Kenny Chesney wordt binnenkort onderscheiden met BMI’s President Award. De 64ste BMI Country Awards, die erkenning geeft aan de top songwriter, publisher en songs in het country genre, wordt op 1 november gehouden in BMI’s Nashville kantoor. Het eerbetoon is gereserveerd voor songwriters die, volgens BMI, duidelijk en diepgaand de entertainment industrie hebben beïnvloed.
“Kenny Chesney is first and foremost a songwriter,” says Williams. “Not only has he earned the respect of the songwriting community, but he has also developed into a top-notch recording artist who re-wrote the concert touring experience by selling out stadiums year after year. He is a friend to up-and-coming artists and songwriters and is as inspiring as he is talented. It is time to salute him for a career that has brought so much to so many, and is far from over”.
