Sometimes the fame isn't worth the money. He lives in a fishbowl and is watched by everyone. He can't do anything without people having an opinion.

That wasn't his take home pay either. He has lots of expenses to pay with his tour. He wouldn't say in the interview how much he actually gets. It sounds more than he actually gets to put in the bank.

Very true, but money don't hurt when you've grown up poor. Small town boy makes it big.
One day it will all come to an end.

Most artists take home about 1/3 of what they gross.
That being said no, money does not buy happiness.
It has gotten Kenny a couple of boats and some homes.
He has a roof over his head or more then one, he has his health and his bills are paid. That is far more then alot have right now.
If Kenny was not raised with money he may very well be frugal with what he has.
He buys these homes as tax write offs since he has no dependents
