Biography


Country music singer Kenny Chesney, who was a Boston Red Sox fanatic, began his life in a very small town. His school teacher father David Chesney and hairdresser mother Karen Chandler sent him into a small elementary before he attended Gibbs High School and later studied at East Tennessee State University, majoring in marketing. He once joined the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity while working several jobs despite his activities in college. He previously worked as a valet parking, telemarketing, and mail sorter in his spare time.

Kenny, who was born Kenneth Arnold Chesney on March 26, 1968, in Knoxville, Tennessee, USA, had been passionate about music since he was just a kid. Nevertheless, his desire for music was started after he got his first guitar as a Christmas present when he was 19. Kenny's biggest musical influence was, in fact, the America's most successful hit maker Conway Twitty.
