Country singer Kenny Chesney refuses to reveal who he'll be voting for in the US Presidential elections next month (02NOV04) because he dislikes celebrities who try to sway voters' opinions.

The WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN star is determined to keep his political beliefs a mystery because he fears too many musicians have already aired their political views.

Chesney says, "I haven't made a conscious decision to be one way or the other. It's not that I'm not sensitive to what's going on, or that I don't have my own view.

"It's just that I think, by watching CNN, we're all informed to the point of bombardment about events in the world.

"Some people want to stand up and sing about them, too, and there are some good songs. But personally I don't see the need to add to the number."
