Country superstar Kenny Chesney is sure he won't spend Christmas in the cold and frost this year. He tells us of his idea of Christmas celebration on his new festive single 'Christmas in Blue Chair Bay.' This new single follows his recently released country album "The Big Revival."
The song is a laid-back, simple, acoustic treat with a Calypso feel - not surprising, since the singer has a love affair with the islands. With warm, inviting lyrics like, "Everybody raise a glass with me right now / To all of those up in the snow from all of us down South / 'Tis the season for believing and faith and family / I wish you were here with me."
Speaking of his new song, Chesney says, "It seems like there are few times of the year when you can really unplug, really just be in the moment with your family and your friends - and celebrate how great life is," he says. "Over the last 10 years, I've really come to appreciate that time off and what those connections mean, and I wanted to share that feeling with my friends through music."
'Christmas in Blue Chair Bay' was produced with Buddy Cannon, Chesney's long time producer. Cannon is also the producer of records by Reba McEntire, Willie Nelson, Marla Cannon-Goodman and many others.
"I was in the mood, especially with the time I've been spending in Barbados with my rum, to try and distill how slow and sweet the holidays in the islands are when we can get there," Chesney adds.
