Since 2002's NO SHOES, NO SHIRT, NO PROBLEMS, Kenny Chesney has slowly transformed himself from a standard Nashville country crooner into something more unexpected: a 21st-century Jimmy Buffett, as interested in Caribbean rhythms, Florida sunshine, and the steady rhythm of the ocean waves as he is in traditional country-music storytelling. LUCKY OLD SUN continues Chesney's paeans to life on the beach, with highlights including the first single "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven," "That Lucky Old Sun (Just Rolls Around Heaven All Day)," a duet with the equally laid-back Willie Nelson, the clever "The Key's in the Conch Shell," and the soaring opener, "I'm Alive," with a guest appearance by Dave Matthews. LUCKY OLD SUN is also available in a special limited Deluxe Edition, which includes a second disc that includes four live tracks and two music videos, one for the single "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven" and one that was used as the pre-show introduction on Chesney's 2008 "Poets and Pirates" tour.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.71) - "LUCKY feels encouragingly personal for Chesney -- particularly 'Way Down Here,' written in the wake of his 2005 divorce..." -- Grade: B
Artist Bio
Kenny Chesney"I could've done a 'greatest hits,'" allows the man who just notched his 15th #1 single and has more Top 10 country hits than any artist this century. "But I think to really be an artist, you have to stand in your now. So as a songwriter, I felt it was more important to offer this picture of me now rather than later."These songs are more relevant to me and my life today and over the last 3 years...where I've been in my life, what I've done, who I'm becoming. So I wanted this to be less of a blueprint of where I hang out and have a few beers, I wanted it to be more the map of my soul."Whether it's the pensive retreat and exhale of "Way Down Here," the suspension of time that defines "Nowhere to Go, Nowhere to Be" or the philosophical resilience of "I'm Alive" -- originally recorded by Willie Nelson for his Chesney co-produced Moment of Forever -- these are songs about digging a little deeper, letting go of what you know and trying to find the peace within. Indeed, in many ways, working with Nelson -- who duets on the Tin Pan Alley standard, "That Lucky Old Sun" -- was pivotal in this project's evolution."[Co-producing Moment of Forever] gave me a real artistic shift," Chesney confesses of the collaboration that saw the men embracing songs by Bob Dylan, Randy Newman, Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson and Nelson himself. "I came away from those sessions more inspired as a songwriter. I found I was eager to tell stories, to try to find more commonality with people through my songwriting."If there's one thing I learned from Willie -- beyond to truly breathe -- it was his gift to touch people where they live. If Be as You Are represented something that was personal, I think this one just seems more honest and truthful. It comes from a deeper place, from who I am when I'm still."
