Chesney to take off 2010

Tuesday, September 15, 2009 – Don't look for Kenny Chesney's annual summer pilgrimage in 2010. At least that's what Chesney told Entertainment Weekly.

Chesney said his final stadium show of the 2009 season, on Sept. 19 in Indianapolis, will be his last big gig before taking a breather. "I'm not quitting," he said. "It's just a short pause. The last couple of years I've been on an empty tank. And that's gotta change."
