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.”

Kenny Chesney’s latest offering, Cosmic Hallelujah, is heading towards a number one debut on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart.

Country superstar Kenny Chesney is on track for his eighth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, according to industry forecasters. Sources say his latest release, Cosmic Hallelujah, could launch with over 80,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Nov. 3.

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.”
