Kenny Chesney Sells Out, Again
You think he’d be used to it by now, but once again Kenny Chensey has managed to sell out a show at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, this time in just eight minutes.
With fans clearly eager to see his material live Last.fm Trends looks at what songs they want to see, as well as the other acts his fans are clamoring after.
Hemingway’s Whiskey might have been doing well on radio, but so far that hasn’t translated into plays for Chesney’s latest effort. Many of its songs haven’t broken the 1,000 listeners mark, with lead single “The Boys Of Fall” a notable exception. Even then, just 3,588 Last.fm listeners have been scrobbling the song since it dropped this summer, playing it an average of five times each.
That wouldn’t be so bad but compared to older hits like “The Good Stuff,” which picked up 2,211 listeners in the last seven days, it doesn’t feel like his new material has hit the spot just yet.
The bands his fans have been playing too seem to be going through a similar patch, with classics outdoing new material. For Dierks Bentley it’s his breakout single “What Was I Thinkin’,” which bests his new material, by almost twice the listeners, while Montgomery Gentry‘s “Something To Be Proud Of” and “Hell Yeah” top their chart, both more than five years old now.
Tim McGraw‘s recent material comes off the best, with his 2009 track “Southern Voice” sitting astride a well-mixed top ten. Well done sir.
