Kenny Chesney’s “Welcome To The Fishbowl” Debuts at #1

Kenny-Chesney-Album-300-2012

Kenny Chesney‘s Welcome To The Fishbowl album debuted today at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart with more than 193,000 albums sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. This is the 11th consecutive album of Chesney’s to debut at #1. If that doesn’t make him feel like a rockstar, then I don’t know what would.

Welcome To The Fishbowl also debuted at #2 on the all-genre Billboard 200 Chart. First-week sales of Welcome To The Fishbowl surpass the first-week sales of his last three album releases, including the platinum-selling, critically acclaimed Hemingway’s Whiskey, which produced four #1 singles and a top 5 song. ”This dramatic increase in sales is a real testament to the strength of his new music, as well as the continued momentum of his career at every level,” said Gary Overton, Sony Music Nashville Chairman & CEO.

Welcome To The Fishbowl has already produced one top 10 hit “Feel Like A Rock Star” with ‘Brothers of the Sun” Tour partner Tim McGraw, and his current single, “Come Over” is one of the fastest rising singles in his career. Album release week activities included a free, 75-minute concert directed for a live stream by Academy Award-winning director Jonathan Demme as part of the American Express “Unstaged” series, as well as performances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and The Today Show Summer Concert Series. Chesney wrapped the week with stadium shows in Nashville and Charlotte.

Next up, Kenny will take part in NBC’s Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular which airs Wednesday, July 4 from 9-10 pm ET.

The tour will kick off in Tampa Florida on June 2nd and pairs Chesney with longtime buddy, Tim McGraw. “We hadn’t even finished last year’s tour when we started working on this year, and what we visualized 9 months ago is a reality today,” Chesney enthused.

Performing to a lucky crowd comprised of family and music industry friends, Chesney tweaked both the big and small details of the show, ranging from color saturation of video clips to elaborate instrumentation. He also chatted casually with his small audience, sharing tour tales and song stories.
