Chesney logs 24th consecutive top10 hit
Wednesday, May 14, 2008
– "Better As A Memory" broke into the top 10 on the Billboard/R&R Country Chart, and that marks Kenny Chesney's 24th straight Top 10, making it the longest consecutive run of Top 10 hits since 2000. Tim McGraw held the previous mark.
"I just know how psyched I was when I got that first Top 10 hit," Chesney said. "Beyond that, you don't think about how many... you just hope there's gonna be another one. I've been very lucky: some of the best writers in the whole world let me record some of their very best songs, and I've written a few that hit people as well... but the record, wow, that's pretty cool."
Chesney recently has been in the top as well with "Shiftwork," his duet with George Strait, "Never Wanted Nothing More and "Don't Blink."

Now, life's purpose is described as much more internal than external. Call it trading that pirate flag for a little more mindfulness. ...
Kenny Chesney's "Song for the Saints" is a step in the right direction for the popular country star. Inspired by the Hurricane Irma disaster, which hit Chesney personally as it destroyed a house he owned in the U.S. Virgin Islands, these songs are more serious and heartfelt than typical Chesney music.
Best of all is "Love for Love City," a reggae duet with Ziggy Marley incorporating steel drums into an inviting island mix. It's followed by a cover of Lord ...
