KENNY CHESNEY RETIRING? NOT A CHANCE

Last year he made more money than any entertainer in any genre, with the exception of Prince. This year, he's already sold more tickets than any other act — 610,00 from January through June. But has Kenny Chesney ever contemplated parking the bus and quitting? "I'm still having a blast," Kenny told X Radio Networks, "because we have a very passionate fan base and a very driven fan base. I'm still having fun making records and doing what I'm doing. [But] I'm not gonna lie. There were some moments last year where I was like, 'I am mentally exhausted —I've been doing this 10-12 years and I have been so focused — I am tired,' 'cause I don't do anything halfway. I mean we go full blast — I can't just mail it in, no matter what I'm doing."
