Kenny Chesney's new single is called "When I See This Bar." It's the second song from his Life On A Rock CD, and one of the many on the CD that Kenny wrote from his own personal experiences.
He said, "I don't care where I've been, everybody has that place. Everybody tells me about that bar they hung out in, whether it was college or getting out of school, getting out of a marriage or whatever it was. You went there, and you forgot and laughed and learned a lot about people, who you are . . . And when you go back, nobody else can see what you did; but you and your friends? You will always know."
"When I See This Bar" has become a joint collaboration between Kenny and Eric Church when they perform the stadium shows.
Kenny said, "Eric totally gets what this is. He's one of those players who've been out on the road, playing the dives, going back where he comes from to remember who he is and why he does this. It's a thing people never think of, because you're just there . . . But it is the core of who you are. You and those friends, you figure a whole lot out about life in the process, and that -- no matter where you are -- can't be taken from you."
Fans can hear Kenny and Eric duet on "When I See This Bar" on Saturday (June 8th) when the No Shoes Nation tour heads to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
