This week we travel back to 2005 and Colonial Life Arena in Columbia SC. Kenny Chesney killed it that night and I had the opportunity to say hey to him before the show. I’m not sure why I buzzed my head and I’m holding a guitar for some reason. Kenny probably thought it was weird, but he just smiled and took the picture.

11. “When I Close My Eyes” (1996) – Already having been recorded by a couple of under-the-radar country artists, Chesney recorded it on his 1996 album, ‘Me and You.’

4. “How Forever Feels” (1998) – Chesney said at the time that he almost didn’t get to release the song because Tim McGraw had recorded a version. McGraw decided not to release it, and after Chesney’s version hit number-one, McGraw told him “I’m glad you cut it. It just didn’t work for me.”
