Kenny Chesney is Billboard Artist of the Millennium Thanks to ‘Somewhere with You’
For the third week in a row, ‘Somewhere With You’ is the most-played song in all of country music. The track, from his latest album, ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey,’ has now been on the country charts for 53 weeks and is the 21st No. 1 song in Chesney’s career. The tune is also currently No. 33 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
You want amazing statistics? Since 2000, Kenny Chesney has had the most listened-to song on country radio nearly 10% of the time. Here’s another – over his amazingly successful 17 year career, the ‘Somewhere with You’ singer has recorded 15 albums, 14 of which have reached gold or platinum-selling status.
As previously mentioned, Chesney was just named Tennessean of the Year by the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame. Speaking of sports, which I guess we are now, the documentary Chesney produced on the life of football player Condredge Holloway will debut on ESPN Feb. 20, 2011.
