– Kenny Chesney will debut the video for Out Last Night
May 1 on MySpace.
"It seems to be that Myspace.com is what FM radio was when it took hold," Chesney said. "Back when, it seemed like all the new music, all the stuff you'd want to discover was on FM radio stations where the total music junkies were hanging out - waiting to see what's next.
"I know a lot of my fans are using social networking as a way to stay connected, to communicate with each other...to check out music and swamp bands," he said, "and it's a pretty exciting thing to get out there where you can feel the fans. It's straight into their hands - and having the greatest fans in the world, this seemed like a way to give them the clip when they want it, where they want it."
Filmed on location in Miami, Out Last Night was inspired by a real late night shared with co-writer Brett James over Christmas vacation. Shaun Silva directed the video.
"From video to video, we really try to capture the song's feeling," said Chesney. "If you can capture a song's vibe in the video, then I think you've served the songwriters, the singer, but especially the fans. Because everyone has their personal movie of what a song should be - and you don't want to ruin that. But I'd say with Out Last Night, Shaun captured a night that everybody would want to be a part of."

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", ...
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. ...
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 ...
