Kenny Chesney’s new single, “When I See This Bar,” is the most added at country radio this week. The song about a specific place and time in his life resonates not only with Kenny but with fans who can relate to the track.
“I think it’s happened to everybody,” he said. “You walk into a place where you really came of age, and you look around and realize that nobody there knows anything but all that happened there with you and your friends. But for you, it’s all still so real: right in that moment, right in that place. All the memories rush back – all the fun, all the crazy stuff you did, all the lessons and heartbreaks.
“Having played it for people since the record came out, I started to realize: what’s so incredibly personal for me is just as personal to every one I’ve played it for,” he continued. “Only they all have a very specific bar where it happened to them! Hung out with friends, fell in love, fell apart – and that’s why I figured this did make sense as a single.”
