We forget sometimes that these huge country artists were once kids…. and most of these kids lived a normal childhood before they were big celebrities! Kenny Chesney is one of those and he recalls what the Fourth of July growing up and how it was in for him. He says, “You know what? I was usually playin’ little-league baseball on the Fourth of July. You know, I was big into sports, and the summertime in east Tennessee consisted of playin’ baseball, and that’s what I did on the Fourth of July. And they had a big fireworks display after all the games, and I was usually, you know, tryin’ to win the affection of some little girl over at the concession stand. And, you know (laughs), things don’t change very much!”
