Chesney Notches Billboard Number One Album

Kenny Chesney has landed his eighth number one album with Live in No Shoes Nation:

Kenny Chesney became the first artist to land a live album atop the Billboard 200 in seven years as the country singer’s all-star live LP Live in No Shoes Nation debuted at Number One.

Live in No Shoes Nation sold 219,000 copies in its first week of availability, with the bulk of that total coming from a deal that coupled tickets to Chesney’s 2018 stadium tour with a free copy of the live album. However, the sales only apply to fans that redeemed a code to acquire the live album, which only a fraction of the million-plus ticket buyers did, Billboard estimates.

By finishing in the top spot, Chesney now has eight Number One albums in his catalog, only one behind Garth Brooks’ record among country artists for most chart-topping albums.

Live in No Shoes Nation is the first live album since the Hope for Haiti Now compilation in 2010 to rule the Billboard 200, and the highest-selling live album since Paul McCartney’s Back in the U.S. Live 2002 debuted with 224,000 copies 15 years ago.

Kenny Chesney has another number one hit on his hands with “All The Pretty Girls.”

Kenny Chesney’s “All the Pretty Girls” (Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville) rises 2-1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart (dated Oct. 14), increasing 7 -percent to 47 million audience impressions in the week ending Oct. 1, according to Nielsen Music. On Hot Country Songs, the single remains bulleted at its No. 7 peak.

Chesney banks his 28th Country Airplay No. 1, a roll that began more than 20 years ago on the chart dated Aug. 30, 1997, when “She’s Got It All,” his ninth entry, became his first No. 1, for three weeks.

“Few songs have as much summer in them as ‘All the Pretty Girls,’ which is why I wanted to record it,” Chesney tells Billboard of the song (which debuted on the June 17 chart, four days before summer started). “To me, there’s a special excitement that is summer and being young and alive. I think the guys caught that in the studio, and in a year that we weren’t on the road, I think I still got to be a part of No Shoes Nation’s summer through this song.”

Twenty Years Ago: Kenny’s First Number One Single

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.”

Chesney and P!NK Hit Number One

It’s another number one hit for Kenny Chesney as his duet “Setting the World on Fire” with P!NK topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart this week:

Penned by Ross Copperman, Matt Jenkins and Josh Osborne, “Fire” is the second single from Chesney’s 17th studio album, Cosmic Hallelujah, due Oct. 28. Debut single “Noise” peaked at No. 14 on Hot Country Songs and No. 6 on Country Airplay.

“Fire” marks Chesney’s 23rd Hot Country Songs No. 1, and his first since the survey became an airplay/sales/streaming hybrid chart, splitting from the solely radio-based Country Airplay chart, on Oct. 20, 2012. The track rebounds 3-1 for a fifth week atop Country Digital Song Sales with 35,000 downloads sold in the week ending Oct. 6 (up 32 percent, likely sparked by the new album going up for preorder), according to Nielsen Music. It holds at its No. 3 high on Country Airplay (41.8 -million impressions, up 3 percent) and reaches the Country Streaming Songs top 10 (11-9; 2 million U.S. streams, down 5 percent).

“It is so rare to find songs that are truly in the moment like ‘Setting the World on Fire,’ ” Chesney tells Billboard. “When you add Pink, you get a definite charge of two people on the brink. She helps bring the listener into the moment. At a time when the world is pretty overloaded, to hear something so fresh, and a moment so perfectly captured in a song, it’s hard to resist. Finding the song was awesome and -getting Pink to sing on it was incredible.”
