– Kenny Chesney's "Greatest Hits II" release ain't what it used to be. Thanks to his love of college football, ESPN aired the college football theme This Is Our Moment
during the fall and with the upcoming stadium concert experience "Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D" calling for a song to tie the five-stadium, six-night footage together yielding Ain't Back Yet,
Chesney added the songs to the CD.
"Those two songs are so much a moment," said Chesney. "You want them when the moment is still fresh...and I won't have a record out 'til next fall. So with all the options that are available in today's workd, I kinda felt like there has to be a way to get this music to people, to be creative with it. I went back to my record company and asked them to help me figure this out."
Available digitally on March 3, the songs are also being stripped onto physical copies of "Greatest Hits II" and should be in the marketplace around the same date.
"It's the possibilities that have always thrilled me," Chesney said. "Not what's been done, but what could be... It's what made me leave Luttrell all those years ago...say 'Why not stadiums...' and then last summer, 'Why not 3-D?' If you keep asking and dreaming, you can do amazing things. And, you know, that's what these two songs are about, too: the work, the will, the desire - and what's possible."
