Kenny Chesney is wrapping up editing on his latest video, as the song hits airwaves for the first time today. “Everybody Wants To Go To Heaven” landed at number 22 on the Singles Chart after 12 hours of radio play. Chesney headed down to Jamaica to film the video, and was able to coax Bob Marley’s band into appearing in the video:

“They were so generous with us in terms of their time and the stories they’d tell us,” Kenny notes. “We sat up one night on the beach, and they shared the whole history of the band, the struggles they had. I got to interview them for something we may do later. Those guys are a huge part of history, whether people realize it or not. The music they had a hand in creating is so universal. It doesn’t matter where you go, you can hear the Wailers drifting out of some club or shop or car or boat, and they are so humble for everything they’ve been a part of.”
