Kenny Chesney has always been the king of changing things up with his music while keeping things the same.
There is a trick the best artists seem to be able to pull off all the time. When you think of great artists like George Strait, Tim McGraw, Shania Twain and Kenny Chesney you think of their signature sound.
But if you listen to their music over the years you’ll notice changes. And once you notice those changes you realize how big those changes were.
Kenny has a signature sound. He’s turned his twang into a sleek country voice. He’s also known now for his love of the islands.
But he does things different each time. The last song was a rocker. This one is laid back. Check it out.
When I See This Bar – Kenny Chesney
Kenny is the lost son of Jimmy Buffett. They both love the islands. That’s no secret.
What I like about this new song is that it reminds me of Margaritaville. There is a kind of laid back feeling. The narrator in the song is just kicking back and taking a moment to take in all his surroundings. That’s kind of what Jimmy used to sing about. Sometimes it was a party, but sometimes it was just about sitting back, taking a breath and reflecting.
This song is about reflecting on something in life. For Kenny it’s a bar he’s loved.
For you and me it might be a high school or an old apartment.
Whatever it is we all have something that makes us reflect.
This is a good song. Great melody. It should be another hit for Kenny.
