Letterman welcomes Kenny Chesney

Thursday, April 23, 2009 – Kenny Chesney will play Late Night with David Letterman on May 19, the same day his 15-track "Greatest Hits Two" drops. Chesney will sing Out Last Night. "It's a fun song." Chesney said, "and everybody's been there. You're not goin' out, you're not stayin' out late... one thing leads to another, and next thing you're crawlin' in, goin' 'How'd that happen?' But you have a lot of fun in the process. I think the Letterman Show has a lot of that same spirit, so I can't think of a better place to sing it."

"I've heard it coming out of a few car radios and it makes me feel like summer," said Chesney. "You know, some songs just make you smile when you hear it...And this one, maybe because I remember all the fun me and Brett (James) and my buddies got in that night. Nothing too major, just the stuff guys do when they're out...But if it can make other people smile the way it does me when I hear it on the radio, then I think we've got something."

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 ...
