In 1996, he dropped his singles titled “Me and You,” and a year later “I Will Stand” was published. He gained prominence when “Everywhere We Go,” was released in 1999.
Chesney had a narrow escape during the 9/11 terror attack in the US as he was scheduled to perform near the world trade tower but the show was canceled 7 days before.
He compiled the Greatest Hits album and released it in 2000 in which he added four new songs and updated versions of hit songs like “Back Where I Come From,” “Fall in Love,” and “The Tin Man.”
