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.

The tune has that lilting rhythmic island swing to it that gently lulls you into a...
