Kenny Chesney is a perfect example of a person who followed his dreams. He was born in East Tennessee. After graduating from college, he took his guitar playing skills to Nashville and eventually found his way to superstardom.
The country singer’s music career began with the debut of his 1994 album, fittingly titled “In My Wildest Dreams.” Though the record only achieved minor success, Kenny got his big break in 1997 when he was recognized at the Academy of Country Music Awards as the New Male Vocalist of the Year.
That same year, he earned his first No. 1 hit, “She’s Got It All,” off his third album, “I Will Stand.” In the years following, Kenny topped the charts more than two dozen times!
But, chart-topping aside, perhaps Kenny’s biggest career achievement is the way he entertains his fans. Kenny is the ultimate showman, having sold out arenas across the country. Anytime that he hits the stage, he keeps his No Shoes Nation engaged with his high-spirited energy and relaxing, summertime flair. His ability to captivate an audience has allowed him to win the coveted Entertainer of the Year title eight times. Now, that’s a major feat, y’all!
Kenny Chesney turns 49 years old on March 26, but he shows no signs of slowing down. Let’s all raise our glass and cheers to Kenny as he celebrates another year!
Happy birthday, Kenny!
