– The ever busy Kenny Chesney will have yet another release out in May. "Greatest Hits: Vol 2" is slated to arrive on May 19 with a dozen of his biggest hits and Out Last Night,
a brand new song written with Brett James over Christmas vacation
"It's hard to believe it's been eight years since we released Young," said Chesney. "There has been so many memories, so much magic, so much great music...It all just keeps happening and you're loving every moment of it and not keeping score. When I realized all the songs that weren't gonna make it that were hits, that's when it hit me how much music me and the guys have made since the first greatest hits."
Songs include a Dave Matthews duet I'm Alive, collaborations with Uncle Kracker When The Sun Goes Down and his most recent number one with Mac McAnally Down The Road. Other songs are Living In Fast Forward, Young, Summertime, Beer In Mexico, There Goes My Life, Anything But Mine, I Go Back, Never Wanted Nothing More, No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems and the Academy of Country Music Single of the Year The Good Stuff.
"We've been all kinds of places musically," Chesney sasid. "And it was a little hard knowing how to pull it all together. In the end, I think we wanted to reflect what we've sorta become known for. I think if this music has been about anything, it's been about having fun, loving where you are in your life and recognizing how special the moments you share with your friends are."
"When we're out on the road, it's all about having a good time.... It's all about forgetting the stuff that's getting you down and remembering it's the little things that really make your life worthwhile. Maybe it's not some big, blown-up deal or larger than life experience, but I gotta tell you I've been just about everywhere and done things I would've never dreamed of, and there's still nothing more precious to me than hanging out with my friends, laughing about nothing and watching the sun move across the sky or singing every song we know in some little dive bar somewhere!"
Currently in the middle of his Keg in the Closet Tour of college town bars in the South, Chesney is rehearsing for his Sun City Carnival Tour with Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum on all dates and special guests Sugarland and Montgomery Gentry on the stadiums.
