Kenny Chesney’s ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey’ Goes Platinum
Kenny Chesney better make a little more room on his walls at home, as his latest album, ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey,’ has gone platinum. By the album surpassing the one million sales marker, Chesney now has a total of 10 platinum albums to his credit.
Since its release, ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey’ has been cranking out hit after hit, including the No. 1 singles ‘Boys of Fall,’ ‘Somewhere With You,’ ‘Live a Little’ and his Grammy nominated duet with Grace Potter, ‘You and Tequila.’ The album’s fifth single, ‘Reality,’ is climbing the country airplay charts, where it currently sits just outside the Top 10.
Next year, Chesney will hit the road with pal Tim McGraw on the Brothers of the Sun trek. The tour is already breaking records with ticket sales, as fans have already purchased nearly 275,000 presale tickets, which is more than any other superstar’s previous initial on-sales. The tour will also feature Grace Potter and Jake Owen as the supporting acts. Click here for a complete list of dates where the tour will be stopping in the summer of 2012.
