No he's not mason even he said I'm 5ft 6 on a good day which means he thinks he's under 5ft 6 not over it

Stood right next to him at Saints training camp. 5'5" is being nice! My 11 year old was actually taller. Nice guy though!

I went to college with Roman Gabriel who was 6'4" tall and he frequently visited our fraternity house so I knew he was really that tall. When they had parents day for the football players it was obvious that his mom was about 4'11" and his dad about 5'4" tall. So I believe Janiece is wrong about her assumption and ekt is probably right about height being a recessive gene.
ekt said on 11/Feb/14
it depends on all family, not just mom and dad. people assume that children will be their parents height, which is flat out WRONG!!!!! If kenny and renee have tall family members, their kids can end up tall. Height is a recessive gene, not a direct gene
Tommy said on 5/Jan/14
More like 5,4 or 5,5
Janiece said on 2/Jun/13
What?! He's so short. If he had a child with Renee, they would have a small child.

He maybe 5'6" or so.
Hater said on 22/Jun/11
5'5 in heels maybe

Seen him a few times in Franklin, TN. He's probably 5'5" tops. However, he carries himself well so someone may think he's up to 5'7".

Jack misinterpreted my April 4th post. I have confidence, maturity, etc... and all I was saying was that I would rather be deemed as having "little man" syndrome than to accept the alternative and be another submissive short man.

When I said "jealous haters", it was directed to anonymous who said that KC was a "man whore with little man syndrome," Believe me, I do not resent, I am a very positive man. I just wish that Jack would not jump to conclusions before making snide comments about someone he does not even know. By the way, 5'8 is a good height & if you have problems with that, then I'm sorry if you make height the center of your world....
Real said on 24/Apr/09
Jack, I think you took my post the wrong way, and I'm definitely not sure why you called me out so harshly.

I never said anything about hate, I'm actually one of the most positive people you will ever meet. I definitely have confidence, maturity, determination, and intelligence and I'm getting ready to graduate law school. All I really said was that I'd rather have someone say I have "little man syndrome," as opposed to being submissive and not following my dreams. At 5'8, I'm sure height doesn't affect you much, that's a good height. I'm 5'6, and it usually doesn't even affect me. It's far from being "the center of my world"

And as for the comment about "jealous haters" that was directed to the person who said KC was a man whore with little man syndrome. But don't you think there is a hint of jealousy when someone says that a short man who has succeeded has a "syndrome" because of it?

Anyway, good luck becoming an actor buddy. and please make sure you know where someone is coming from before make snide comments amount them.. there is absolutely no need for it.
Jack said on 8/Apr/09
Hey Real.

I'm training to become an actor and a lot of my fellow class mates are like 5'10 and up to 6'3.

I'm only 5'8 and there are girls in my program that are taller than me too. But having some sort of "hate" is not gonna help you at all. I had to mature and learn how to be confident in myself in other aspects of life. Height is one thing... and if you make height the center of your world then I'm sorry to hear that.

You need confidence, maturity, determination and intelligence more than you need height.
Real said on 4/Apr/09
I may have what has been coined "little man" syndrome.. but I think that's better than rolling over and being another submissive little guy.. it's no secret that taller guys can have more success in many walks of life w/out trying as hard... so I'm not going to feel guilty for trying harder to compete. saying a guy has a "syndrome" seems to be convenient cop-out.. go ahead and be jealous haters while we succeed in life.
anonymous said on 11/Jan/09
I am 5ft 2in and gettin shorter 66 years old and would just love to attend a concert in or around Montreal. He is one of my favorites. He seems to have values in life and I was very angry at his wedding to that ding bat who had nothing in common with him or country music. Kenny go out and find a nice girl who will not give you grief.
heather said on 14/Nov/08

Kenny chesney is not sweet or caring although he plays out thesw characteristics on television etc. He is a man whore with "little man" syndrome.
MD said on 3/Aug/08
Here is Kenny with Brad Paisley and Keith Urban, both given 5'-8.5", here, which I think is a bit much for both of them:

He is usually listed at 5-7, so you know that he is shorter.
Gloria said on 26/Jun/08
Kenny could be 7' or 2' I really don't care. He is a sweet, angelic, caring, kind dreaming person and my hero. I knoow this sounds crazy but, I pray to marry him. We have to be soul mates. We are 90% alike- I'm not a guy, not been married, not 40 ( I'm 12) Did'nt Grow up in TN, I am not attracted to girls & some others stuff I cannot mention. Any way he is HOT! E-mail me at crombieXchesney@aol.com or IM me

Real said on 6/Mar/08
I would put him at 5'5. He has a muscular, lean build which makes him appear taller.
Colleen said on 4/Mar/08
I've partied with him a few times @ Woody's in St. John, USVI where he has 3 homes. He is VERY short but an awesome guy! His bodyguard got a peice of glass out of my flip flopped foot.

If Kenny Chesney is 5ft 6, then why does he look like 1 or possibly 2 inches shorter than Willie Nelson who is listed as 5'6" on this site. Click Here
If Willie is really 5 ft 6, then what does that make chesney, who is also listed as 5 ft 6 here. Is it possible that chesney is a tad smaller than 5'6". Maybe like 5'5" or 5'5.5"

I have a picture of my mom and Kenny. My mom is 5'2" barefoot. In the picture they both had boots on, and he had on a cowboy hat. Kenny was just barely taller than her.. so I'd say he's more like 5'5" with boots MAX.. more like 5'3"-5'4" barefoot. He's very short

Here's an article where he says he's five six "on a good day."

