Kenny Chesney has released ‘When I See This Bar” as his latest single. While listening to his Life On A Rock album walking down a hallway before a recent stadium show, he realized the song was about a place every person knows.
“I don’t care where I’ve been, everybody has that place,” he said. “Everybody tells me about that bar they hung out in, whether it was college or getting out of school, getting out of a marriage – or whatever it was. You went there, and you forgot and laughed and learned a lot about people, who you are. And when you go back, nobody else can see what you did; but you and your friends? You will always know.”
When Eric Church, who is currently along as a special guest on Kenny’s No Shoes Nation Tour, listened to Life On A Rock, he sent Kenny a text message letting him know how much he liked “When I See This Bar.” Since then, the pair have performed the track together at few stadium shows.

“Eric totally gets what this is,” Kenny said. “He’s one of those players who’ve been out on the road, playing the dives, going back where he comes from to remember who he is and why he does this. It’s a thing people never think of, because you’re just there. But it is the core of who you are. You and those friends, you figure a whole lot out about life in the process, and that – no matter where you are – can’t be taken from you.”
