Kenny Chesney Embraced Island Life

Despite being one of the biggest musicians on the planet, Kenny Chesney liked to unwind and take it down a few notches on the island of St. John. As part of the Virgin Islands, St. John offers all the Caribbean tourist vibes one might expect, as that is what the area is known for.

For someone like Chesney, this island escape offered him much more than your usual tourist traps. Chesney embraced island life, first as a visitor, and eventually as a homeowner. He may have platinum albums and millions of fans who adore him and his music, but, he was never too good to make friends with island locals. After so many years, they have clearly embraced him as well.

As Chesney says goodbye to his dear friend, it’s a time to mourn, but also a time to celebrate a kind soul whose creativity had a profound impact on Kenny Chesney, and that is saying a lot when you consider how successful he is as an artist.
