Country music superstar Kenny Chesney’s voice instantly puts listeners at ease and his music often carries hallmarks of an island dweller’s attitude. This makes perfect sense due to the Tennessee native’s love of the Caribbean, where he also often resides.
“There was a time that I was so busy, from 2000 to 2008, I was literally so busy on the road and then I would leave the tour and then I would go south. So, there were two or three years where I was never even in Nashville really, just for a couple of days. I would literally pack to come home because I was either there or I was on the road,” Kenny shared while appearing on The Bobby Bones Show.
Regardless of the star’s geographical location, the island way of life will always impact his music in some shape or form.
“I think it is very much an authentic part of my life. I mean, a huge part of my music and my creative spirit and my soul. But I’m not there as much as people think I am. I work really hard and I’m on the bus a lot,” Kenny revealed with a laugh.

Be sure to catch Kenny as he traverses the nation on his upcoming Trip Around the Sun Tour! The trek kicks off on April 21st at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium, with his amphitheater shows set to begin May 10th at Virginia Beach’s Farm Bureau Live. The tour will thread between massive stadium shows and the more streamlined concerts throughout the summer— and see Chesney create two very different kinds of concert experiences.
