Kenny Chesney will be taking it easy in 2017. He told “Rolling Stone Country,” the time off will allow him to take a “really authentic deep breath.” He said, “Like my grandmother said, ‘Chocolate cake is great, but enough will make you sick.’ So we’re putting the cake away for just a little bit and then we’ll put it back out on the table.” Chesney won’t completely disappear next year. He has a few shows booked, including the Tortuga Music Festival.
