Pop Singer/Songwriter Chesney Claire was born July 10, 2001 in Lake Charles, Louisiana. She was named after country Music icon, kenny chesney. First vocal lesson was at the age of 9 with Tony Orlando's Band in Branson, MO. At age 11 she was taking vocal lessons from Chubby Checker and his band. She graduated from Bell City High School in Bell City, Louisiana in 2019. Right after graduation, Chesney moved to Branson, Missouri to work and ultimately begin her music career.
With the help of Music Producer Rich Brown and Atlantis Recording, Chesney would successfully record and release 6 cover singles. While in Branson, Chesney's talents caught the eye (and ears) of several Las Vegas producers and songwriters. In March of 2020, Chesney and her "Momager" Kim Hebert found themselves moving across the country to "Sin City", (Las Vegas) in order to be closer to more industry professionals. Immediately upon moving to Vegas, Chesney provided vocals for two original songs that were recorded and released. Mid 2020 (amongst COVID) proved to be the perfect opportunity to write music. With 47 original songs under her belt, she flew to Orlando, FL with a local Vegas producer and had her 1st original single, "15 Candles" perfected by Producer Tim Coons (Pres. of Cheiron Music Group/Original Producer of The Backstreet Boys). "15 Candles" was released June 12, 2020.
Soon after "15 Candles" was released, Chesney began working on her next release, "Moving On".
By September of 2020 Chesney started making preparations to release "Moving On", but Industry Awards poured in and demanded her attention. In 2020 alone, Chesney was nominated for an Independent Music Award for her Michael Jackson cover of "BAD". She was also nominated for Best Upcoming Artist at the Las Vegas Music Awards, and she won Female Artist of The Year at Indie Star Radio in Hollywood, California.
Chesney chose December 18, 2020 to release "Moving On" (to acknowledge both Brad Pitt's and Billie Eilish's birthdays).
Chesney's single "Hours" was released February 1, 2021 and "Come Alive" was properly released right after the pandemic (May 14th 2021). Chesney released "Distracted" in 2021. Chesney started 2022 out right by the release of a song she wrote herself, produced herself, and directed her Official Music Video, "Not In The Mood".
