Kenny Chesney‘s platinum-selling project, Hemingway’s Whiskey, is one of the ACM Album of the Year nominees.  Kenny will release a brand-new project, Welcome to the Fishbowl, this June too, and he’s glad to see the full-length album surviving in an era where individual songs can be downloaded so easily.

“I still believe that makin’ a record, a whole record, for the fans, is important,” Kenny says.  “I hope that never goes away, somebody wanting to hear a piece of music.  It helps invest the audience into your music and into you, as a person.”

Kenny is the lead nominee at this year’s ACM Awards with nine nods total, including Entertainer of the Year. He’s set to perform with tour mate Tim McGraw on the show too.

The 47th Annual ACM Awards will be broadcast live from Las Vegas Sunday night at 8:00 Eastern time on CBS.  Reba and Blake Shelton return as hosts.
