Hoping to see Kenny Chesney in concert soon? Better get a ticket this year or you’ll have to wait awhile! Kenny says he’s taking a break from the road in 2014.
“I love touring more than anyone in the world,” he tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I love the band, the crew, the whole team — and it’s weird to not be looking at next year’s stage design, but I shouldn’t make albums to service the tour. So I’m going to put the music first, dial it back and do the strangest thing in the world: not hit the road next summer.”
“We have so much fun out there … with the fans, the other bands … It’s summer camp with guitars and a great sound system,” he adds. “And when we hit that stage every night, and hear the crowd, that’s the best drug in the world. How you take a year off from that is hard; but music is the reason I do all of it, so right now, when I’m coming off an album that took me places I didn’t know I was gonna go, I think that’s what I should be exploring.”
What will he do with all that time off? Kenny says he’ll make the follow-up to the April 2013 album, Life On A Rock.
