Kenny Chesney Reveals Cover Art for New ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl’ Album
Kenny Chesney hasn’t put out a new album since his Sept. 2010 release ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey,’ which resulted in four No. 1 singles and went platinum. Now, he is gearing up for another release — his 13th studio album — which is set to come out June 19 on BNA Records. The ‘You and Tequila‘ singer just announced today (March 29) that the moniker for his new record will be ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl.’
Chesney also revealed the cover artwork for his upcoming release, a kind of rainbow colored watercolor with a photo of the country star standing by his guitar case and an ocean in the background. Naturally, Chesney’s sporting his signature cowboy hat and a cutoff shirt and jeans, and his feet are appropriately bare for an ocean shot.
This new album will hit stores just a couple months after the 2012 ACM Awards, for which Chesney has more nominations than any other artist. The singer is up for six awards, including Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year for ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey,’ Vocal Event of the Year for his ‘You and Tequila’ single featuring Grace Potter and Single of the Year and Song of the Year for the same Potter collaboration. Chesney will also be taking the ACMs stage alongside other country stars to offer up a performance during the live telecast.
When he’s not dropping platinum albums or amassing awards, Chesney can be found on the Brothers of the Sun Tour with Tim McGraw, which kicks off June 2 in Tampa, Fla. Though the tour has not yet started, it has already seen more than 600,000 ticket sales. Hitting arenas and venues across the nation, the run will also include appearances by Grace Potter & the Nocturnals as well as Jake Owen.
