Kenny Chesney tour ends this weekend

Friday, September 7, 2007 – Kenny Chesney will end his Flip Flop Summer Tour this weekend with a two-night stand in Atlanta tonight and tomorrow. The tour, which hit stadiums and outdoor summer sheds, was a prelude to his new CD, "Just Who I Am: Poets & Pirates," which drops Tuesday.

The tour started April 12 in Omaha, Neb. The tour included Pat Green and Sugarland on all the dates, plus Sara Evans and Brooks & Dunn on stadium shows.

Chesney will appear on ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's Late Night With Conan O'Brien next week to promote the CD.

Chesney is off to a great start with the disc because the first single, "Never Wanted Nothing More," was number one for four weeks. His current single is "Don't Blink," which is about the quick pace of life and debuted at 16.

"One thing that really made me dig into this song was the fact good as my life is and as good as everything is, it's still really hard for me to stop and take it all in," Chesney said. "That's what touched me about this song."

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 ...
