Kenny Chesney is the man that brought us soulful country songs like ‘Me AndYou’ and ‘You Had Me At Hello’. He’s always quick to mention his home in Tennessee in both interviews and Music. He uses real life experiences and writes about his favorite things- women and football. His honesty and ownership of lyrics makes his music relatable to his fans.

A few years ago, Kenny took an unexpected turn. He began writing songs and making videos about his second home in St.John. This became the starting point of a new kind of music called ‘Caribbean Country’. Caribbean Country quickly took off and at least a dozen other artist began to add beachy rhythms to their lyrics.

Year after year, Kenny racked up on awards like ‘Entertainer of the Year’ and ‘Album of the Year’. He was at the top of Country Music for several years, until the massive rush of new artist came.

In a recent television interview with CMT, Chesney admitted being worn out and worn down with music. He said he took a break away from music completely and was able to come up with the new hit single ‘You and Tequilla’.

‘You and Tequilla’ went straight to the top. Kenny is nominated for 9 ACM awards including ‘Entertainer of the Year’ and ‘Vocal Event of the Year’. Last year, Kenny also produced and co-directed a film called ‘The Boys of Fall‘ for ESPN .

He will start a new tour called ‘Brothers of the Sun’ (with Tim McGraw )this Summer. It looks like Kenny Chesney is back on top.
