CHESNEY PACKS 'EM IN

Who was the biggest draw in country music in 2004? According to Pollstar, it was Kenny Chesney. The superstar sold 1,206,946 tickets this year, placing him second only to Prince as the year's second most attended tour in any genre. "I hate that all the people coming out to see me this summer might be thinking they weren't part of the biggest thing in my life, because I try to make sure people can afford to bring a date to our shows," said Kenny. "To me, I'm here for the long haul, for the fans and trying to give them what I remember wanting. But at the same time, they helped make this tour so huge - and I want them to know that, because they're the reason we do this.'
