Today marks twenty years since Kenny Chesney first hit number one on the country charts.

Aug. 30 marks a big anniversary for Kenny Chesney: It was on that date, 20 years ago, that the Tennessee native reached a career turning point with “She’s Got It All,” from his fourth album, I Will Stand. The song became his first No. 1 Billboard hit on Aug. 30, 1997.

Written by Craig Wiseman and Drew Womack, “She’s Got It All” was released as the lead single from I Will Stand. It debuted on the charts in May and reached the No. 1 position several months later.

Chesney had already released six singles by the time “She’s Got It All” landed at the top of the charts. He came close to the No. 1 spot with his previous single, “When I Close My Eyes,” from his previous album, Me and You; that song came in at No. 2, narrowly failing to reach the highest position.

The multi-platinum-selling singer has gone on to have more than 20 other songs go all the way to No. 1, including “How Forever Feels,” “You Had Me From Hello,” “The Good Stuff” and “There Goes My Life.”
