Kenny Chesney's new album, Welcome to the Fishbowl, is now on sale, and fans will get a real peek into Kenny's emotional life on this project. He describes the new music as "very personal."
"There is a thread of searching on this record in a lot of these songs," Kenny says. "And I didn't realize it at the time. I was just recording and writing what I felt and recording what I loved and things that touched me and mattered to me."
Though Kenny didn't write the latest single from the album, "Come Over," he believes most of his fans can relate to the song about a couple that can't move on from a broken relationship just yet.
"It's just about comfortable sex," Kenny says. "You can't be with that person, but you're not really ready to emotionally and physically move on to something else either. So, what do you do? You go to what's comfortable in the moment."
The songs on the album Kenny did write, like "To Get to You (55th and 3rd)," are even more personal for him. He says, "You feel it before you write it."
Though Kenny has trouble even listening to a few of the most intense songs on the album, he explains, "I'm glad that I did them. I'm glad they're on the record."
Welcome to the Fishbowl marks the first time Kenny has released a new album while out on the road. His Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw lands in Nashville this Saturday.
