Chesney grew up in
Luttrell, Tennessee (the birthplace of Chet Atkins) surrounded by country music, but listening to "everything from old Keith Whitley
and Ricky Skaggs bluegrass records and
George Jones to
Lynyrd Skynyrd and
"No matter how good a song is, I just can't make it believable if my heart's not a hundred percent into it, and
ultimately that's what I have to go on," he explains of his arduous song-screening process. "I've passed on songs that I knew would be hits and later were big hits by other artists. But that's okay, because I know they wouldn't have been hits for me, because my heart wouldn't have been in them."

"I'm not one of these guys who can sit here and
tell you that since I was four years old I knew I wanted to be a country
singer," Chesney laughs. "I think it's often b.s. when people
say that anyway. To be honest, I never dreamed about being a singer as a
kid. Never once gave it a thought. I was mainly just growing up and
playing sports. I didn't know what I wanted to do until I was in college
at East Tennessee State in Johnson City. "Even then," he adds,
"it wasn't like I just woke up one day and decided, I'm gonna be a
country singer!' It just happened, just evolved into what I do. I was in
college, I got a guitar, I learned a lot about it. Then all of the sudden
I'd written a few songs, then I was out playing clubs and making a
little money here and there. And ya know, about another year after that
I was doing it all the time. It wasn't till I got out in the clubs that
anyone ever said to me, 'Man, you really oughta try to do something with
Kenny Chesney became a fixture at prestigious
Johnson City area venues – a Mexican restaurant called Chuckie's
Trading Post and Quarterback's Barbecue. "The scene up there then
was mostly blues, rock, and folk," he recalls. "I was about
the only one doing George Jones and
Hank, Jr. I got to where I had a
pretty good following."
An awakening of sorts came when he went into the
Classic Recording Studio in Bristol, Virginia. Backed by several
musicians he knew from college who are now the core of
band, he recorded an album's worth of songs he'd written. When he
pressed up a thousand copies and sold them all at his shows and made
enough to buy a new Martin guitar, he realized he was onto something.
Setting out to meet as many people in the business as
he could, Kenny Chesney made one steadfast ally: Clay Bradley,
head of publisher/writer relations at BMI. After countless turndowns by
publishers, Bradley, in 1992, set up an audition with Acuff-Rose, one of
Music City's oldest and most venerated song mills. Chesney came out of
the audition with a songwriter's contract. A year or so later, an
appearance one night at a songwriter's showcase led to a recording
contract with Capricorn Records, which had recently started a country
division. "The whole Capricorn deal was a very big emotional roller
coaster ride," Chesney remembers. "Of course, for that matter,
the whole music business is the biggest roller coaster ride in the
"I'd be lying if I told you there wasn't a lot of
frustration at first because I wasn't getting much airplay and was kind
of perceived as an independent artist," Chesney acknowledges.
"But my real goal in this business is to treat people good and
build the kind of relationships so I can stay around a long time. Ten or
even twenty years from now, if I'm still lucky enough to be having hits,
or even if I'm not, I still would like to be able to go out and tour all
"Well, I don't know how long the good Lord's
gonna let me be in this music business, or even be this successful at
it," he adds with a warm, measured smile. "So while I'm here I
want to enjoy every minute of it."
