Editorial Reviews

Kenny Chesney has played NFL football stadiums by the dozen, received 4 Country Music Association as well as 4 consecutive Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year Awards, had nineteen #1 singles, and has sold over 27 million albums and is the only artist in any genre to sell over a million tickets each of the past eight summers. When he made the decision to scale back from touring this year, it was in large part so that he could take the time he wanted to really enjoy the process of making a new studio record. Now, Chesney has released what will perhaps become his most enduring album, Hemingway s Whiskey.
With the lead single "The Boys of Fall," a song that encapsulates the potency of the high school football experience for anyone who s ever put on pads and played under the Friday night lights, Chesney started looking at the themes that have always marked his music and sought to make the songs richer, more nuanced and perhaps offer deeper insight to how they feel or shaped the singer (and the audience s) life.
Having recorded seven albums since his first Greatest Hits, now certified quadruple platinum, Chesney has sung a lot of songs, covered a lot of ground musically and defined a genre that celebrated growing up in small towns, loving the beach and knowing how to kick back. His records are not only the soundtrack of country radio in the 21st century, but are the sound of summer for people who plan their vacations around trips to go see Chesney somewhere each year.

Kenny Chesney is cheery, fun, and polished as brash on "Hemingway's Whiskey."

By now his decidedly laid-back, beach bum, everyman persona has so cemented itself into public consciousness that it's sometimes difficult to figure out whether he's intentionally singing songs that cater to that image or vice/versa.

Fortunately, that matters little when the song selections are generally solid and Chesney in fine voice, displaying great, fun-loving enthusiasm and charismatically pumping life into material that would sound mediocre in the hands of a lesser talent.
He sounds recharged after taking time off the road, even though he only contributes one tune - the fun but unremarkable "Reality," a slightly overproduced but otherwise fine swashbuckler.

A great addition to the record is a larger than usual helping of slower, more thoughtful tunes. "Where I Grew Up," for one, is a coming-of-age tale that asks the perennial question - where did all the time go? - with cool, matter-of-fact elegance. Chesney avoids sap and cliche with his rich, heartfelt reading of the lyrics. As he does with the majority of the tracks here, he gives it sincerity and punch.

The ponderous, absolutely gorgeous "You and Tequila," a duet with the greatly talented Grace Potter, has major hit potential with its theme of near-torturous passion. Their voices mix together in a match that is heaven-made and endlessly listenable. Their inspired delivery gives the song a burnished ache.

Louder, amped up songs balance out the slower material. "Coastal" has some corny lyrics, but Chesney manages to infect the song with his platinum-selling charm. The same goes for the take-no-prisoners "Live a Little," which moves unstoppably with heavy electric guitars upfront in the mix.

I bought the deluxe edition today at Target after school. It's really hard for me to choose which is my favorite song because they're all amazing. This is his more "mature" album in my opinion, some of them hit close to home.

"Coastal" is a really great and catchy, up-beat song.

"You and Tequila" is one of my favorites, the rhythym of the song is so soothing, and the duet with Grace Potter is amazing.

"Hemingway's Whiskey" is another smooth song, it kind of reminds me of "Something Sexy About The Rain."

"I Didn't Get Here Alone" brought tears to my eyes the first time I heard it. I've been a fan of Kenny's since I was 12 years old, and I will be turning 18 this Saturday. It really hit me, and it just made me that much more grateful for Kenny and his music.

I chose to buy Kenny's album over a WWE movie... now that's saying alot. Hope you all enjoy the album as much as I am. :)

I like the CD but I still find his island infused albums more interesting. I loved Lucky Old Sun. This reminds me more of Poets and Pirates, but with even less island. My favorite two songs are Hemingway's Whiskey and the Boys of Fall.

Prime Cuts: Hemingway's Whiskey, The Boys of Fall, Round and Round

Like a shaken snow ball, Chesney's "Hemingway's Whiskey" presents flurries of fresh and thought provoking ideas. But after they have settled, a beautiful landscape of unforgettable melodies and heart-tugging tunes surfaces. Not since 1994's "Tin Man" has Chesney waxes such eloquence in the department of the heart. This truly is a mature record that is also unmistakably Chesney's best in a long while. Perhaps this is due to the fact that this record was made when Chesney took a hiatus from touring. With more time invested into the making of this record, the prodigious dividends are definitely apparent. Also, Chesney has wisely not fallen into the dire temptation of many country artist today, this time Chesney has only co-written one cut ("Reality") with the rest coming from a red carpet of Nashville's best including Paul Overstreet, Matraca Berg, Deana Carter, David Lee Murphy, Neil Thrasher and even Guy Clark.

Most impressive are the songs that make a home run for the heart. Lead single "The Boys of Fall" may be a story about a football player but underneath the innocuous story are lessons about brotherhood, friendship and faith. "The Boys of Fall" has such vivid and descriptive lyrics that it ought to resound with anyone who has live through high school football before. Co-written by Lee Brice "Seven Days a Thousand Times" is one of those songs that will haunt you with bittersweet memories long after the song has ended. A laid back guitar driven ballad "Seven Days" tells of how a short term romance stayed in the heart of the protagonist for years and years to come. "Where I Grew Up," on the hand, is Chesney's nod back to his roots. Lyrically it may not chart any new tuff.

Kenny Chesney has been on a roll since the start of the decade. Churning out some of the most flashy and introspective Country Music on the airwaves. With his latest release, "Hemingway's Whiskey," he accomplishes this feat once again. Chesney is a singer who will never forget who he really is, which is such a benefit to his fans who have come to expect certain things in his music. Beginning the disc with the monster hit "The Boys of Fall," and ending it (non-deluxe edition) with the wonderfully written, and brilliantly covered title track, Chesney bookends a continuously exciting list of tunes. Each aspect of his later recording's staples is well represented here. The solid, guitar-powered, Country rockers, the vivid, picture painting, summer romance ballads, the country-boy anthems, and of course, the ever so present and popular beach theme. While Kenny does show to be a little more adventurous on a couple tunes, it's not so much as to scare off any long time fans or casual listeners. The single "Somewhere With You," paints a mood that not only have we not heard from Kenny himself, but is something that hasn't been touched by the likes of Country music at all. And with the track "Live a Little," we hear Kenny rocking harder than ever before on his studio works. Not to discount his multiple stage appearances with rock stars like Van Halen. In summary, what we have here is a very complete, well produced, and superbly performed album by one of Country Music's biggest stars. Kenny fans will not be disapointed by this one, and he does stand to gain some new listeners if any would be willing to give it a spin. 5 stars, without hesitation!
