Kenny Chesney is coming off one of the biggest songs of his career. He’s always had his home base in country, but you could always tell that he wanted to connect with people in all walks of music including the pop and rock world. So his collaboration with Pink wasn’t a huge surprise and it wasn’t a surprise that the song became a huge hit.
Now Kenny is looking to follow that success with more success and this old pro has picked another good one. I think fans will see some classic Kenny in this one and it’s also got a fresh sound for today’s radio.
Bar At The End Of The World – Kenny Chesney
Kenny makes no bones about loving the island life. He seems to kind of disappear from time to time to head out to the middle of nowhere. Then he comes back with some great music and enough energy to continue playing all those huge stadiums throughout the US.
This song seems to be about a couple that’s looking to get away for a good long while. They make their mark at some random bar in the islands. They have a good time. They meet new people. Then they head out and move on. Was it a real bar? Will they ever find their way back again? Maybe it was just a dream.
The song has a great melody. Kenny always has a way of finding these songs that are surefire hits. He’s been doing it for so long and he still seems driven to keep things going, which is great news for country fans.
I like this one.
