Kenny Chesney Taking a Break Next Year
By on November 1, 2016
Kenny Chesney has been playing to sold-out stadiums and arenas for months on end, and his new album released Oct. 28, so it’s safe to say he’s been a little busy. The singer-songwriter tells Rolling Stone Country that he is planning on using 2017 to step back a bit and rest.
“It’s going to allow me to take a really authentic deep breath,” he says, referencing a year and a half on the road doing big shows. “Like my grandmother said, ‘Chocolate cake is great, but enough will make you sick.’ So we’re putting the cake away for just a little bit and then we’ll put it back out on the table.”
Though he’s not completely going dark — he’s got seven shows on the books — he says the time will be good for him to be able to be creative again. Touring and songwriting don’t mix well for the artist, he explains, which is part of the reason Cosmic Hallelujah’s release was pushed back from July to October.
