Backstory: Kenny Chesney

When Kenny Chesney took on Nashville in the late 90’s, few in the industry gave him much notice. He was one of many young artists trying to follow in the footsteps of the famous "hat acts" that, for a time, had dominated the country music landscape. But after a few years of mediocre sales, mid-level success and eventual identity crisis, Kenny’s tenacious approach, coupled with his legendary work ethic and refusal to fail, ultimately separated him from the pack. From the artist’s humble East Tennessee roots and sports-filled youth, to his perch atop the pinnacle of country music, GAC’s Backstory: Kenny Chesney details his slow rise to popularity, his struggle to gain respect in the music industry and the staggering success Kenny Chesney has found over the past decade.
