As more and more people get outside this summer, it seems like popular country artist Kenny Chesney is in on the fun too.
The “Knowing You” singer posted an epic photo out on the water with white waves rushing behind him. He captioned the photo, “Hell of a day at sea and happy is as happy does.”
He’s even got John Madden beside him drinking something out of a red Solo cup. He is a former football coach and sportscaster. He was known for winning a Super Bowl with the Oakland Raiders while he was head coach. Now, instead of coaching and broadcasting, he’s enjoying a laid-back life on the water with Kenny Chesney.
Kenny Chesney once talked about getting to become friends with some huge names in the sports world.
“We have these people we look up to and care about in all these sports figures, well they have the same respect for people because they love music also and that’s something that I learned and it was really interesting. You have these people that you really respect and look up to as a child and a young adult and you become friends with them,” Chesney said while on “The Bobby Bones Show.”
Chesney has loved sports since he was a kid and his dad was a coach growing up. He worked on a documentary called “Boys of Fall” in 2010. Here he met some of his childhood stars like John Madden, Bobby Bowden, Nick Saban, and Brett Favre.
Live Performances and Music for Kenny Chesney
In addition to life on the water, Chesney is gearing up for more live performances. He will set out on a stadium tour next spring. The Here and Now: 2022 Stadium Tour will start on April 23rd at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
Chesney has had to realign his live performance schedule. He had to pause his 2020 Chillaxification Tour last spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re calling the tour Here And Now 2022, because when we get together, there is only the present – and it’s so electric and good, I know I don’t want it to end,” Chesney said in a statement, according to Rolling Stone.
Now, fans have something to look forward to for music next year. Something else the country singer is likely celebrating is one of his producers getting a huge honor. According to the Tennessean, Buddy Cannon was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame on July 13.
He had written songs for George Strait, Vern Gosdin, Mel Tillis, and Billy Ray Cyrus. He’s also co-produced nearly all of Kenny Chesney’s albums starting all the way back with his 1997 “I Will Stand.”
