Who wouldn't want Taylor Swift on their tour? Well, apparently the country king himself, Kenny Chesney.

During a recent interview, Kenny revealed that he actually had to pay Taylor big bucks to NOT be a part of his tour. It's not what you think, though. There's no beef between the two of them or was all because Taylor was too stinkin' young!

Apparently she was slated to open up on his tour a few years ago, but there was a problem with her age. The tour was getting sponsored by an alcohol company...and she wasn't 21 yet.

"I had to call her and tell her she couldn't be on the tour," Kenny recalled. Of course, he was upset over the situation. H apologized, but there wasn't anything he could do to change it. What's cool is that he wrote her a check to make up for potential revenue lost.

In typical T-Swift style, she showed him, winning Country Music Association's Entertainer of the Year award that same year, ending Kenny's four-year stint as the winner.

"I went up to her backstage, gave her a hug and told her I wanted my money back," he added.

Today, Tay and Kenny are actually good friends. They're both equally, big stars, that we and pretty much everyone else is equally obsessed with. And let's be crazy-amazing would that Taylor and Kenny tour have been? She's over 21 now...someone make that happen, puh-lease!
