We saw Dave Matthews and Kenny Chesney together last year when Dave Matthews made a rather surprise appearance at a Kenny Chesney concert in Atlanta on September 7, 2007. Now Kenny Chesney's upcoming album “Lucky Old Sun” features a collaboration with Dave Matthews on the tune "I'm Alive," This song appears as the first track on the album.
Kenny Chesney was also added to the line up at Farm Aid along joining Farm Aid board members and perennial performers Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews for the annual benefit concert, which took place Sept. 20 in Mansfield, MA.
The first edition of “Lucky Old Sun” will be a deluxe package, including live versions of various Chesney songs. The deluxe edition, available Oct. 14, will give fans access to downloads from Chesney's Poets & Pirates Tour and a special video of "Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven," featuring The Wailers. They will also have the opportunity to enter the "Kick It Off With Kenny" contest to win a trip to the opening of Chesney's 2009 tour. The music-only version of “Lucky Old Sun” will be released in stores on October 21.
"Lucky Old Sun is a really personal record," said Chesney. "It comes from some pretty deep places, and it looks at my life, how I've evolved and the way the ocean can take you places beyond location."
