KENNY CHESNEY TEAMS WITH GRACE POTTER  ON “YOU AND TEQUILA”--FOURTH SINGLE FROM HEMINGWAY’S WHISKEY ALBUM

NASHVILLETN – With three diverse # 1 singles from his critically acclaimed Hemingway’s Whiskey, Kenny Chesney continues to showcase the album’s depth with the release of “You And Tequila,” which will ship to radio later this month. Written by Matraca Berg and Deana Carter, Chesney features singer-songwriter Grace Potter on the recording which the New York Times declares, “it’s one of the finest songs of Mr. Chesney’s career, a sudden bolt of darkness disrupting a blissful summer sky.”
Of the tune Chesney says, “I’ve always loved the song “You and Tequila.” I’ve had that song for years and lived with Matraca’s demo for a long time. After the tour in 2007, I rented a house in MalibuCaliforniaright on the cliff of the ocean and I would drive up the Pacific Coast Highway right at sunset. I remember I’d roll down the windows and I would just listen to music. I would listen to Tom Petty, The Eagles, I would listen to so many songs that would kind of fit that moment. It was therapeutic.”

“When we were putting together Hemingway’s Whiskey,” Chesney recalls, “somebody brought up ‘You And Tequila’ and when I listened to the demo again, it was just like I was driving up the Pacific Coast Highway at sunset with the window down and that’s why I recorded the song.”

“I was looking for somebody to record it with me and I thought of Grace Potter because I love her singing and love her records,” Chesney continues. “I didn’t know her, but I got in touch with her, played her the song and literally three days later she was in Nashville, and we cut it. Still, every time I hear the song, I go straight to driving up the PCH at sunset- got the windows down. I love that feeling.”

Chesney returned to Malibu last week to shoot the music video with Grace Potter. Shot in multiple locations, the video will be released next month. Chesney currently resides at #1  on the singles chart with his 22nd chart topping song, “Live A Little.”

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E.
