Kenny Chesney inches closer to his signature sound on his second No. 1 hit.
The Road to No. 1
After earning his first chart-topper with “When I Close My Eyes,” the third and final single from his third album, Me and You, Chesney launched his fourth set with a multi-week No. 1 hit.
The No. 1
“She’s Got it All” is a spirited record that features an enthusiastic performance from Kenny Chesney, who is slowly but surely inching toward the signature sound that would make him a multi-platinum superstar in the decade to come.
The lyric is playful, it’s produced with a light touch, and it moves along quickly without overstaying its welcome.
You can really hear his growth as vocalist in the chorus, as he emphasizes “sweet memory” a little bit differently each time. He’s also moving away from his higher range, which will help with making his records sound more mature as time progresses.
The Road From No. 1
Two excellent ballads followed “She’s Got it All.” “A Chance” just missed the Billboard top ten, and then “That’s Why I’m Here” made it to No. 2 in Billboard and all the way to No. 1 on the Radio & Records listing. We’ll cover it when we get to 1998.
“She’s Got it All” gets a B+.
