Kenny Chesney in 3D opens

Thursday, April 22, 2010 – Kenny Chesney's "Summer in 3D," a movie about his concert tour in 2009, opened Wednesday.

"I don't think til we slowed down and really started looking at what was shot did I really begin to get it," said Chesney. "You know, you're working so hard to try to be better, to try to be the person those fans deserve - and you are more aware of trying to give than you are considering how the fans are responding to it. When we started editing, that's when it hit me: when we saw those faces, the looks on them, the emotions.

"And I've said throughout the process: so many nights onstage, I'd close my eyes and wish they could see what I see, feel the things I was feeling... Now, through this amazing and time consuming process, they really, really can. People who've been have come up to me and said, 'Man, so that's what it's like. How do you do that?"

Following a red carpet premiere in Las Vegas, the film opened across America last night - and Chesney was on hand in Chicago - as a surprise -- to introduce the film to a sold-out room. "You guys are a big part of this movie," he told the assembled movie goers. "You're the reason we're all here... and what you're about to see isn't just a concert, or six concerts, it's a journey of a lot of nights, a lot of miles... and a lot of faces."

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 ...
