It was in early 91 when this striking 18 year old not only won the lead role in the film “Buddy’s Song” (also starring Roger Daltrey of The Who), and signed to sing the soundtrack but suddenly found himself one of the first teenagers in Pop history ever to bag the Number One spot with a debut release.
“The One And Only” stayed at the top for a staggering five weeks going on to become one of the undisputed global teen anthems of 91 as it crashed Top 10’s world-wide, including the notoriously difficult markets of Japan & America and was featured over the titles of Michael J Fox movie “Doc Hollywood”. Chesney has even released his autobiography entitled “Who I Really Am”. Numerous Top Chart albums and world tours later, Hawkes became the legend he is today that we all know and love.
