Next week, CMT will reveal their picks for Artist of the Year, but the star-studded night will include performances from THE BIGGEST stars in Country Music. Any one of them could easily earn the honor. Kenny Chesney will be performing during the show which will be taped Monday evening in Nashville.
What can we say about Kenny Chesney, except that he’s had one heckuva wildly successful career. With 22 number one singles on 15 albums, he’s been a household name since everyone declared his “Tractor Sexy.”
The East Tennessee native snuck onto the music scene in 1994 and started lighting sparks. The fire officially started burning when he had his first no. 1 song with “She’s Got it All.” From then on, nothing stopped Kenny. From there he started playing arenas to selling them out. Now, the summer isn’t complete with out a sold-out Kenny Chesney stadium tour playing to millions of fans.
His straight climb to the top has earned him four CMA Entertainer of the Year trophies and one of the same from the Academy of Country Music.
Will Kenny’s performance slot on CMT’s Artist of the Year special turn into another honor?? I guess we’ll have to tune in on Saturday, December 8th at 10/9c on CMT to find out.
