If you’ve bought a pair of Kenny Chesney’s Costa Del Mar sunglasses, you’ve helped marine life in the St John River through the Coastal Conservation Association. Kenny recently visited the man-made reefs in Jacksonville, Florida.
The two structures were built in just two weeks in the city’s St. John River using 1,300 tons of concrete. In the 18 months since they were built, Kenny says the reefs are “thriving with life.”
“What they were able to create here says a lot about the ways man can live not just in harmony, but supporting our natural aquatic resources,” Kenny says. “Beyond clean water, it is about supporting healthy marine life… and that includes being aware of the impact of erosion under the water.”
Kenny goes on to thank the University of Jacksonville for its help in making the man-made reefs a reality.
Each of the first three singles that Kenny Chesney has released from his latest album The Big Revival have hit number one: “American Kids,” “Til It’s Gone,” and “Wild Child.” Will the fourth single do the same?
“Save it For A Rainy Day” is Kenny’s latest single to head to country radio. Listen to it below:
There’s still plenty of time to get tickets for one of Kenny’s 2015 Tour Dates!
Kenny Chesney’s “Wild Child” hits No. 1 on the Billboard and Mediabase Country Singles charts – marking the first time since Hemingway’s Whiskey that Chesney has seen his first three singles top the charts.
It is also the very first No. 1 for Grace Potter, who shared a GRAMMY nomination with Chesney for “You & Tequila.”
In a cover story for Billboard, Chesney drew a comparison between “Wild Child” and bro country songs: “Over the last several years, it seems like anytime anybody sings about a woman, she’s in cutoff jeans, drinking and on a tailgate — they objectify the hell out of them! […] But I’m at a point where I want to say something different about women”.
He told Taste of Country that he wasn’t searching for another Grace Potter duet, but when he finished writing the song, he knew it was unavoidable. “When you write about women, the best place to start is their spirit, and there’s not a woman that has a better free spirit than Grace Potter”.
The official first day of summer 2015 isn’t even here yet, but Kenny Chesney already has a 2016 tour date lined up: the Taste of Country Music Festival.
After a successful 2015 run on his The Big Revival tour, the “Wild Child” singer has been announced as the first headliner for the 2016 Taste of Country Music Festival in Hunter, N.Y. Next year’s event will run Friday through Sunday, June 10-12.
This eight-time country music Entertainer of the Year is as big as it gets, and he proves it each year by selling out football stadiums across the country. Timeless chart-toppers like “Big Star,” “When the Sun Goes Down,” “Summertime” and “American Kids” keep the crowd amped up until his vulnerable ballads have a chance to hit the heart. “There Goes My Life,” “Don’t Blink” and “You and Tequila” are just three Chesney hits fans know and love best.
The 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival has seen record crowds and top-tier country talent enjoying the beauty and splendor of Hunter Mountain. The venue tucked in the heart of the Catskill Mountains has been a home for over 20,000 fans, plus acts like Keith Urban and Tim McGraw, with Toby Keith performing on Sunday (June 14). Chesney is the first act announced for a 2016 lineup that is sure to be big.
More artists will be revealed in the coming weeks and months. Check out the Taste of Country Music Festival website for more details and to purchase tickets to see Chesney and more next June.

“After that, we couldn’t do just one.”
