Sean Paddock

140 – Kenny Chesney’s Sean Paddock – A humble approach to backing up a country star

In this podcast I talk to Sean Paddock who is best known as the drummer for Kenny Chesney, a position he’s held since 1996. Although he’s rocking the stage in front of tens of thousands of people every night, Sean remains humble and grateful for the position he’s in. Sean has been playing drums since he was 4 and comes from a family of musicians where he learned to serve the song, play musically and check your ego at the door.

“The reason most people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go instead of how far they have gotten.”

  • How he get started playing drums
  • Growing up with a family a musicians
  • Playing musically / playing for the song
