New Music Reviews

Kenny Chesney "The Road and the Radio"

by Jason Rzucidlo
americajr@americajr.com

Kenny Chesney's new album is called "The Road and the Radio." Last year's Entertainer of the Year is out with a new record just in time for the holidays.

The album includes 11 new songs. If you buy it at Target, you will get another disc with four new songs on it. If you buy it at Best Buy, it comes with a 34-minute interview on a separate disc.

"The Road and the Radio" is more Kenny Chesney than his last album. His previous album was called "Songs from the Old Blue Chair" and it was more laid back. This album gets back to the roots of Kenny Chesney. It is more upbeat than the last album was.

The first song released to the radio from this CD was "Who You'd Be Today." In some aspects, I think it's a song that he made after splitting up with Renee Zellwegger. Here's some of the lyics: "Sunny days seem to hurt the most. Wear the pain like a heavy coat. I feel you everywhere I go. See your smile, I see your face. I hear you laughing in the rain. Still can't believe your gone." The song is actually about someone that dies too young. It fits the profile for losing someone after a divorce or break up too.

During the CMA Awards show held in New York City this year, Kenny Chesney debuted song number two from the album. It's called "Living in Fast Forward." It's a song that describes his life. Somedays I feel like life is in fast forward. You get so busy and days are flying off the calendar. You ask yourself where did all that time go?

Another song I would like to highlight is one called "Freedom." Here's some of the lyrics: "Some say that freedoms the power do one pleases. You can live like the devil or hold on to jesus. I found the one thing i was born to do. Girl thats why im running back to you. Freedom, sweet freedom."

During an interview, Kenny Chesney recently pointed out that his favorite song on the new album is one called "Like Me." Here's some of the lyrics to that song, "Driving down the road of guilt, the highway that never ends, taking naps in my old car, singin in guitar bars, killin time at cafe queens, and truckers playing slot machines, I meet a lot of wannabes dreaming big and living free like me."

Some of the other songs on this album include "You Save Me," "Summertime," "In a Small Town," "Beer in Mexico," "Tequila Loves Me," "Somebody Take Me Home," "Brandy, You're a Fine Girl," "In This Boat Alone," "Flip Flop Summer" and "Old Bird Dog."

Look for it in music stores nationwide. Remember, if you buy it at Target you will get four additional songs free. At Best Buy, you will get to listen to a 34-minute interview with Kenny Chesney on an additional CD attached.
