The Story Behind Kenny Chesney’s “Better Boat”

Tagged: , , , , ,

Kenny Chesney’s “Better Boat,” the second single from his latest album, “Songs for the Saints,” has been one of my favorite tunes from the album since I first heard it on No Shoes Radio.

Kenny Chesney Beach Bar Playlist Added To YouTube

Tagged: , , , ,

Last summer I created a list of ten Kenny Chesney songs I would want on my beach bar playlist and even had the audacity to rank them from 10 to 1.
