Kenny Chesney is sharing a little piece of his island life this holiday season with the release of his new Christmas tune, “Christmas In Blue Chair Bay.”
The acoustic song is about celebrating the holidays with the people you love in a place that is very dear to you. Kenny says the video, which was shot in the Caribbean, sums up the song’s message perfectly.
“We all have those special places we like to go to get away with our friends or our family. It doesn’t have to be the beach or the water… It could be a mountaintop or the desert,” he says. “But somewhere you and yours go to get away from it all, and this video shows how that looks for me.”
Sara Evans has released the video for her new song, “Put My Heart Down.”
Shot at the historical Riverside Mansion in Nashville, it shows Sara surrounded by light bulbs which are set on the floor and hanging from the ceiling. Sara says the video’s director, Peter Zavadil, came up with a great way illustrate contradiction in the video by capturing the light bulbs and then showing them eventually explode.
“You have such beautiful and pretty scenes with the soft lighting and beautiful mansion, contradicted by the exploding bulbs,” she says. “I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.”
“Put My Heart Down” is the second single from her album ’Slow Me Down’. She says she was drawn to it because it’s a sad song with a happy melody. She says, “I like the contradiction and I think it makes for a really interesting overall song.”
She’ll join Brent and Candy for football picks Friday morning (November 28).
Jake Owen has changed gears for his new video for “What We Ain’t Got.”
It debuted yesterday on Entertainment Tonight Online and is far from the beach party anthems he’s become known for.
Jake says he was immediately taken by power of the song, which was written by Travis Jerome Goff and recovering addict Travis Meadows, which is important to the theme for the video.
Filmed in Nashville it shows snapshots of real people who have struggled and experienced loss, including Travis. There’s one line of the song that particularly hits home with Jake.
“There’s a line that goes ‘I wanted the world ’till my whole world stopped’ and I really feel what Travis meant by that, he says. Everything halted when my dad went through cancer last year. It was difficult to see the man that I looked up to the most and was the pillar of strength in our family going through this. As difficult a time as it was, he is now cancer free and I’m so thankful.”
