He then got picked up by BNA Records, a country music division of RCA, and issued his breakthrough album ''All I Need to Know'' in 1995.

Highly successful CountryMusic artist. Born in 1968, Chesney began performing in his teenage years, before working at clubs before signing a deal with Capricorn Records in 1993. Capricorn had no experience in the country music field, however; the album received minimal promotion, its singles tanked, and the label closed its Nashville branch.

* AdvertisedExtra: The Wailers on "Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven" their part is cut out of the radio edit, but they still got chart credit (from the second week at #1 onward, at least).
** Inverted with his duet vocal on RebaMcEntire's "Every Other Weekend", on which he sings a good portion of the song. The song first charted as an album cut credited to both artists. When it was officially released as a single, the radio edit had Skip Ewing singing Kenny's parts (although most stations just played the Chesney version anyway), and it was credited to "Reba [=McEntire=] with Kenny Chesney or Skip Ewing" for one week, then just Reba after that.
