Do," and another, "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy," that just missed. In 2000, Chesney issued his first Greatest Hits compilation, and two newly recorded songs -- "I Lost It" and "Don't Happen Twice" -- went to number three and number one, respectively.

Greatest Hits became Chesney's second straight double-platinum release and topped the country LP charts. He followed it with the all-new No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem in early 2002, which gave him his strongest commercial performance yet. It, too, hit number one on the country album charts and spun off four Top Ten singles in "Young," the number one "The Good Stuff," the Bill Anderson co-write "A Lot of Things Different," and "Big Star." A Christmas album plugged the gap for 2003, and he had a strong return with 2004's When the Sun Goes Down, which won in the Album of the Year category at the Country Music Awards. He repeated the win, this time as Entertainer of the Year, with Be as You Are (Songs from an Old Blue Chair).

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.

Welcome to the Fishbowl performed respectably, debuting at number two on the Billboard 200 and generating the number one country single "Come Over," along with the Top 20 hits "Feel Like a Rock Star" and "El Cerrito Place." Following its release, Chesney's label BNA shuttered and he jumped over to Columbia Nashville, which released Life on a Rock in April 2013. The album hit number one, and the single "Pirate Flag" reached the country Top Ten. Chesney quickly followed Life on a Rock with The Big Revival. A conscious shift toward a brighter sound, The Big Revival was Chesney's liveliest work of the decade, as evidenced by its first single, "American Kids," a singalong that peaked at number two on the country charts. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Thank you benderkoi, I mean if any of you that actually think he's gay would listen to his music like "summertime" , "no shoes, no shirt no problem" or "reality" you'd understand he's not gay he's just a fan lover

Climb to the top of recognition just to be hacked on by the incompetent few. I personally enjoy his music, I doubt he's gay, but even if he was, would that change his contribution to music? lol, you people can't think past the end of your fork.

Good point marken but I've actually heard rumors going around right now that he's engaged idk if they are true I don't believe half the stuff people say about my musicians if they aren't I can see why I mean the guy spends most of his life on tours and writing songs he just probably doesn't make time, he's fan lover he loves his fans it's just that simple and there's nothing wrong with that

Because actually believe it or not Kenny was the that wanted to get the divorce
Report as inappropriate
The only reason why people say he's gay bowerbeth97 is because there was some big rumor that he tried on Renee zellweggers clothes when they were married and that's why they got a divorce but don't believe that it's a lie just celebrity gossip it's just people being people trying to ruin an awesome artist because they don't know good music

I worked at a couple Kenny Chesney concerts in the early 2000's in Ptown. I like some of his songs, especially from the "No Shirt, No shoes No Problem" CD
Report as inappropriate
Saw Kenny in concert in Little Rock on his No Shirt tour. My son and I both cried when he sang the one about doing things different. I also love Who You'd Be Today. Was listening to it in my car with my two grandsons. The youngest asked me to change the song. He had tears in his eyes-his Daddy had passed away several years before and the song reminded him of his Daddy.
