After having performed live for millions of fans over his career, Kenny Chesney is set to be honoured for his touring success.
Despite taking 2014 off from the road, Chesney will receive the Groudbreaker Award at the inaugural American Country Country Countdown Awards. The award is given to an artist who has consistently pushed the boundaries of what is possible within the definitions of today’s country music. You might say Chesney’s stadium shows revolutionized the experience for a country music concert goer and his success on tour bring him in at number nine on Billboard’s list of the top live acts since 1990, the only country act inside the top eighteen.
The American Country Countdown Awards will air December 15th on FOX.
Kenny is also set to head back out on the road in 2015 in support of his latest album, The Big Revival. Curious what the star did with his time off? Check out the video from Chesney himself below!
