Though Kenny Chesney had been building a rabid fan base over the years, no one expected his 2002 release, the multi-platinum No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problems, to make him a superstar. But the Luttrell, Tenn., native had found a batch of songs that perfectly captured that scary no-man's land between adolescence and adulthood, precisely where the bulk of his followers happened to live. On its sequel, When the Sun Goes Down, the protagonists are older, with kids on the way and hectic jobs that rob them of leisure time. In fantasizing about those college keg parties and hedonism after dark, they search for a sigh of relief. Chesney understands this, and his own changes, too. Emotionally he's more at home in his own skin, and since his voice has gotten deeper and wider, he sounds increasingly confident in the studio, besting guest artist Uncle Kracker on the title song, a warmed-over Jimmy Buffett vibe. He's also matured as a writer. The majority of his four songs, two co-written with others, are no match for "There Goes My Life," the powerful unwed father ballad that served as the album's first single, or even "When I Think About Leavin'," another tune about standing at the crossroads. But his memorable "Being Drunk's a Lot Like Loving You" will burrow deep in your psyche, and prove Chesney a fine guide to confronting pain. Better keep this one handy. --Alanna Nash

"I have loved Kenny Chesney ever since I was first introduced to his song "Young". I picked up 'When The Sun Goes Down' when it came out in February and it hasn't left my CD Player since then. There is an amazing array of songs on this album. They never become old or tiresome...they get better each time I listen to them. I saw Kenny in concert this past July and ever since then, these songs have meant that much more to me. He is an AMAZING live performer and I think we will be seeing even more of Mr. Chesney in years to come."
Kenny Chesney scores again!

"I am in love with Kenny Chesney. I not only think he is very attractive but I just love his music. This cd is the type that will honestly make you want to be at the beach. Many of the songs are heartfelt, yet others are just plain fun. I have never been a big fan of Uncle Kracker but in " When the Sun Goes Down," he sings wonderfully with Kenny. That song is a perfect duet between the two different singers. The song "There Goes My Life," is enough for any sappy girl to get teary eyed. It puts some reality behind teen pregnancy, even though I know there are situations that turn out much worse than his did. The song "I go back," is just fun to listen to and sing along with. I am still fairly young, 19, and I still think back to my highschool days when I hear that song. Now, for my mother, she thinks back to her highschool days and it means a lot more than me thinking back only a short year. Kenny Chesney has a wonderful voice and his music is just fun and inspiring. If you like country and you enjoy Kenny Chesney's other music this cd will not fail you."
