After his mother gave him a guitar during freshmen year of college, Kenny Chesney had found his calling. While in school, Kenny began performing near campus and self-recorded his first album. The budding musician then moved to Nashville where he eventually signed with Sony BMG and began releasing hit records. Kenny has since become a touring sensation in the States, selling out most venues he plays.
