The Boss Told Kenny Chesney To Take Time Off
You’ve probably seen or heard that Kenny Chesney is taking a break from touring in 2010. Things have just gotten too hectic for Kenny and he wants some time to travel, write, and reconnect with his family. Chesney says his decision came partly from some advice from Bruce Springsteen who told him, “Kenny, you can write half a song on a piece of paper, and you can put that piece of paper away in a drawer for five years, and you can go back to it, and that song will still be there. But life isn't like that. And whatever you're doing, don't miss your life, too,” according to Country Standard Time. Sage advice like that is why they call him The Boss. Woof.

Brad Paisley Says Green Acres Is The Place To Be
Brad Paisley tells The Boot that his two sons, Huck and Jasper, really enjoy life on their farm outside Nashville. Brad says he’s glad that he and wife Kimberly Williams Paisley can keep their sons out of the spotlight for the most part. "My kids don't go on the road very often; we spend most of our time here in Nashville on a farm. Huck and Jasper are very typical. Right now they're excited about the heavy equipment that's digging out an area of our farm. They love to go down and see the excavator and the bulldozer and watch all the different things that are going on at the site." Come on Brad, you know those boys are just trying to figure out how they can climb on that machine and start it up. They’re boys! Woof.
