Kenny Chesney Tells EW He Is Taking A Break
September 16, 2009 at 9:05 AM (PT)
BNA/NASHVILLE's KENNY CHESNEY sat down with ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY this past weekend and told them that he plans to take a break from touring in 2010. CHESNEY insists that he is not quitting, just taking "a short pause." This will make his SEPTEMBER 19th show in INDIANAPOLIS the last big blowout before he takes a well-deserved breather. CHESNEY has played for at least one million fans every year since 2004, making him the biggest ticket seller in NORTH AMERICA this decade.
When asked why he decided to push the pause button and what he plans to do in his off time, CHESNEY said "...then you realize that at some point you’re missing a part of your life. My life has been a lot about parking lots. I need to recharge creatively, and get off the clock of having to be somewhere just because, and having to keep juggling all these things. And people needing answers. I just felt like this year it finally hit me that I need to get reconnected with my family. I wanna do some things that I’ve never gotten to do, like see other parts of the world, write some more songs."
