Country singer Alana Springsteen shares Kenny Chesney’s advice that’s ‘stuck’ with her: ‘I’ll never forget’

Country singer Alana Springsteen revealed the unforgettable advice that Kenny Chesney gave her before she launched her career.

In an interview with Fox News Digital, the 22-year-old musician, who released her debut album “Twenty Something” last month, recalled that she had “gotten advice from so many of my heroes” but some words of wisdom from Chesney stood out.

“I’ll never forget talking to him backstage at his show,” Springsteen remembered. “One of the things he told me was like, ‘Don’t be in a rush. It’s so easy to get ahead of yourself and kind of like want that instant gratification, that instant success.'”

She continued, “But he was like, ‘Build it like this. Start at this core group and one step at a time, take it to the next level and carry your fans with you. ’”

“There’s one of his songs that’s been my favorite forever called ‘I’m On Fire,’ and I just did a little cover of it for Sirius XM,” she added. “When I went into the office, I’d stripped it down, like did an acoustic version, so I will always be inspired by his music. But I never want it to seem like I’m taking that name and using it.”

“I’m making a name for myself.”
