I went to school at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City and played a Mexican restaurant free nights a week and I just played for tips tips. You know I was playing some songs that I had written in my apartment that nobody wanted to hear and then songs about my heroes and I would get paid.

The best night's would be a couple of hundred. You know what happens next like one of the things that need to happen for Kenny. Chesney okay what happens next is I graduated East Tennessee state and then I moved to Nashville to be a songwriter and and it just went from there I was. I always knew that I wanted to do this. What I'm doing now but I knew it might take a while but I was? I was engulfed in creating eating. I was engulfing songwriting. And that's where all this started. And then I went on the road in Nineteen ninety-three and I'm still on it just kind i. Don't you know people ask me all the time for you know. Can you give me some advice on how to make it in the back of my brain. I'm going Never GonNa make it because you don't do it to make it. You do do it just because that's what you do you know. And so. That's that's the best way. I can explain good advice but ashes of data all the way right there has to be some always. There's no I'm not saying it. It was all good moments because there was a lot.

How much of your roots is tied up? How much of your roots are tied up in the idea that you give a lot of your money? Money Away with success to some of the people who wouldn't normally get money from the star of the shows like I don't want to embarrass you here but you give away a ton of money to the people behind the scene so like explain to me how and why that came to be well we start. I started this thing every year. No I've got I'm out there on the road with a lot of people that work really hard and those guys they get there before the ship early in the morning and late late at night and I started this thing called merge lottery and we take one stadium show a month and I take all the all the money that I make that night and what that means is the from the t shirts the hats whatever the money we make that night and I give it we. We put all the names of everybody that works for me a Sombrero and I we shake it up whole at a name out of the hat and give all the money we make for the march that night. WHOA so the most that can wait a minute? You're talking about a quarter. Wait a minute you're talking about like a quarter million dollars aren't you. That's yeah we played the seat. The seahawks football stadium one year. And yeah the merchant would have been close to that maybe a little over that and the next week we pulled out a name and they got it you know but what they started doing is not taking the money themselves. They ended up dividing it out throughout the whole crew in the tour you know so I would have grabbed all I want to cowboys stadium holding onto that one. They spend a lot of money in Dallas. I want to keep that. So is it true that you shower three times a day. You don't like bars of soap. Why do I showered go to get up when I get up I shower and then after I work out before I start my day shower again and then I have to shower before I go to bed and I get? I like to feel clean when I go to bed with the soap though. Yeah but no soap always had this weird thing about soap. I can't explain it. Yeah let me ask you a question because I love body wash our talking my language But body wash as well. You're rich so this is different. Body washes expensive right. Talk Therapy Stress Relief Body wash going on the upper half of my body because then I could smell it then. LOWER-HALF I used some other body to body washes at have in the shower work and it also depends obviously like you share a couple of times a day maybe late at night instead of the stress. One lillies the sleep tireless. And you stop please. You have asked the only only a couple of questions the entire week of a guest. And you've just ask Kenny Chesney. Hey Give me information about how you shower. Also I have a follow up question that I asked invasive. How tell me about your shoring habits but then a follow up question defense? You're there were here. We're sitting next to Kenny. and He's join join the conversation a little bitter. He'll back there wasn't really a question kept talking about showering habit.
