I believe it is now safe to say that the year spent away from the road paid off for Kenny Chesney!
It’s been 20 years since his first studio release, In My Wildest Dreams, and now Kenny can call The Big Revival his 13th #1 atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. In fact, Chesney’s 17th studio album nearly topped the all-genre Billboard 200 chart as well, falling just behind Tony Bennet and Lady Gaga’s Cheek to Cheek. Kenny’s total of 13 ties him with Alan Jackson and Garth Brooks at third overall, trailing only Tim McGraw(15) and George Strait(16) in #1 Country albums in the SoundScan era(since 1991).
The Big Revival, which was released September 23rd, can be purchased here. Chesney’s current single, “Til It’s Gone”, is getting radio play now and the album’s lead single, “American Kids”, became Kenny’s 23rd #1 single back in July. Check out the music video below!
