It’s all in a Song: Thanks Kenny

We spent last night watching a 50-year-old man do what he loved…sing for a crowd.

He was AMAZING!

Kenny Chesney and I have lived “post-graduation life”  together.

30 years of traveling around the sun together.

It was amazing that with every song, I could remember exactly where I was and what I was doing at the time; a house we lived in, a baby I was holding, a trip to the lake,  a day with a friend, and on and on.

So the rest of this post will be life advice from Mr. Chesney himself.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the show.

I’ve been living in fast forward
Now I need to rewind real slow

So I go back to a pew, preacher and a choir
Singin’ ’bout God, brimstone, and fire
And the smell of Sunday chicken after church

To a time where

We find out when you die the keys to heaven can’t be bought
We still don’t know what love is but we sure know what it’s not

So we should

Paint a wall, learn to dance
Call your mom, buy a boat
Drink a beer, sing a song
Make a friend, can’t we all get along

because

Reality, yeah, sometimes life
Ain’t all that it’s cracked up to be

But we have

One life, one chance
One ticket to the big dance
You and me still holding on
Right down to the last song

Cause the sun’s too bright, the sky’s too blue

and

When the sun goes down, we’ll be groovin’
When the sun goes down, we’ll be feelin’ alright

That’s somethin’, baby that’s somethin’
Oh that’s somethin’
That just don’t happen twice

I know 

We were brave, we were crazy, we were mostly young

And I also know

Everything’s gonna be alright
Everything’s gonna be alright
And nobody’s gotta worry ’bout nothing
Don’t go hittin’ that panic button
It ain’t worth spilling your drink
Everything’s gonna be alright
Alright, alright

True we are all

A little messed up, but we’re all alright

But

She said if you work hard to get where you are it feels good in the hot spotlight of life

 

So

Take a deep breathe and let it all in, shut up and kiss me because as long as I am somewhere with you, who cares.IMG_6944

 

Go be AMAZING this week!!
