Chesney Joins 50 Cent/kanye Album Battle

Country singer KENNY CHESNEY has blasted rival rappers 50 CENT and KANYE WEST for ignoring the fact his album is coming out at the same time as their latest discs. 50 Cent has vowed his album Curtis will outsell West's Graduation when the two discs are released on 11 September (07). Chesney - ex-husband of Renee Zellweger - is stunned the two rappers think the competition is just between them, because his new album Just Who I Am: Poets and Pirates is also released on the same day. Chesney says, "It's funny how with every record that comes out, we're aware of the urban (competition), and none of those acts acknowledge that I exist. "Until I have that No. 1 debut on the Top 200."

New and upcoming act Flynnville Train is now blasting Chesney for ignoring the fact that they also have their new, self titled debut album coming out that same day. Tommy from Flynnville Train says, “It's funny how Kenny Chesney is aware of the urban competition but fails to acknowledge that we exist, until we have our debut in the lower half of the top 200. In fact, we would like to challenge Kenny. If you outsell our record on the first day we vow to open 5 shows for you. However, if we outsell you, then you would have to wash our bus. Come on Kenny, don't be chicken”.
