Live Those Songs Again (BNA, 2006)

Kenny Chesney

Reviewed by Michael Sudhalter

As he rose from middle of the pack hat act to headliner, Kenny Chesney has gained quite a reputation for his energetic live performances. The Tennessee native gives a glimpse into his live show with a 14-song disc of previously recorded material recorded at live shows in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Knoxville, Nashville and the Bahamas.

On a live record, you look for it to sound different than the studio recording - and Chesney accomplished that with mixed results. There's a 30-second guitar intro to the rocker "Young," but songs like "Never Gonna Feel Like That Again" and "Don't Happen Twice" sound almost identical to their studio version.

Before "What I Need To Do", Chesney introduces his band - something that many artists cut out of their live albums.

The crowd sings many of the songs back to Chesney, which always captures the essence of a live show. Other highlights include "When the Sun Goes Down, the duet with Uncle Kracker where you can feel the excitement of Kracker joining in on the duet, and an extended version of "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy, which features a lengthy drum intro.
