Kenny Chesney’s inner CEO

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Leadership Skills

Country music singer-songwriter Kenny Chesney has 120 employees on the road with him every day, so he can’t afford to fool around.

On managing:

“I’m not that great with confrontation. But once I started to be OK with that, the better everybody’s life got. I try to talk to everybody as much as possible to clear the air. If you don’t clear the air, with that many people together on the road, it can be just a mess. I think it’s helped me as a person. I think it’s helped my business. It’s helped the morale out on the road, and it’s helped everybody communicate better.”

On hiring:

“I want to know about their family. I want to know what they do in their down time. I want to know what their dreams are. I have to know if, deep down, they’re a solid person and that they’re focused. And are they dependable? I don’t really have a lot of rules, but I need to know they’re dependable, and that they’re on time.”

— Adapted from “Corner Office: Kenny Chesney,” Adam Bryant, The New York Times.

I need to get this message to Kenny Chesneys Manager. My boyfriend and I bought the highest price VIP tickets available and we didn’t even get to see Kenny Chesney. This was inTampa, the first Stop of The Brothers of the Sun Tour. We had a very bad experience and are very upset and we think Mr. Chesney needs to know what happened and that his fans were not treated appropriately …VIP…total disappointment . This concert was to be a celebration for me since I had to have major back surgery the next week and we didn’t know if I would be able to walk after surgery. I think Mr. Chesney really needs to hear our story. We have never been so upset. Please help me get a message to his Manager in ref to the way his fans were treated. Very, very upset and very unhappy we didn’t get to enjoy the concert of a lifetime that we paid top dollar for. Please contact me or direct me in the right direction of whom I need to speak too. Thank you for your time.

Two VERY UPSET Kenny Chesney Fans,
Jill Beatty and Michael Bennett
