Kenny Chesney - Kenny Chesney Noted '30 Things' To Become Better Person

Kenny Chesney, the American country-musician, has spoken about 'straightening out' his career and how he attempted to make himself a better person. Kenny Chesney, who performed on 'The Today Show' in New York City on Friday (17th June 2011), explained how he became more honest as a songwriter after 'becoming himself'.
During a candid interview with The Boot, Chesney said, "I remember lying in bed awake in the middle of the night, thinking of things off the top of my head. I had a notepad and I wrote down 30 things to make myself better just off the top of my head, and the next day I started to do that. No matter what I was doing I would think". Kenny explained how he had released a 'Greatest Hits' album but 'nobody knew who he was', adding, "They knew the songs, but they didn't know me. I realized that I wanted to get better in every way. As a person, as a friend, as a songwriter, as a musician, as an artist, record producer, you name it". The 43-year-old, who has produced over 30 top-ten singles on the US Billboard Country Songs chart, is currently working on a new studio album. His last record, 'Hemingway's Whisky', sold 183,000 copies in its first week of release in September 2010.
Kenny Chesney was honoured by the Country Music Association with 'Entertainer of the Year' in 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2008.
