While there are haters that can’t stand country star, Kenny Chesney, and his legions of loyal fans…it’s simply hard to argue with his success. Kenny has sold more concert tickets that The Rolling Stones, U2 and Bruce Springsteen.

Since he graduated to a mega-star in 2003, Kenny has sold 9.8 million concert tickets, grossing a cool $608.6 million in sales.
But it’s the little moments with the sun and sand that recharge the ‘Back where I come from’ crooner. In the most recent issue of People Magazine, Kenny opens up about the moment recently that changed his life and inspired a song on his brand new album, Life on a Rock. “Sometimes things happen that just stop you in your tracks, and they change you,” says Chesney, 45. “And that’s what’s happened to me.

Foxboro, Mass has become the official ‘Chesney final tour-stop’ typically closing out his mega-summer tours with a 2-day concert in the Boston suburb.
Now, Kenny is extending his hand to those that were so tragically affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. Chesney has started, Spread the Love, a foundation that will be working with Boston Medical Center to help those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings. The fund will assist victims with medical bills and help fund expensive surgeries and prosthetics that so many were forced to need after the bombings injured hundreds.
Aside from starting the foundation with a donation from himself, Kenny will also be donating ALL sales from a new single, Spread the love, which features The Wailers, to the fund. “It’s hard to imagine a world where taking your children to school, going to the movies or witnessing something as iconic as the Boston Marathon is a dangerous thing to do,” Chesney says. “For me, I want to help give these people as much of their lives back as possible, but I’d also like to counteract some of the negativity in the world… Remind people that there are more good people out there, and it’s up to us to ‘Spread the Love.” Read the rest of this entry »
