Kenny Chesney is traveling in style on his new 'Goin' Coastal' tour, riding in a state-of-the-art tour bus. But he still has fond memories of his first bus, which he nicknamed the 'Iron Lung.' Kenny says, "For my first eight years on the road I was in the same bus with the band and the crew. For the first two or three years, we had 14 people and 12 bunks! We would all take turns, swear to God, on who was gonna sleep on the couch, who was gonna sleep here. It was an old black Prevost bus and I actually enjoyed sleeping on the couch, because in the bunks the diesel would come through the air vents. That's why we called it the Iron Lung! That was the name of the bus." Though he spends a lot of time in the Caribbean when he's not touring, Kenny has also found a new place in Nashville after losing his home to last year's flood. Kenny explains. "I'm living somewhere else now, and if the place where I'm living now floods, we're all in trouble, because I'm living really high up!"

Swift, who has released three albums in her career, was delighted with the achievement and thanked her fans for helping her reach the milestone, "It's just sort of beyond my comprehension to get a plaque like that, and the fact the fans have done that much for me in such a short period of time is unreal, and I'm so excited and so thankful. Taylor is heading to Las Vegas today to make it to the ACM Awards where she is up for Entertainer Of The Year.
