He's been on the road doing big tours since 2001, but next year Kenny Chesney is taking the year off..
Kenny says it's weird not to be looking at stage designs, but you shouldn't make albums to service a tour, so he is going to focus on the music next year.
He said to the Hollywood reporter "You get to a point when you've made a lot of albums and you need to challenge yourself, to really make the record the focus, to ask yourself what you want to say ... and not just cut songs because they fit what people expect," he explained. "It's a lot harder to find those songs than you'd think, and writing takes time -- to think, to live, to be."
Kenny loves everything about touring, from the fans, his band, the entire pirate crew....
Don't worry... you know he will be back.
