Really? I guess I never thought of that. Kenny Chesney (although I LOVE his music) isn't "that type" of Country music, he's very much towards a Jimmy Buffet, beach-y sound. Honestly, he's well liked and well known, but you still have those people that don't really care for him here. The people who are most well known around the world, as far as Country music goes, are the ones who are Pop-Country. Again, Pop. Hence Tay Tay Swift, Lady A, even Rascal Flatts. Everybody knows Dolly Parton, Reba, Loretta Lynn (HOPEFULLY), but who really outside North America can say they love that kind of Country music or even Texas Country? Not many probably. I haven't met many (or any). Pop, Hip Hop, R&B, and barely Rock is what's the "in" thing for music industry these days. So for Kenny to be big outside of North America he'd have to change his sound just to be more well known, like Lady A and Swift. Which, I pray to God he won't.
