Kenny Chesney is ending another record-setting summer on tour with the news that he now has 10 platinum albums. Kenny’s Hemingway’s Whiskey was certified platinum by the RIAA for selling more than one million units. The album has produced three No. 1 hits as well as “You and Tequila,” Kenny’s duet with Grace Potter, which is currently at No. 3 on the charts and has been certified gold.
The news of Kenny’s platinum milestone comes just after he wrapped his 2011 Goin’ Coastal Tour. Selling more than 1.3 million tickets, the tour is one of the year’s biggest and included more than 60 shows. Kenny co-headlined Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas over the weekend, with acts like Lady Gaga, Jay-Z and Cold Play.
Kenny will release “Reality” as the fifth single from Hemingway’s Whiskey on October 3. The song was co-written by Brett James, with whom Kenny has penned a number of hits, including “Keg In The Closet” and “Out Last Night.” Kenny is also nominated for four CMA Awards.
