Kenny Chesney isn’t doing many shows this year, and he’s taking the chance to play tourist:

The superstar from East Tennessee most recently engaged his wanderlust on an excursion to Europe.

“There’s a lot of places that I’m curious about,” Kenny says. “I love being a tourist. I went to Italy this past year and I loved it because I love to eat,” he laughs.

“I love red wine so it was a lot of fun. I grew up loving cheese, tomatoes,” the notorious fitness buff goes on. “All that’s in Italy. I love it and… I love being a tourist when I can be.”

Chesney Makes Surprise Appearance at Sammy Hagar & Emeril Fundraiser

Check out this fun story from Sammy Hagar about a chance encounter with Kenny Chesney:

Each year Emeril and I put together a special experience to raise money for his foundation – we’ve done dinner in Cabo, in Hawaii and this year it was fishing and lunch on Emeril’s boat! This afternoon we spent with the 10 people that bought the package, and what a lunch it was!

An hour into the boat ride we saw this big gorgeous gunmetal gray 86ft Riva with a few beautiful people on it– I looked closer and noticed it was Kenny Chesney! I screamed at him and he stopped,
backed up, and we had a couple high-fives, a toast, and Emeril handed over to Kenny a big plate of barbecue ribs and a jar of about a half pound of beautiful caviar– can you believe this shit!? We said goodbye and then Kenny showed up at the event later that night at the Marina Club House, and jumped on stage to sing a really soft version of “Eagles Fly”. Vic and I played an acoustic set for over an hour, and Kari joined in for “One Sip”, “When The Sun Don’t Shine”, and “All We Need Is An Island” – it was an unbelievably satisfying and successful event!

Afterwards, Kenny hung out and we polished off a couple bottles of Da’ kine, what a night!
