Kenny Chesney previews his second hits collection with a morning after anthem that is refreshingly devoid of confusion or regret. They didn’t have too much or too little fun, just enough to justify the lost sleep and diminished checking accounts.
The cast of characters that Chesney meets on his night out might not really exist anywhere in the real world in the same place and same time, but he’s made a career out of idealizing such experiences in his music. “Out Last Night” is more of a complement to the older hits on his upcoming collection than a preview of new things to come, though the production is a lot more Strait than Buffett this time around, and that’s not a bad thing.
