Just downloaded Kenny Chesney's new CD, "Hemingway's Whiskey." Have done a quick first pass and have to say this one is good.
"Boys of Fall" will probably get the most air time, but for my money, "Where I Grew Up," written by Ashley Gorley, Kelley Lovelace and Neil Thrasher and the title cut, written by Guy Clark, are the best.
My 30-year old son called me from Knoxville just now and said "Where I Grew Up" was playing on the radio as he was driving. He admitted having to pull over when he heard it. It moved him that much. I'm happy the boy got my music gene.
My eyes leaked, too, when I heard it the first time.
"Small Ya'll" is a cute duet with George Jones.It was written by Bobby Braddock.
"Somewhere with You," by J.T. Harding and Shane McAnally is a great breakup song. The upbeat tempo belies a broken heart, but the lyrics sure pour out the misery of good love gone bad.
"Hemingway's Whiskey" sounds good here. Glad Chesney picked it. There's nothing much in the world that beats a Guy Clark song.
