OFFSTAGE: Kenny Chesney Already Has Decision Points

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

He is literally the man who has everything. Guitars, yachts, mansions, etc. So Kenny Chesney admitted that even his own mother has a hard time shopping for him. On the air last week with retiring WSIX/Nashville morning show host Gerry House, Chesney said all he really wants this year is his mom’s home-canned green beans. “Every year, my mom asks me what I want. This year, she asked if I wanted the new George Bush book [Decision Points], but I already ordered it on my iPad,” Chesney said. But I guess if all he truly wants for Christmas is the beans his mom and grandmother can (and a real good tan), then he sounds pretty easy to please. It does make you wonder what he’ll buy for the people on his list, though.
