Kenny Chesney is Billboard Artist of the Millennium
Kenny Chesney‘s latest single, ‘Somewhere With You,’ has officially made the impeccably-groomed superstar the most fruitful country artist of the millennium, according to Billboard magazine. Get more on this great story at TasteofCountry.com.
I believe Kenny has continued to be such a success in country music because of his ability to speak to every person through his music.
The richness of his unique voice seems to emulate the great country artists of the past, while being so connected with today’s country!
For the third week in a row, ‘Somewhere With You’ is the most-played song in all of country music. The track, from his latest album, ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey,’ has now been on the country charts for 53 weeks and is the 21st No. 1 song in Chesney’s career. The tune is also currently No. 33 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
Kenny Chesney has always been a favorite of mine! I met him in 1995 when he came to KNUE to promote his album “Tin Man.” I even have a picture of me and Kenny together in the KNUE studio. Congratulations Kenny. You deserve this recognition!
