The leader of the No Shoes Nation takes his massive “Chillaxification Tour” on the road in 2020 as one of the top performers of the previous decade, having sold north of $608 million in the 2010’s alone.

Kenny Chesney’s got a drive, work ethic, and determination to not just show his fans a good time but make sure they get their bang for the buck, checking sight lines and sound quality before every show.

“Kenny is one of the most engaging artists in the history of country music, and it’s been a pleasure to be a part of his career since the very beginning,” says agent Mike Betterton of Paradigm Talent Agency. 

“He sets a high bar with his songwriting, but it’s his ability to connect with his audience that moves legions of fans and makes him larger than life.

“Working with Kenny has taken me to places I never would have dreamed of going and we still have the same core team that we had in the beginning. When Kenny wins, we all win.”

Also like Swift, he’s part of the family of TMG touring artists booked by Louis Messina. However, Chesney’s responsible agents for most of his career have been Paradigm Talent Agency’s Mike Betterton and Dale Morris & Associates founder Dale Morris, who sold the company to Paradigm earlier this year. The team is rounded out by manager Clint Higham.
