When Kenny Chesney pulled the plug on what would have been his 2010 tour in August of last year, he had accomplished almost unprecedented things. He’s 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, duets with Dave Matthews (“I’m ...

Product Description


Though Kenny Chesney had been building a rabid fan base over the years, no one expected his 2002 release, the multi-platinum No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems, to make him a superstar. But the Luttrell, Tenn., native had found a batch of songs that perfectly captured that scary no-man's land between adolescence and adulthood, precisely where the bulk of his followers happened to live. On its sequel, When the Sun Goes Down, the protagonists are older, with kids on the way and hectic jobs that rob them of leisure time. In fantasizing about those college keg parties and hedonism after dark, they search for a sigh of relief. Chesney understands this, and his own changes, too. Emotionally he's more at home in his own skin, and since his voice has gotten deeper and wider, he sounds increasingly confident in the studio, besting guest artist Uncle Kracker on the title song, a warmed-over Jimmy Buffett vibe. He's also matured as a writer. The majority of his four songs, two co-written with others, are no match for "There Goes My Life," the powerful unwed father ballad that served as the album's first single, or even "When I Think About Leavin'," another tune about standing at the crossroads. But his memorable "Being Drunk's a Lot Like Loving You" will burrow deep in your psyche, and prove Chesney a fine guide to confronting pain. Better keep this one handy. --Alanna Nash

A must have for all Kenny Chesney fans!!!
Kenny Martone
So if you like country music and want a mixture of upbeat songs that you can party to and some that you can just relax to, this is the CD to listen to.
This is by far one of Kenny's best cd's ever.

I've never been a huge Kenny Chesney fan. His early music was immature and radio-friendly to the core. His latter-day music, however, has an edge to it--for example: few artists would have the nerve to record a song as brutally honest as "Anything but Mine;" still fewer would put it out as a single (and the controversy this song may or may not cause isn't even intended to sell the record, as evidenced by the fact that it's already won awards and been named Country Album of the Year, and established Chesney as a serious artist). I respect Chesney for that, and so I decided to buy the album.

This is great music right here. Unlike a lot of contemporaries, Chesney is a great writer--he doesn't write much, but the four songs he wrote or cowrote on here ("I Got Back", "Keg in the Closet," "Bein Drunk's a Lot Like Lovin You," and "Old Blue Chair") are four of the best. And his choice of covers is nearly impeccable..."There Goes My Life" still brings a tear to my eye, while "The Woman With You" strikes to the bone with any working man or woman.

There are few duds on here. "Outta Here" it a bit cliched, and the title track follows a oft-repeated Buffet vibe...but it's catchy as hell. Even "When I Think About Leaving," which begins like any other song you've ever heard, quickly turns poignant and sentimental. Chesney's voice has matured, his writing and song selecting capabilities have matured...WHEN THE SUN GOES DOWN just may be the album of his career (though, thankfully, not the last). It's great country music, plain and simple, from a guy who knows what he wants and what his fans want, and delivers on both levels.

Great album, but if you purchase it at Target, you get a bonus CD with 5 cover songs. (I'm on Fire, Come Monday, etc.)

When this Luttrell, Tennessee, lad broke on the country scene, it appeared he was just another in a large crop of look-alikes and sound alikes. Now, as he's grown up a bit, Kenny Chesney certainly is one of country's superstars, as witnessed by the recent CMA success.

With "When the Sun Goes Down" there's no debate. He's hot and heavy, making the sophisticated (and not so sophisticated) TV talk shows and showing a depth that is not common with a lot of modern musical superstars.

In "I Go Back" and "The Woman with You," Kenny shows a depth of perception and performance that highlights this CD. His driving, rock-hard productions blend cleverly, creatively, and certainly the best of good rock and high-end country, a juxtapositioning of entertainment that catches you where it should. He feels at home, no matter where, and his numbers indicate he knows where he's going and it's going to be all the way-his way. He's maturing as a song-writer ("I've read a lot of books and wrote a few songs," he says.) Besides what appears to be a lot of personal, autobiographical lines, he goes with leaps and bounds into some social significance ("Some People Change"), as well. Coupled with his singing ablility on the CDs, Kenny's hunky videos are also worth watching, as he rolls out a sensuousness that clearly makes him a cut above the rest.

What is good music? Music holds several meanings for various people. To me, good music comes from the words as well as the music. If the song really "hits home" then it becomes great music. Of course, one could not have great music without a great artist; an artist who really does a superlative job and puts emotion into his/her work. Kenny Chesney, one of country music's greatest artists, gives a whole new meaning to the words--great music. His newest CD, When the Sun Goes Down, is compiled with eleven exceptional tracks, making every song count. Three songs that really spoke to me are "There Goes My Life," "I Go Back," and "The Woman With You."

The first song that is heard on the CD is "There Goes My Life," a moving song told in the perspective of a young man. While they were still in high school his girlfriend became pregnant. At first they see this as the worst thing that could possibly have occurred, ruining their dreams and taking their life away. Ironically, it turns out to be the best thing that ever happened to them. My favorite lines out of the song are "A couple years of up all night and a few thousand diapers later. That mistake he thought he made covers up the refrigerator. Oh yeah...he loves that little girl." This song just goes to show that mistakes are sometimes blessings in disguise.

Along with "There Goes My Life," another extremely influential song on this CD is "I Go Back." The message conveyed is about how songs can really leave an impact in people's lives. If one can truly identify with a song, then the time, place, and how they felt when first hearing it always stays with them, which holds true for me.

I am in love with Kenny Chesney. I not only think he is very attractive but I just love his music. This cd is the type that will honestly make you want to be at the beach. Many of the songs are heartfelt, yet others are just plain fun. I have never been a big fan of Uncle Kracker but in " When the Sun Goes Down," he sings wonderfully with Kenny. That song is a perfect duet between the two different singers. The song "There Goes My Life," is enough for any sappy girl to get teary eyed. It puts some reality behind teen pregnancy, even though I know there are situations that turn out much worse than his did. The song "I go back," is just fun to listen to and sing along with. I am still fairly young, 19, and I still think back to my highschool days when I hear that song. Now, for my mother, she thinks back to her highschool days and it means a lot more than me thinking back only a short year. Kenny Chesney has a wonderful voice and his music is just fun and inspiring. If you like country and you enjoy Kenny Chesney's other music this cd will not fail you.
