Kenny Chesney Changes Record Labels

In a surprising move, Kenny Chesney has left his longtime record label Sony Music Nashville for Warner Music.

“It is a big deal to change labels,” Chesney said in a statement, crediting Warner Music Nashville chairman/CEO John “Espo” Esposito, Warner Music Nashville senior VP A&R Cris Lacy and new Warner Music Group CEO, Recorded Music, Max Lousada, with shepherding the move. “But when you hear Max, Espo and Cris Lacy talk about music, about what it means and does, when you hear that passion, you can’t help but get fired up,” he explained. “To me, music is only complete when it gets to the fans and becomes part of their lives. The people at Warner understand my commitment to that idea, and they’re just as committed to those ideals as I am.”

Following the release of his 1994 debut album on Capricorn, Chesney switched to RCA Nashville’s BNA imprint for 1995’s All I Need To Know. After RCA and Sony merged, he moved over to Sony’s Columbia Nashville via his Blue Chair imprint. Future releases will now be on Blue Chair Records/Warner Bros. Records.

The move comes as Chesney’s 2016 studio album, Cosmic Hallelujah, is up for best country album at the Jan. 28 Grammy Awards. Chesney’s latest release, Live In No Shoes Nation, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country albums chart in November, making it his 15th chart topper. He has sold more than 30 million albums, according to Warner Music Nashville and logged 30 No. 1 singles.

“Kenny Chesney embodies the relentless pursuit of artistic freedom and expression,” Esposito said. “An unapologetic free spirit, he has built a career on perseverance, drive, innovation, and most especially, great songs. Everything he does is inspired. It is with deep respect and honor that we welcome Kenny to Warner Music Nashville. We couldn’t be more excited to work with him and his team.”

Lousada added, “Kenny’s not only a country music icon, but an American superstar, who’s still hungry to write, record, and perform amazing music that moves millions of people. The fact that he has chosen Warner Music as his new label home is a huge testament to the culture created by Espo and his team, who have made our Nashville operation a magnet for both emerging talent and established artists.”

Kenny Chesney appeared on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Myers on Monday night where he was interviewed and performed “Jesus and Elvis.”

The country superstar also talked to Meyers about the album, which marks his first Grammy nomination for a work that is not a collaboration, as well as the extensive charity work he’s been doing in St. John since Hurricane Irma, which also hit Chesney’s house in the islands. Chesney started a foundation called Love for Love City after the storms passed, and he’s been on the ground constantly since then, using his own private plane to shuttle supplies in and take refugees out of harm’s way.
