Kenny Chesney‘s first tour bus — affectionately named Moby — recently hit the million-mile mark on the interstate between his shows in St. Louis and Des Moines, Iowa. It’s still part of the caravan of buses and tractor trailers on Kenny’s The Big Revival tour. Kenny bought the bus before he hit it big, so it was a big gamble for him to make such a big investment.
Kenny explains, “It was a used Silver Eagle when I bought it — and the bank had no business lending me the money ‘cause all I owned was a little pickup and my guitar. But I knew if I owned my bus, we could keep doing this, keep bringing the music to the people!”
Members of Kenny’s tech crew travel on Moby these days, but the bus still means a lot to the country superstar. He even wrote a song about the vehicle called “If This Bus Could Talk” that’s included on Kenny’s latest album, The Big Revival.
