Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, Kenny Chesney’s love for music was kindled at an early age. His passion grew in college, where he began his music-writing career and played in local venues. After moving to Nashville, he released his debut album, “In My Wildest Dreams,” in 1993. His third album, "Me and You," was his first to go gold. His next album, "I Will Stand,” which also went gold, gave Chesney his first No. 1 hit, “She’s Got It All.” His fifth album, "Everywhere We Go," sold over two million copies and produced two more No. 1 hits.
"Greatest Hits" became his second double-platinum release in 2000. "When the Sun Goes Down" won Album of the Year at the Country Music Awards, and "Be As You Are (Songs from an Old Blue Chair)," released in 2005, won Chesney Entertainer of the Year. By 2012, the cowboy had created 13 albums. Chesney is set to release his 17th album, "The Big Revival," in 2014.
