Chesney album premiere goes to Country Top 40

Tuesday, September 7, 2010 – Bob Kingsley's Country Top 40 will host a 90-minute album premiere with Kenny Chesney and his new CD "Hemingway's Whiskey," hosted by Kingsley. The CD is out Sept. 28.

More than 130 stations have confirmed, including WUSN/Chicago, WXTU/Philadelphia, KPLX/Dallas-Ft. Worth, WUBL/Atlanta, KMPS/Seattle, WQYK/Tampa, WKIS/Miami, KNCI/Sacramento, KWJJ/Portland, WDSY/Pittsburgh, and WKKT/Charlotte.

"I'm not surprised at the intense level of interest in this special," said Kingsley. "Kenny has spent the decade hitting them out of the park when it comes to singles and albums, and bringing them to the park in terms of concerts. He has proven over and over that he knows how to connect with his fans, and it sure looks like he's done it again. The Boys Of Fall is one of his fastest-rising singles ever, and it leads off an album's worth of new music that is as heartfelt as anything he's ever done. This special finds Kenny opening up about life and music in a way that is both enjoyable and very, very powerful. I'm very happy to be a part of it."

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 ...
