Kenny Chesney will sit down for a candid question and answer session with Billboard in June:

Country superstar Kenny Chesney will sit down for a candid Superstar Q&A at the second annual Billboard Country Music Summit in association with the Country Music Association (CMA).

The event, set to take place in Nashville on June 6-7 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel, will gather today’s top country music executives and other artists to network and discuss all aspects of the Country Music business. Chesney will be joining another one of the most successful entertainers in country music today, Carrie Underwood, who will also participate in a Q&A.

Billboard’s Ray Waddell will conduct the rare public interview with Chesney, who is among the elite artists in country music history, by any measure. His tours have raised the standard for country music in terms of production and ticket selling, moving more than a million tickets every time he embarks on a tour.

“As someone who has followed Kenny Chesney’s career since he was playing in clubs, I have a huge appreciation for all he has accomplished in country music,” says Waddell, executive director of content and programming for touring and live entertainment. “His insight into how his career has developed, his musical vision, and his successful outside projects will make for an informative and entertaining session for Summit attendees.”
