CRS is setting the stage for one of Country Music’s most iconic artists Kenny Chesney. The only Country Artist to appear on Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years for the last 13 years will appear as the featured artist during “The Artist Interview” at CRS 2023. Through a rare and exclusive Q&A session presented by BMI, Chesney will speak about his astonishing career and details about what’s on the horizon.
CRS/CRB Executive Director RJ Curtis comments, “We’re thrilled to have Kenny join us at CRS ‘23 in March. There’s so much to talk about. He’s been an important and consistently relevant artist for three decades, entertaining millions of fans with a dynamic show that brings his massive catalog of hits to life one stadium at a time. Only a very few artists — from any genre — can claim this achievement, and Kenny Chesney lives in that rare air. We can’t wait for this session at CRS.”
The eight-time Entertainer of the Year has been called “The King of the Road” by the Wall Street Journal for selling a million-plus tickets on each of his full-sized tours since 2003. With his HERE AND NOW 2022 playing to over 1.3 million people with 21 stadium shows – after three different tour postponements to respect shifting health protocols –Billboard’s Artist with the Most #1 Country Singles expands his commitment to making music that reflects country fans’ lives.
The East Tennessee songwriter/superstar has maintained an adventurousness that still includes traditional country (2022’s No. 1 classic waltz “Knowing You”), as well as groundbreaking musical alliances. His duet partners run a gauntlet of Willie Nelson, P!nk, the Wailers, Uncle Kracker, George Strait, Dave Matthews and Grace Potter. His creative partnerships continue with “Beer With My Friends,” his current single with Old Dominion, which caps a summer tour that’s seen several new Chesney records, old favorites, new stadiums, and a return to live music that’s powerfully renewed the players and the fans.
“Music is such an important piece of people’s lives,” Chesney says. “I believe music is medicine. It changes lives, makes a difference and is there every step of the way. I can’t wait to dig in and talk about all these songs, all these moments and the journey to how we got there.”
Kenny Chesney last appeared at Country Radio Seminar in 2020, when he received the Country Radio Broadcasters (CRB) Artist Humanitarian Award. Chesney was honored for his exceptional humanitarian efforts exhibited during his career.
The discussion featuring Chesney will take place during CRS 2023 (March 13-15, 2023), at the Omni Nashville Hotel.
