It pays to work for Kenny Chesney…literally. Although his Chillaxification tour has been postponed until 2021, the country star announced that he’s keeping all of his employees on the payroll through this year at least.

Kenny told the LA Times,

“I have 120 employees. Thank God I don’t have to let anybody go this year. Now, if we don’t play the next two or three years, it’s going to change the dynamic of my life. And I’m not gonna lie, it’s expensive.”

When asked how much it would cost, he said he didn’t want to get into numbers but that it was a lot of money. He added that he had to choose between living how he’s used to or helping out his people. He chose his people.
