Kenny Chesney on Twitter: ‘Maybe Soon’
“Maybe one day — maybe soon,” Kenny Chesney tells Taste of Country about the possibility of taking hold of his own Twitter account. The ‘Come Over’ singer is one of the last country singers to avoid joining the online social media phenomenon — but for good reasons.
“I don’t have time,” Chesney adds candidly. “I’m running a company. I’m doing everything I’ve gotta do to do what I do.”
One major undertaking on the singer’s plate is his current all-arena headlining Brothers of the Sun tour with pal Tim McGraw. The two superstars kicked off the 25-date tour earlier this month, with dates scheduled through the end of the summer. Once he wraps the extravagant stage show at the end of August, Chesney does have tentative plans on how he will spend his downtime.
“I kinda want to travel,” Chesney says ironically. Despite being a global music superstar, the Tennessee native admits he hasn’t really experienced the world outside the United States. ”I haven’t been overseas very much. I want to see things I’ve never seen before”
The entertainer also plans to mend a part of his life he admits he has somewhat neglected in the last decade. ”I probably want to spend more time with my family,” says the hard-working singer. “In the last 10 years, that’s been put on the back burner.”
With the pending release of his new studio album, ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl,’ Chesney’s career shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The 12-song collection is the singer’s first under his brand new Blue Chair/Columbia co-venture with longtime label home Sony Music Nashville, and is promised to be his “most honest and authentic album” he has ever recorded.
‘Welcome to the Fishbowl,’ which will be released to digital outlets and traditional retailers on June 19, features the McGraw duet, ‘Feels Like a Rockstar,’ as well as the current chart-climber ‘Come Over.’ Click here to pre-order the album.
