KENNY: NEW KING OF THE ROAD?

Kenny Chesney is on track to become country's top touring artist of all time.

The signs are all pointing in that direction, according to Billboard magazine. Currently, country's top-grossing all-time act is George Strait, with concert sales reaching a whopping $267 million. But Kenny has already surpassed $183 million since he began headlining a few years ago. The numbers are only going to get bigger with this year's tour, as Kenny has added nine large-capacity stadiums to his concert schedule, including NFL stadiums in Boston, Nashville and Detroit. Kenny's concert promoter Louis Messina boils down Kenny's amazing concert success to one simple factor: "He gives the people their money's worth."
