Even though he's still sporting a sling from recent shoulder surgery, Kenny Chesney says he's determined to be in "fighting form" when he hits the road this spring for his 2008 Poets and Pirates Tour.

He says he's taking his rehab "very seriously" and has been spending 3 to 4 days a week at a sports training facility in Birmingham, Alabama.

Chesney's Web site says the prognosis on his muscles mending is good.

Chesney's shoulder injury dated back to his college football days.
