Kenny Chesney

If Kenny Chesney's new traditional tinged country style leans toward hard rocking pop, blame it on the '70s FM radio and the country rock music coming out of the radio stations in his hometown of Luttrell, TN, a small place just outside Knoxville (also Chet Atkins' hometown). Chesney wasn't one of those kids who grew up with stage parents in Stetsons. He actually stumbled into the realm of country music by accident while studying marketing at East Tennessee State University. He found a guitar under the Christmas tree and was soon playing country and bluegrass with some college buddies. He's one of those rare musicians who got to where he is without the help of any contacts, hook-ups or any Star Search copycat television shows. Chesney climbed his way to the top in the traditional grass roots fashion of constant playing, demo recording, touring and self-promotion. While Chesney's songs maintain the gritty twang of yesteryear's honky-tonk, he has clearly found a balance that suits his songs well -- the scales are tipped toward high-end radio production and polished song hooks. And he has been known to mix in a little beach-twang here and there, a-la Jimmy Buffett.

    There’s a reason Kenny Chesney received four consecutive ACM Entertainer of the Year awards. Backed by a flawless band and horn section, Chesney presents contemporary country at its finest on this episode of Soundstage. Encouraging the audience to leave their problems at the door, Kenny proceeds to blow the roof off with party anthem opener “Beer in Mexico.”

    Chesney’s musical stylings are diverse during this set, ranging from beachy, tropical homages like “Summertime” to reflective, soft crooners like “Better As A Memory” and “Back Where I Come From.” Bounding back and forth across the stage, his unabashed energy translates perfectly into friendly heartland ballads and sincere, feel-good sing alongs like “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems,” and “Young.” Truly a spectacular night, Chesney also performs “How Forever Feels” in this intimate studio setting, putting you in a good mood for days.
