Kenny Chesney proved he was king of the boy’s club at the Academy of Country Music awards on Tuesday with his third consecutive entertainer of the year award. The award featured a host of male country singers (there were no female singers nominated) – including George Strait, Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flatts and Tim McGraw.
During his acceptance speech, Chesney gave tribute to some of his country music heroes – including Strait and Keith Whitley.
In his acceptance, Chesney stated: “When I first started playing music, I was in college and I would go rent all my equipment and put it in the back of a pickup truck. The only thing I wanted to do was cut a record as good as Keith Whitley did, and I listened to that music over and over again.”
Note that he's not being honoured for creating good music or anything.....
