Kenny Chesney Mines More Gold And Platinum With Singles Certifications

Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney is earning more precious metal as 19 songs from across his career have received Gold, Platinum and Double-Platinum certifications. Songs receiving the heavy metal status include “Me And You,” “She’s Got It All,” “How Forever Feels,” “You Had Me From Hello,” “Noise,” “All The Pretty Girls,” “Setting The World On Fire,” and more.

The latest certs bring Chesney’s total to 32 song certifications. With five Multi-Platinum, 10 Platinum and five Gold albums just certified, every album Chesney recorded with Sony Nashville now also has precious metal certification.

“When I’m looking at a song, I’m looking at how true does it feel,” Chesney says. “I want things I’ve not already said, but also excite me musically. When I heard ‘You and Tequila,’ it so perfectly captured that addiction to people you know aren’t good for you; it never went to No. 1, but it’s double-platinum. Or ‘Noise,’ one of those songs in the moment nobody realized how badly it needed to be said, but I think the way the melody and the track felt, the way those words were – it’s become almost a purging when we do it live. My only measure is how the people respond when we sing these songs live. But seeing all this on paper, it blows my mind, and it makes me happy for all the songwriters who gave me pieces of their heart and their life, and for all the people listening who’ve found their own turning points, best times, hard truths and realizations in this music. This isn’t mine, but really theirs, because these certifications come from how people found themselves in the music.”
