Summertime for Kenny Chesney

Thursday, June 22, 2006 – "Summertime" continues to be the right time for Kenny Chesney as his single once again tops the Billboard country song chart for the week ending July 1. And the Dixie Chicks' "Taking the Long Way Home" also remains number one, but on the album chart.

On the song chart, the first four songs remained the same as the previous week with Phil Vassar's "Last Day Of My Life," Brad Paisley's "The World" and Tim McGraw's "When the Stars Go Blue," two-three-four. Carrie Underwood's "Don't Forget to Remember Me" was up one spot to fifth.

A big mover was Rodney Atkins' "If You're Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows)" up four to eighth. The Wreckers' "Leave the Pieces" also was up 4 to 16th.

On the album chart, Rascal Flatts' "Me and My Gang" and Underwood's "Some Hearts" remained second and third. Alan Jackson was up two slots to fourth with "Precious Memories." The "Blue Collar Comedy Tour: One for the Road" was down one to fifth.

Trent Willmon debuted in 19th with "A Little More Livin'," his second disc. Blaine Larsen debuted in 23rd with "Rockin' You Tonight," also his second album. Larsen sold about 12,000 units of his disc.

On the overall top 200 chart, the Chicks were 2nd, Rascal Flatts 8th, Underwood 16th, Jackson 18th and the Blue Collar disc 19th.

However, this album's title track expresses a much deeper perspective on life. "I must've sat on a dozen islands/Watched the sun sink into the sea." Previously, island living was the reason for life. Now, life's purpose is described as much more internal than external. Call it trading that pirate flag for a little more mindfulness. ...
CD review - Songs for the Saints Kenny Chesney's "Song for the Saints" is a step in the right direction for the popular country star. Inspired by the Hurricane Irma disaster, which hit Chesney personally as it destroyed a house he owned in the U.S. Virgin Islands, these songs are more serious and heartfelt than typical Chesney music. Best of all is "Love for Love City," a reggae duet with Ziggy Marley incorporating steel drums into an inviting island mix. It's followed by a cover of Lord ...
