The most bumbling Kenny Chesney quotes that are proven to give you inner joy
One of these days we're gonna have to grow up, have to get real jobs and be adults, someday, just not today.
it's a smile, it's a kiss, it's a sip of wine ... it's summertime!
There's something to be said for useless days.
You know, those days when you have nothing to do and all day to do it ... Trust me, a beach and a bottomless drink may not cure the world's problems but it can really get your head in the right place. Those are my favorite kind of days.
Southern girls are God's gift to the entire male population.

Her little ring is a little thing, but its all I could afford Now she's mine, all mine till the day I die, and I never wanted nothin' more

One word, that's all you said and something in your voice caused me to turn my head. Your smile just captured me.

Never. When the bus turned a million miles - that's a lot of traveling. It's really cool to think about. I'm blessed to have traveled a million miles on a tour bus.
I'm uncomfortable with being famous. I hate it. But I love making music. I love getting paid to do it, and I love getting on my boat after I get paid to do it.
[Music] is the one thing that connects the dots in all kinds of ways.
No matter how you were brought up, no matter what your religious background or political beliefs, people still love to sing along with somebody.
I do sing about drinking, but it's in a party way.
I don't sing about drinking in a drowning-my-sorrows way, like in George Jones's "If Drinking Don't Kill Me (Her Memory Will)."
My fans get enough politics on TV every day.
I want them to think for themselves. I don't want them to listen to me.
First and foremost, I consider myself a songwriter.

I once asked my grandpa, "Are you a Republican or a Democrat?" He said, "I'm a Democrat, but I'm saving up to be a Republican."

Music's my medication.
I have friends who have a normal family, kids and a dog, and I think I would blow my brains out. It's fine for them. But I'm such a free spirit, I feel more alive when I've got somewhere to go.
Social topics may hit too close to home for people, but then again, if you pull a heartstring, then that's what country music is. It's not just songs about getting drunk and leaving your girl.
Don't blink. You just might miss your babies growing like mine did. Turning into moms and dads next thing you know your 'better half' Of fifty years is there in bed. And you're praying God takes you instead. Trust me friend a hundred years goes faster than you think So don't blink.

It's tough enough to have a relationship, and it hurts enough to have it not work.
Every Christmas my hometown radio station would always play 'Christmas In Dixie' by Alabama. I always remember lovin' that song.
My elementary school is still there [in Luttrell, Tennessee].
I drop by my high school. It's a small community. I say this every night before I do the song 'The Boys of Fall' in the show - I'm really happy about where I grew up and how I grew up.
Record labels today are much less patient: Artists have a bad record, and they're gone.
I don't really lose my temper that much, but when somebody mistreats my guys, I just go crazy.
In 21 years there are a lot of ups and downs.
There are melancholy times. There are sad times. There are happy times. There are unsure times. There are life lessons.
Being famous is uncomfortable because I grew up very simply.
Everything revolved around friends, family, church and sports.

She has been through a lot in her life. She has had a couple of divorces. When I was in high school she was a single mother. That's when I learned to do my own laundry.
I like to rock and roll, but I'm a mushy guy, too.
I want to be the guy that all the girls love and all the guys want to hang out with.
The title [of the album 'The Big Revival']alone fit what I was feeling.
It defined what I was going through. That year off was a time to revive, to reset, to reclaim, to revitalize and to re-focus. It was a revival of how I made music, how I presented it and my connection with the fans.
I took a complete year off the road, but a big part of that year was making 'The Big Revival.' I needed that down time just so I could concentrate. The one thing that starts it all for us is the music. That's what you create in the studio. That's where the magic happens.
There's this emotion we all feel of being overwhelmed at times, feeling that you can't get ahead. For me it's self-imposed because I'm so driven and I'm always going from project to project.
I hate album covers where people are just smiling so big.
It's like a neon sign that says PLEASE COME BUY ME.

There are only so many hours you can sit on the bus and watch TV or play basketball or whatever we do to pass the time before we go out onstage.
It's funny to see my friends going through that middle-age thing about losing their hair. I went through it in college. They all say, "Oh my God, I'm getting old. I'm never getting laid again." Shut up. Yes, you are.
I can't see going onstage wearing a long-sleeve shirt in the dead of summer.
I work out hard during the day with a trainer who monitors everything I put in my mouth when I'm on tour. When I first got a record deal, you can tell by my early album covers that working out wasn't that much a part of my life.
I think it is possible to be friends with employees, but there has to be a respect level where you're not taken advantage of, either.
I work hard but I play hard.
I can stay on my boat for a few weeks if I have a guitar and a girl and a Bob Marley CD. After that, I've got to move around.