Hi, - I'm 5'3 - i have met Kenny three times - I work dressing rooms at our local arena - When kenny comes in from the bus , hotel ect...I was eye to eye with him - once he was dressed for the show - He was about 3 inches taller ( cowboy boots ) - in flip flops / tennis shoes - he is very very very short ...I was shocked -
Rod from Cincy said on 15/May/07
Just finished watching the CMA Awards show. Chesney briefly stood next to Shania Twain and was shorter than she was...and he was in cowboy boots. Given the fact that Shania was in heels, I'd put Chesney at 5'5" tall (MAXIMUM).
Anonymous said on 17/Apr/07
On a 60 minute interview they said he stands barely 5'6. Judging by that statement I'd put him around 5'5 to 5'5.5 and nothing more. This height needs to be adjusted
Viper said on 4/Apr/07
Yeah, hes 5-6 max.
MD said on 4/Apr/07
If he was 5'7" barefoot, he'd easily look 5'9" in his cowboy boots. This guy looks maybe 5'7" in his cowboy boots.

Brad Paisley, given 5'8.5", here, which still seems too tall, next to Kenny:

Kenny is 5'6" barefoot, MAX.

he is 5-7 i believe.he walked past me once too.

Wow. You guys have all MET Kenny Chesney? I'm from a small hick town way out in the boonies in New Brunswick, and Kenny is my idol. I love his voice and how he writes his music, it really speaks to me. I always thought he was somewhat short from seeing him on TV, but I never really knew, so I came on a Search Engine to find out, just out of curiousity. I am a 13-year-old girl and 5 feet 10 inches, and I am taller than most male country singers. What's with them anyway? Every single male country singer that you see on CMT is quite short for a man. Weird. Add me if you want to talk. beccaeldridge@hotmail.com
Brad said on 7/Mar/07
5' 6" and lean. Wears expensive boots with lifts.
anonymous said on 19/Feb/07
i have a couple friends that met him in person, my one friend is 5'7 and he said that kenny was short and my other friend is 5'3 and she said he was around her size maybe 5'4. I'm 5'7 also and had the chance to meet him and wanted to see for myself but believe they are accurate. I'll put him at 5'4 to 5'5. His cowboy boots don't forget give him some height
ML said on 10/Dec/06
Does anyone know if Kenny Chesney is in New York City this weekend (Dec. 9-10, 2006)? I think I met him today although he would not confirm his identity. If so, he is only 5'7" at the most with boots on.
Anonymous said on 5/Dec/06
I met him and I am 5'4..he can be no more than 5'6. He looks like a small child in person because he is also thin.
MD said on 8/Nov/06
Padraig, can you check this page out? Kenny really is nothing more than 5'6" barefoot. He's stated 5'6" is most interviews, so that is the very top of the scale for him.
Leslie said on 14/Sep/06
YAY i really do think he's around 56 because my friend said that her mom was talled than him and she proabaly like around 58 59
Samantha said on 15/May/06
I've Met him. I'm 5'6 and he was the same height as I was. He was wearing flat sandals. So I agree that he's 5'6.
JG said on 11/Apr/06
I think kenny is shorter then what you have listed.. Last night on the CMT Awards, Wynona gave him his award and she was a good 2 inches taller then him, and she says shes 5'5 i would say kenny is 5'4-5'5
MD said on 18/Mar/06
You're about right on this one. He's around 5'6" at the very most barefoot, and can look 5'8" with his heeled cowboy boots which he often wears. Actually, judging by these pics with 5'8" Nelly (5'9" here in shoes), I would suspect he's more like 5'5" barefoot:

And here he is with Ja Rule (who's likely 5'7.5" in this pic with his rather large soled shoes), and he has on cowboy boots again. I really suspect both are more like 5'5.5" barefoot.

I think I've heard that he's stated 5'6" in most interviews, so I definitely wouldn't give him any more than that. What do you think, Rob?

Kenny Chesney is 5 foot 8 !!! I know...trust me!i met him and he was wearing flip flops...and so was i ...and I'm 5 foot 7 and he's at least an inch taller than me.
CelebHeights Editor said on 29/Sep/05
From some blog, "I was fortunate enough to meet Kenny before one of his concerts last year in Ft. Wayne, IN and he was very nice, soft-spoken and polite. Yes, he's short. I'm 5 foot 9 and I was like a friggin' skyscraper next to him"
b_k004 said on 5/Jul/05
I had asked some people who had meet him in person about how tall they would say he was, and most said at least 5'8. I said "No way" he is much shorter than that more like 5'4. LoL Then they got on the this kick about who really cares how tall he is. I said, I do because I am really really tall for a girl and if I ever meet him I didnt want him coming up to my waist. Which now that I hear his height he would come to about my breasts that is still bad. So to all those girls who swore he was 5'8, its like I told you. Yeah with his boots on maybe but not when he takes them off. He still is a real Hotty no matter what height he is. Yet I still prefer men closer to my height. LOL

Rob, I intially questioned this height for Chesney but again, you were absolutely correct. http://www.courttv.com/archive/trials/countrymusic/052201_ctv.html

From the article:
""How tall are you?" Chesney was asked by prosecutor Louis Haremski, who cross-examined both performers and in turn became their unwitting straight man.

"Five foot eight," Chesney said with a sheepish grin. When McGraw and the rest of the defense table hooted incredulously, the singer — who stands five foot seven inches — asked with mock concern, "Is that perjury?"
