Kenny Chesney has released four songs from The Big Revival and every one has reached the top of the charts, including the latest single “Save it For A Rainy Day.”

Kenny Chesney scores his 26th No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart (dated Oct. 3) as “Save It for a Rainy Day” jumps 4-1 in its 14th week with 48 million audience impressions (up 10 percent), according to Nielsen Music. Chesney ties Alan Jackson and George Strait for the second-most leaders in the chart’s 25-year history. Tim McGraw leads with 27 No. 1s.

The midtempo “Day” is Chesney’s fourth Country Airplay leader from his album The Big Revival. Story-song “American Kids” led the Sept. 20, 2014 list, followed by pop-rocker “Til It’s Gone” (Jan. 31) and the folky “Wild Child” with Grace Potter (June 27). The set has sold 419,000 copies to date. Chesney last notched four Country Airplay No. 1s from an LP with 2010’s Hemingway’s Whiskey: “The Boys of Fall,” “Somewhere With You,” “Live a Little” and “Reality.”

“Wild Child” Hits Number One!

Kenny Chesney’s latest single “Wild Child” has just gone number one on the Billboard chart!

Kenny Chesney’s “Wild Child” hits No. 1 on the Billboard and Mediabase Country Singles charts – marking the first time since Hemingway’s Whiskey that Chesney has seen his first three singles top the charts.

It is also the very first No. 1 for Grace Potter, who shared a GRAMMY nomination with Chesney for “You & Tequila.”

In a cover story for Billboard, Chesney drew a comparison between “Wild Child” and bro country songs: “Over the last several years, it seems like anytime anybody sings about a woman, she’s in cutoff jeans, drinking and on a tailgate — they objectify the hell out of them! […] But I’m at a point where I want to say something different about women”.

He told Taste of Country that he wasn’t searching for another Grace Potter duet, but when he finished writing the song, he knew it was unavoidable. “When you write about women, the best place to start is their spirit, and there’s not a woman that has a better free spirit than Grace Potter”.

At a recent event at BMI, Kenny Chesney was on hand along with the songwriters for “American Kids” and “Til It’s Gone” to celebrate both songs reaching number one back to back.

Rodney Clawson, Luke Laird and Shane McAnally wrote “American Kids,” the first single from Chesney’s “The Big Revival” album. Clawson, David Lee Murphy and Jimmy Yeary penned “Til It’s Gone.” All of the men were present Tuesday at BMI where their publishing companies lavished them with praise and commemorative plaques to celebrate the occasion.

The writers had many thank yous to say to Chesney for recording their songs.

“Kenny is the soundtrack to our lives,” said McAnally. “The fact that he recorded any of my songs at all blows my mind. … I’m just so blessed I get to do this for a living.”

Chesney said he knew he wanted to record both songs as soon as he heard them.

“I had a vision of what I wanted (album) ‘The Big Revival’ to be,” Chesney said. “I didn’t want to do what I had done, and I didn’t want to do what everyone else was doing. I had a small target to hit.”

When McAnally played him “American Kids,” Chesney said he knew in seven or eight seconds that he wanted to record it.

“I thought it was a song that I could wrap my album around,” Chesney said. “You have no idea how much fun it is to sing on stage and I’m so happy that for the rest of my life I get to sing it.”

Forbes is out with their annual list of the highest paid musicians, and Kenny Chesney came it at number 22 with $44 million earned.

The country superstar owes much of his total to stadium shows, but has diversified into liquor with his Blue Chair Bay rum.

Chesney was only bested by two other country stars: Toby Keith at #10 with $65 million and Taylor Swift at #11 with $64 million.

Other country stars that finished behind Chesney included Jason Aldean at #24 with $37 million and Luke Bryan at #28 with $34 million.

Dr. Dre was the highest paid musician across all genres with $620 million, largely thanks to his sale of Beats headphones to Apple.

‘The Big Revival’ Just Misses #1 Spot on Billboard 200

Late last week it looked like Kenny Chesney was headed for number one on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart with The Big Revival, but Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga edged him out by 1,000 copies.

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s jazzy new duets album, Cheek To Cheek, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It’s the second No. 1 for Bennett and the third for Gaga.

The standards album, released Sept. 23 on Streamline/Interscope/RPM/Columbia Records, sold 131,000 copies in the week ending Sept. 28, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It also hits No. 1 on both the Jazz Albums and Traditional Jazz Albums charts.

There was a tight race for No. 1 on the Billboard 200, as three albums were vying for the pole position. Cheek To Cheek edges out Kenny Chesney’s also-arriving The Big Revival at No. 2 (130,000). Last week’s No. 1, Barbra Streisand’s own duets album, Partners, slips to No. 3 with 127,000 (down just 35 percent).

For Chesney, The Big Revival is his 12th top 10 effort and follows 2013’s No. 1 debut Life On a Rock (153,000 sold in its first week). On the Top Country Albums chart, The Big Revival comes in at No. 1 — Chesney’s lucky 13th leader.

Kenny Chesney’s new album The Big Revival is headed for number one on the Billboard 200 all-genre album chart:

Country superstar Kenny Chesney is heading for his eighth No. 1 album next week on the Billboard 200 chart. Industry forecasters suggest his new set, The Big Revival, may sell around 125,000 to 135,000 copies in the week ending Sept. 28. The Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville album is Chesney’s 15th studio effort, and was released on Sept. 23.

Not too far behind Chesney is Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s new duets album Cheek to Cheek. It might sell 110,000 to 120,000 copies. That sum might not be enough to capture the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200, but it should easily top the Traditional Jazz Albums chart.

The new Billboard 200’s top 10 will be revealed on Oct. 1.
