This week Billboard released a list of the Top 25 Live Acts since 1990, and Kenny Chesney is one of three country acts on the list, and the only one in the top 10.

“You look at a list like this… with so many iconic rock acts, people like Madonna or Elton John, and you think, ‘Man,’” said Chesney. “When you get on the bus for the first time, you’re just hoping people will come. You never expect to be in this kind of company, unless you’re buying a ticket.”

Here’s the top 10:

  1. The Rolling Stones
  2. U2
  3. Bruce Springsteen
  4. Madonna
  5. Bon Jovi
  6. Elton John
  7. Dave Matthews Band
  8. Celine Dion
  9. Kenny Chesney
  10. The Eagles

According to Billboard, in the past 25 years Kenny Chesney has grossed $752,706,599, with 12,681,629 in attendance at 755 shows.

George Strait came in at #19 and Toby Keith landed at #22.
