Album of the Week: Kenny Chesney’s “Life on a Rock”

Screen Shot 2013-05-02 at 2.29.42 AMCountry superstar Kenny Chesney never intended to make his new album, “Life On A Rock.” It was just the moments in his life the songwriter/singer from Luttrell, Tennessee wanted to capture for himself.

“It’s easy to let those moments go,” says the man who’s sold over a million tickets to each of his past 10 tours and sold over 30 million albums. ”You get busy and let moments go. Other things come up, the moments pass…

“I probably let a 1000 of those go without capturing them. You just don’t realize how precious they are. What made me sit down and write ‘Lindy’ that day, I do not know. But when I did… Well, that’s when I saw how much of a moment a song can hold. Not necessarily for the radio, or the show, but my soul.”

61d5973234Written over time, written for no one but himself, “Life On A Rock” is a handful of postcards from the life Kenny Chesney has led when he’s not being the biggest ticket-seller of the 21st century with 24 #1 hits under his belt.

Most of the breezy songs on the album focus on island life and unplugging, with a heart that exemplifies Chesney’s ability to capture the real lives of fans- from the joy, sorrow, real moments and honest connections between friends, lovers and those who have moved on.
