Chesney’s Real Good Tan Goes Gold

Kenny Chesney’s island-themed holiday album All I Want For Christmas Is a Real Good Tan has been certified gold, for shipments of more than 500,000 copies. Chesney’s mother and aunt are featured on the album, along with Willie Nelson and Alabama’s Randy Owen. “When you first spend Christmas in the islands, it’s a little weird to see palm trees strung with Christmas lights, Christmas trees growing in pots, Santa in shorts,” Chesney said. “But once you get used to hearing Bing Crosby with the ocean breaking, putting on sun screen when it’s sunny and 85 degrees, it’s pretty cool.” 12/5/03
