East Tennessee-born singer Kenny Chesney has, in the course of his relatively brief career, proven to be an unremarkable but thoroughly competent singer who shows occasional flashes of brilliance when teamed with the right song. That happens roughly half the time on this 17-cut compilation disc, which, despite its title, actually includes four new songs, one rerecording, and a remix. Amid soppy country-pop chart fodder ("Me and You," "When I Close My Eyes") and second-rate ditties ("How Forever Feels," "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy"), Chesney hits his stride on robust country ballads like "You Had Me from Hello" and the lead single "I Lost It." On other gems--like "That's Why I'm Here," a heartfelt tribute to the Alcoholics Anonymous 12-step program that topped the charts a while back; "Baptism," a great duet with Randy Travis; and his fine rerecording of "Tin Man," the song that launched his career in the mid '90s--Chesney even manages to attain an ephemeral but utterly moving transcendence over his vocal limitations and sometimes questionable song choices. --Bob Allen

In 1993, Kenny Chesney put out his first album My Wildest Dreams (on Capricorn Records) which sold poorly and generated no radio hits. Each subsequent Chesney release, however, has done better than its predecessor, culminating in 1999's platinum-selling Everywhere We Go. The momentum continued with this, his first hits collection.
For starters, the ten previous hits are truly great. The wedding anthem "Me and You" and the alcoholic saga "That's Why I'm Here" are incredibly moving, whereas the foot stompin' "How Forever Feels," "She's Got It All," and "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" generate loads of excitement. Those latter uptempo tunes are where Chesney really shines, with his twangy vocals at their most distinctive and full of personality.
None of the seven new recordings on Greatest Hits (two of which are remakes) are remotely as rowdy. The Randy Travis duet "Baptism" aims for inspiration, but gets mired in a lumbering melody, while the mid-tempo tales "Don't Happen Twice" and "For The First Time" are thematically and musically repetitive. A live version of "Back Where I Come From" offers a stronger vocal than the original, however, and "I Lost It" is one of his best ballads to date.
Ultimately, the success of "Don't Happen Twice" and "I Lost It" at country radio helped make this set a mega best-seller. Still, Chesney needed to pick up the pace with some high-octane new material next time around. He did just that with the strong followup album No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem and its toetapping leadoff hit "Young."

I'll admit that I didn't much notice Kenny Chesney at first. I was listening to an Oklahoma City country station and noticed the name many times, but it wasn't until I looked over this Greatest Hits package that I realized he was responsible for many of my favorites.
For instance, "That's Why I'm Here". This is one that has to be considered one of the most meaningful country songs ever. I was a bit scornful the first few times I heard "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy", and even made fun of it in conversations with friends. However, I'll admit that it grew on me in time.
I get the feeling that my experience of feeling that he kinda sneaked up on me is common. A number of country fans have suddenly realized that hey, he's here and he's good. I've heard the comment, "I didn't realize Kenny Chesney sang that" a lot more than once.
This is a good and satisfying set. It's not the most pretentious country CD around. It's a kinda quiet one that sits around and suddenly you notice it and decide you want it.

This CD is awesome! I am a huge KC fan and he just keeps getting better with every release. The new songs have wonderful lyrics and are the best kind of country, songs about love. The live version of "Back where I come from" is the best live recording I've found by any artist. Also, "Fall in Love" is the new version he's been singing at his shows. The new song, "When I close my eyes" is a beautiful love song that I can see being played at weddings very shortly. I recommend this CD for any country music fan and of course, for any Kenny Chesney fan. Even though it is a Greatest Hits CD, he spreads the new material throughout, balancing old favorites with future ones. Also, for everyone who thinks that not only his tractor is sexy, the picture behind the CD is gorgeous as he is soaking wet in the pool.

The title of this album seems pretty obvious: a collection of Kenny Chesney's greatest hits. Interestingly, most of his

biggest hits came after this album. So what gives? Well, Chesney was a fixture in the country world for the better part of the 90s, an artist who made a presence at radio but not so much outside of that world. That's not to say this album

doesn't represent great work, because it does: even before Kenny began his ascent, he still picked good material. This

disc contains seventeen songs, a few more than the standard hits package in country. And like most modern hits collections, it contains new material, here in the form of four songs which are all pretty darn good. The first two new songs, "I Lost It" and "Don't Happen Twice", open the album. They were also the album's big hits, with the latter hitting #1. Both songs exemplify Chesney's style of telling stories in song, whether about love-against-the-odds or young love (a common theme of his). This is followed by "The Tin Man", which is actually a re-recording of a song Chesney recorded on his first (and second) album. There's an underated quality about this song, which is essential Kenny. It alludes to "The Wizard of Oz", and how Chesney wishes he were the Tin Man, since "I wouldn't have a heart, and I wouldn't miss you". Great stuff. The older songs occur after this in mostly-chronological order. "Fall in Love" (a remix?), and "All I Need to Know", are memorable hits from his first BNA album "All I Need to Know". They are followed by "For the First Time", another new track that remembers young love. Next up is "Me and You", a sweet song that was Kenny's first #1.
