Chesney debuts song, ad Sunday

Thursday, April 2, 2009 – Kenny Chesney will debut his new single, Out Last Night, along with an ad for his tour sponsor Corona at the April 5 at the Academy of Country Music Awards show.

"It's weird how there are sponsors and there are partners," Chesney said. "And for me, Corona is the way I live my life... It's a part of hanging out, kicking back, chilling with my friends - so anything we ever do together just feels like another day, not some kind of work."

This year's ad - again shot by director Phil Jouron, who teamed with U2 for their "Rattle & Hum" - was shot in Tulum, Mexico and features Chesney's

Beer In Mexico. For Corona, Chesney marks the first time the beer company has had a person in their spots.

"We had a great time on this shoot," Chesney said. "We did it at night...and Tulum is just beautiful. And it really does, like I said, feel like a page out of my life: it's me by myself playing my guitar. Just chilling, having what I think is a quiet night - and then, for the people who're watching the ACM Awards, you'll see what happens."

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 ...
