“Life on a Rock,” Kenny Chesney
(Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville)
Kenny Chesney opens his new album “Life On A Rock” with “Pirate Flag,” a rowdy beach-bum anthem reminiscent of his many fun-in-the-sun party songs of the last dozen years. Most of the rest of the songs are about unplugging from the chaos of the daily grind and reflecting on quieter pleasures. This is the East Tennessee singer’s most personal album since 2005’s “Be As You Are (Songs From A Blue Chair).” Chesney follows his muse and offers up an album that exposes his weathered soul.
