Kenny Chesney preps "Greatest Hits: Vol 2"

Thursday, March 12, 2009 – 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.

CD reviews for Kenny Chesney

CD review - Here and Now deluxe After a storied run including eight Entertainer of the Year awards and two Greatest Hits albums (so far), Kenny Chesney was due for a setback. This one wasn't strictly personal, as the "Chillaxification" Tour got waylaid by a pandemic shutdown that scrapped most everything. The loss really belonged to the fans, as the original "Here and Now" record Chesney was supporting was a beauty – from the stirring "Knowing You" to the snarky "Wasted", ...
CD review - Here and Now For many years now, Kenny Chesney has been the number one yacht country artist; one never spotted far from an ocean or without an adult beverage in his hand. 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 ...
