Warner Music Group and Warner Music Nashville were thrilled to welcome eight-time ACM winner and CMA Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney with open arms to the Warner Music family. His music music will be released on the Blue Chair Records/Warner Bros. Records label.
For a young man from East Tennessee with a ton of aspirations, Chesney has been dubbed “The King Of The Road” by The Wall Street Journal and “The People’s Superstar,” by the Los Angeles Times. He has sold over 30 million albums, has 30 No. 1s, and too many sold-out stadium tours to count! Chesney was also nominated for the 2018 Country Album of the Year Grammy Award, which Chris Stapleton took home for “From A Room: Volume 1.”
“It is a big deal to change labels,” said Chesney. “But when you hear Max, Espo, and Cris Lacy talk about music, about what it means and does, when you hear that passion, you can’t help but get fired up. To me, music is only complete when it gets to the fans and becomes part of their lives. The people at Warner understand my commitment to that idea, and they’re just as committed to those ideals as I am.”
“Kenny Chesney embodies the relentless pursuit of artistic freedom and expression,” said WMN Chairman & CEO John Esposito. “An unapologetic free spirit, he has built a career on perseverance, drive, innovation, and most especially, great songs. Everything he does is inspired. It is with deep respect and honor that we welcome Kenny to Warner Music Nashville. We couldn’t be more excited to work with him and his team.”
“Kenny’s not only a country music icon, but an American superstar, who’s still hungry to write, record, and perform amazing music that moves millions of people,” said Warner Music Group CEO, Recorded Music Max Lousada. “The fact that he has chosen Warner Music as his new label home is a huge testament to the culture created by Espo and his team, who have made our Nashville operation a magnet for both emerging talent and established artists. I join Espo in welcoming Kenny into the Warner family, and we’re all looking forward to amplifying his success and taking his music to fans across the globe.”
