Kenny Chesney Deprives Himself Of 'The Good Stuff' On His Birthday
Tour Training Takes Precedence Over Cake And Cocktails
Kenny Chesney had his 44th birthday yesterday, but the super fit star didn’t celebrate in the usual ways—or really at all.
Chesney is hard at work preparing for his Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw, which kicks off in June, and the country superstar tells One Country, “I’m in such training right now and I’m so anal about it to get ready for the tour that I’m not drinking any alcohol and I’m really watching what I eat. At some point, I’m going to have birthday cake and alcohol to celebrate my birthday, but I didn’t do it yesterday.
“I’ve got a lot of stuff coming up and I’m just trying to get back in the zone,” he adds, noting that the “stuff” includes shooting a new music video. But he won’t deprive himself forever. “Once I get some of that stuff done, towards mid-April, I wanna have a big piece of birthday cake and a couple of drinks to celebrate my birthday.”
Look for Chesney on the April 1 Academy of Country Music Awards, where his is nominated nine times. His new album is due out June 19.
+KENNY never got the recondition he deserves.
He has true talent and a voice all his own. He
can sing Tim McGraw under the table but who
was famous first? Good luck and best wishes to Kenny.
We all know how Nashville works!!!!!
