Kenny on CMT Insider  
Katie Cook sat down to interview Kenny Chesney for a special edition of CMT Insider which will be premiering Saturday, October 11th at 1:30 pm ET/PT. They talked about his new album "Lucky Old Sun", his return to the Caribbean, his life post break-up with actress Renee Zellweger, among many other things. Part of the interview can be found on CMT's website and the rest while appear on the show.

Let's talk about the song "Nowhere to Go, Nowhere to Be." Tell us about Trinidad Charlie.
"...I sat there with him. After a couple of hours, I realized that for the first time -- in probably a year and a-half -- that I was completely still, and my heart was still, my soul was still, my head was still. I wasn't thinking about what I had to do. I didn't think about any expectations. I wasn't thinking about the good reason that I had to be somewhere else. It was just me and Charlie, and that was it..."

Like "Way Down Here." Talk to us about it.
"... So, after Christmas, I got on the plane and went back down and met my boat captain, Ben, and he picked me up on the boat. I looked at him, and the first thing I said to him was, "Well, if I'm going to be down, I'm going to be down here." ... That whole song was about my emotion that day. ... And when I got down there, I didn't really feel that much better, but I just kind of inhaled a little bit better and exhaled even better, and so that's where that song was born."
