Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney‘s upcoming album, Life On A Rock (April 30), is a 10-song collection that was recorded and mixed in Los Angeles, Hawaii, Jamaica, Key West, London and Nashville. The release is set to feature a range of influences, including shuffles, reggae and a duet with Willie Nelson.

“It all depends on what kind of rock you’re looking at,” Chesney says of the album’s title.“Just living here on this planet, we’re all living life on a rock, but for me, and for this record, it’s about the way life is when you live on an island. Everywhere you go, there’s everyone you know. You know everything about them, and they know everything about you… and well, that’s just a whole other way to be.”
