Kenny Apologizes to His Mom for “Disappearing On Her”

“The people I was closest to, I’ve also had this indefinable sense of disconnect with,” Kenny says.

Kenny Chesney is connecting with fans like never before on this summer's Brothers of the Sun Tour with Tim McGraw.

But Kenny tells The Tennessean that the closer he gets to fans, the farther he has drifted from those closest to him.

“In the last 10 years of my life, the people I was closest to, I’ve also had this indefinable sense of disconnect with,” he says.

"I had a long talk with my mother this past Christmas and told her I was sorry for disappearing on her, and that was a hard, tough, good conversation to have.

"It wasn’t that I was intentionally disappearing, I was just busy. And she and all of them knew that. But I got to a spot in my life where that’s not OK.”

Kenny deals with those feelings in a song called "While He Still Knows Who I Am" on his new album, Welcome to the Fishbowl.
