"Lucky Old Sun"
Kenny Chesney returns this week on WSVNRadio, with his 2008 release, Lucky Old Sun. Named after the 1940s
hit (the Frankie Laine version is the one I'm familiar with), this album was definitely chosen as our Album Pick of the
Week in the right month of the year - July, 2011 - The album is great to listen to on a warm or hot summer day. This album
achieved a #1 hit, "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven" on the Billboard Country Songs, as well as #1 on the
Billboard 200 albums chart.
Imagine yourself relaxing on your hammock or on a comfortable chair in the warm summer rays. Of the 11 tracks on
this album, the opening track (with Dave Matthews) "I'm Alive" along with "Way Down Here," "Boats," "Down The
Road," "Spirit Of A Storm," and "Nowhere To Go, Nowhere To Be" are great tunes to enjoy the summer sun by.
The typical upbeat style of Kenny's music is here as well, on tunes such as "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven,"
"Ten With A Two," likewise the songs are equally nice on "The Life" and "Key's In The Conch Shell."
(What is a conch shell you ask? They're similar to seashells.) The album closes with the title track, with help from
Willie Nelson. (Definitely one of best tunes from this album.)
I can't help but compare the music of Kenny Chesney to that of Jimmy Buffett. Both artists are great in their own
rights. Both of their music makes you feel warm, especially enjoying the music on warm/hot summer days. Relaxation is
the key for Lucky Old Sun. Whether it's an album just to relax to, it is a very well done album by Kenny.
There aren't as many very "upbeat" numbers here, (like say in songs such as "Summertime" or "When The Sun Goes
Down" and the likes.) Yet, it does give off a warm, sunny feeling all around.
