Besides winning six ACM Awards and three CMA Awards, Chesney usually tops the charts in earnings with record-breaking ticket sales during his nationwide tours.

Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, he was a high school football player and later attended East Tennessee State University where he graduated with a degree in advertising.

All through his college days, Chesney also performed at nearby bars & restaurants around Johnson City and after graduation moved to Nashville where he played at local clubs before signing on with BMI and Opryland Music Group in 1992.

The early road to stardom was slow but steady,with his first album "In My Wildest Dreams" barely reaching the Billboard country charts that year, but in 1995 followed up with his second album, "All I Need To Know" resulting in three hit singles including the title track. His third album, "Me and You", released the next year went gold, and in 1997 had his first No. 1 single in "She's Got It All".

1999's "Everywhere We Go" was Chesney's first platinum album from which were spun off various hits including two No. 1 singles, "How Forever Feels" and "You Had Me From Hello". Other hits from the album also included "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" and "What I Need to Do".

Chesney continued to follow success after success with such monster country music hits as "The Good Stuff" and "Young" from his 2002 album "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems", following up with another hit single in "There Goes My Life" from his 2004 album "When the Sun Goes Down" named Album of the Year at the CMA Awards.

In 2005, Chesney released two albums, "Be as You Are" and "The Road and The Radio", the latter spinning off such hits as "Living in Fast Forward", "Summertime", and "Beer In Mexico".

"Never Wanted Nothing More" was Kenny Chesney's twelfth No. 1 hit on the Billboard charts in 2007 from the album released that year, "Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates" kicking off a nationwide tour in April 2008.

Later that same year, Chesney released a new single off an upcoming album entitled Lucky Old Sun. The song was titled "Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven", which soon became a #1 hit and a favorite on Chesney's 2009 tour entitled the Sun City Carnival Tour.

The country singer later turned movie idol in 2010 with the opening of the acclaimed "Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3D" which opened in movie theaters coast to coast in April of that year featuring his performances before live crowds in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seattle, Indianapolis and Foxboro, Massachusetts.
