Kenny kicked off the big day at the Nashville ASCAP building, where co-writer Chris Stapleton was honored. Kenny was sporting a sling on his left arm following minor surgery to his shoulder to treat some slight pain. Kenny is reported to be doing well and is getting ready for his upcoming 2008 tour. With his right hand, Kenny accepted a gift from ASCAP, a colorful island display with cut-out characters reading "Kenny's Paradise." Later in the day, Kenny celebrated with the song's other co-writer, Ronnie Bowman, at BMI. Kenny told the crowd that he loved the song because, "It was a lot about my history and my past, with [the mix of] bluegrass and Southern rock. I believed this needed to be heard on the radio."
