Kenny Chesney’s latest single, “I’m Alive,” is a duet with his good friend Dave Matthews and reflects on the overall ups and downs of life. When it came time to make a video for the song, Chesney wanted it to capture the overall theme of the song. He explains “You know, the song is about recognizing that no matter what happens, you’re still here, and that’s a good thing. It’s easy – as the lyric says – to say that life is hard… but the other side of that is being willing to admit that life isn’t one continuous party. You have to take moments to reflect, to look at where you’ve been, where you’re going, to find new dreams. I wanted this video to reflect that.”
To celebrate his live show, this video includes clips from several of Kenny’s stadium stops on his “Sun City Carnival” tour, as well as a couple of stops during his annual “Keg In The Closet” tour. The video extends beyond normal live footage and brings fans behind the scenes to see some of the happenings that they never get to see. The video goes even beyond the stage to capture Chesney reflecting his life at the beach. “Shaun (Silva) and his guys have really been shooting this tour, but beyond the obvious stuff, they’ve been trying to capture who I am when I’m not on that stage or meeting people,” Chesney explains. “And there are a lot of times out there where I am thinking about all that’s happened, how we got here – and what this music means, not just to me because to me it’s my life, but to the unbelievable fans who come out… how they get through stuff in their lives through these songs.”
The video is in the final stages of development and will be released soon!
