Kenny Chesney rocks a cowboy hat while accepting the Groundbreaker Award onstage during the 2014 American Country Countdown Awards held at Music City Center on Monday (December 15) in Nashville, Tenn.
The 46-year-old singer was presented with the award by Vince Vaughn, who raved, “Few artists have single-handedly elevated country music to new heights. They are the groundbreakers. They are the artists who will never be forgotten. In stadiums and arenas all over America, Kenny’s been a game-changer in live music. Tour after tour, album after album, great song after great song, Kenny Chesney continues to thrill county fans and break ground as only he can.”
“God gave me an incredible gift, and that gift was, He put a song in my heart. And that song has taken me to places that I never dreamed it would. That gift has allowed me to connect with millions of people over the years in ways that I never thought was possible. Music allows us to find commonality and it validates all of our lives in ways that nothing else can, and that’s what I love about music,” Kenny shared during his acceptance speech.
