Chesney Receives BMI President’s Award

Kenny Chesney picked up the first of two major awards in as many days on Tuesday night in Nashville:

Chesney was honored as a songwriter by the performing rights organization BMI, which gave him the BMI President’s Award. On Wednesday, he’ll be honored as one of the genre’s top entertainers when he is given the Pinnacle Award at the 50th annual Country Music Association Awards.

“I don’t know if in my whole life I have ever felt so much love in a room,” Chesney told the crowd of songwriters, publishers and singers.

During the event, Keith Urban performed Chesney’s song, “I Go Back,” starting the song off with just an acoustic guitar before ending it with a ripping electric guitar solo.

Urban talked about his early years opening for Chesney on tour when Urban had just gotten out of rehab for drug and alcohol abuse.

“We had a heart-to-heart about what I was going through and you were just a friend right from that moment and it’s only stayed that way ever since,” Urban said. “Brother, I love you.”

Eric Church performed “Anything But Mine,” and longtime songwriter Dean Dillon performed Chesney’s first ever single, “The Tin Man,” a song Chesney wrote by himself.

“We’ve talked very much about what Kenny has done and he should be honored for that,” Church said. “.. What he has done is great, but what he is doing is better.”

The Knoxville, Tennessee-native who broke onto the scene in the mid-1990s has 29 No. 1 country songs and sold in excess of 30 million albums. He is considered one of music’s top touring artists.

“We’ve heard a lot of people talk about me on stage and me in front of all these people,” Chesney said. “But me on stage wouldn’t be possible without my creative spirit and my creative heart, and God put a song in my heart many years ago.”

Chesney to Receive Coveted Pinnacle Awards at CMA’s

The 50th annual CMA Awards will be held this Wednesday, November 2nd and Kenny Chesney will receive a very prestigious award.

The singer, whose duet with Pink “Setting the World on Fire” recently topped the charts, is the 2016 recipient of the Country Music Association’s Pinnacle Award, given to an artist who has achieved global success with both ticket and record sales. So far, only two other artists have received the special award: inaugural honoree Garth Brooks in 2005 and Taylor Swift in 2013.

Chesney, who has 43 career CMA nominations and eight wins, four of them in Entertainer of the Year, won’t tour in 2017, aside from a few festival appearances.

“When I’m really busy I crave being still, and when I’m still I start to freak the hell out,” Chesney tells Rolling Stone Country.

But the break won’t last too long. He predicts a big 2018 tour.

“The second half of the year I’ll be mentally busy prepping for ’18, but the first half I’m going to be doing some shows and I’m hoping to be creative in some way,” he says. “Hopefully, I’ll get to spend some more time with my family and reconnect with the people you’re not supposed to have to get reconnected to, but that is my life and that is my truth.”

Watch the CMA Awards Wednesday, November 2nd at 8/7c on ABC.

Kenny Chesney will receive a prestige music industry award at the annual BMI Music Awards:

BMI will celebrate the extraordinary career of Kenny Chesney by presenting him with the BMI President’s Award at the Company’s 64th annual BMI Country Awards, to be held at BMI’s Nashville office on November 1, 2016. BMI President and CEO Mike O’Neill will host the ceremony with Jody Williams, BMI Vice President, Writer/Publisher Relations, Nashville.

The BMI President’s Award is presented to songwriters who have distinctly and profoundly influenced the entertainment industry. In receiving the award, Chesney will join an impressive list of past honorees that includes P!nk, Willie Nelson, Brooks & Dunn, Pitbull, Adam Levine, Gloria & Emilio Estefan, and Toni Braxton.

“Kenny Chesney is first and foremost a songwriter,” says Williams. “Not only has he earned the respect of the songwriting community, but he has also developed into a top-notch recording artist who re-wrote the concert touring experience by selling out stadiums year after year. He is a friend to up-and-coming artists and songwriters and is as inspiring as he is talented. It is time to salute him for a career that has brought so much to so many, and is far from over.”

Chesney Performs at ACM Awards

Kenny Chesney was in Las Vegas on Sunday night for the ACM Awards where he performed his latest single “Noise.”

Chesney strode the stage, addressing the audience from all angles, clad in a simple gray T-shirt, jeans and a black cowboy hat, putting to use the stage skills he has honed over the years as one of the perennial top concert draws in country music.
The song is the lead single from Chesney’s upcoming studio album Some Town Somewhere, which is set for release in July. It’s his first-ever stab at social relevance in a song, taking on the cable news cycle, cell phones and social media’s white noise, with a lyric about the importance of being able to unplug the noise and tap into what’s really important.

Chesney Wins Billboard Touring Award

Kenny Chesney took home the Top Package award at the 2015 Billboard Touring awards on Thursday night.

Chesney’s 2015 trek was declared the winner in the Top Package category, which also featured Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line, among others, as nominees. The trophy is his eighth Billboard Touring Award, all in the Top Package category.

“We put a lot of thought into every year’s tour,” Chesney says in a press release. “It’s not just about bringing the music out to the No Shoes Nation … It’s about how to create an experience every year that stands out, that’s worth remembering, that gives people a chance to love life, love music and have fun.”

“One of the best things about these tours, especially the stadium shows, is taking out artists who’re starting to make an impact and exposing them to a lot of people. It’s like turning your friends onto all kinds of bands — like when you’re young and music and sports is all that matters,” Chesney continues. “… Turning people on to great music is one of the coolest things, and it makes putting these packages together something that’s more than just a formula or who’s hot.”

Chesney was also nominated in the Top Draw category at the 2015 Billboard Touring Awards — the win went to One Direction — while Church was nominated in the Breakthrough category.
