Chesney's "Come Over" goes to the top

Monday, July 30, 2012 – Kenny Chesney's Come Over will top the Country Singles Charts this Thursday when the charts are officially released 11 weeks after its release.

The song was Chesney's 24th career number 1 single and was certified Gold last week for digital sales in excess of 500,000.

Bentley takes over for Dierks Bentley's 5-1-5-0.

Come Over is the second single from "Welcome To The Fishbowl" album to go top 10 with Feel Like A Rock Star featuring Tim McGraw the previous single. The two stars share the stage on the 'Brothers of the Sun' Tour, with Chesney and McGraw.

The tour brought tour to a Saturday show at Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis. "This has been, over the years, an incredible place for us to play music," said Chesney. "Thank you guys for having us back in this wonderful building tonight."

On Sunday, nearly 50,000 came to celebrate at Brown Stadium in Cleveland. "Whenever Cleveland is on the summer schedule, it's this moment I look forward to right here, being able to sing this song in this town," said Chesney as he introduced Anything But Mine.

The crowd cheered a tribute to late local radio personality Chuck Collier before I Go Back, and they cheered guitarist and local boy Kenny Greenberg. "He plays like he's from Cleveland, don't he?" Chesney asked.

The tour goes south next week as the tour, goes to the Superdome in New Orleans and Houston for a Saturday show at Reliant Stadium.

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 ...
