Kenny Chesney “Four” the Win

The Superstar Adds Another No. 1 to His Collection

Let’s just all agree right now: If Kenny Chesney sings it, it’s gonna be a hit.

Indeed, that statement is true of his latest single — “Save It for a Rainy Day” — which hit No. 1 on the Billboard country airplay chart, making it the fourth-consecutive No. 1 from his album The Big Revival and his 26th No. 1 on the chart.

Yes, you read that correctly — 26 No. 1s.

Which means Chesney is now tied with Alan Jackson and George Strait for the “second-most leaders in the chart’s 25 year history,” according to Billboard.

That’s a lot of No. 1s and more importantly, a lot of royalty checks.

So who could have possibly beaten these three icons to claim the top spot?

That would be Chesney’s pal and former tour mate Tim McGraw, who leads the chart with a whopping 27 No. 1s.

Still, with all the hits and special songs Chesney has in his catalog, “Save It for a Rainy Day” is a very important one for him.

“That song is maybe most important because it reminds you to live right now and not let things get you down to where you miss how good life can be,” the singer said in a statement.

And no matter many hits he amasses, the feeling of “No. 1″ never seems to get old — especially the feeling of consecutive No. 1s.

Chesney says, “I’m thrilled we have four in a row, because it’s connecting in a good way.”
