Blue Chair Bay Rum is coming to a city near you! The ‘Nowhere to Be But Here’ sampling tour will hit 25 cities across the country this spring and summer, “offering consumers of legal drinking age prime opportunities to experience the rums that multi-platinum singer-songwriter Kenny Chesney created to celebrate the anywhere, anytime spirit of the islands.”

Blue Chair Bay Rum will be at participating bar, nightlife and retail establishments, with branded Jeeps parked curbside. Consumers can learn tour stops by visiting the Blue Chair Bay Rum Locator, where locations and times will be highlighted in green.

Blue Chair Bay’s three premium rum flavors – White, Coconut and Coconut Spice – are all 100% beach made, mellowed in casks at one of the oldest, most storied distilleries in the Caribbean, located literally one hundred yards from the beach. Blue Chair Bay White Rum recently earned one of the industry’s highest honors: a four-star, Highly Recommended rating from leading spirits arbiter F. Paul Pacult.

“This tour is part ‘thank you’ to our great fans who made Blue Chair Bay Rum the fastest growing new company launch in the history of wine and spirits, and part ‘welcome’ to those ready to discover what made it so,” said Mark Montgomery, CEO of Fishbowl Sprits, parent company of Blue Chair Bay Rum. “With spring heating up and summer on the horizon, it’s about time to give people that toes-in-the-sand feeling our rums have a way of bringing on,” said Montgomery.

Chesney In The Studio Working on New Album

There hasn’t been much news from Kenny Chesney since the announcement was made last August that he’d take 2014 off from touring. But earlier today Kenny posted the following picture with the caption:

In studio working on new album. Can’t wait for everyone to hear the new music.

No additional details were given.

Here’s what Kenny said last summer about taking time off to make new music:

“I love touring more than anyone in the world,” Chesney tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I love the band, the crew, the whole team — and it’s weird to not be looking at next year’s stage design, but I shouldn’t make albums to service the tour. So I’m going to put the music first, dial it back and do the strangest thing in the world: not hit the road next summer.”

“We have so much fun out there … with the fans, the other bands … It’s summer camp with guitars and a great sound system. And when we hit that stage every night, and hear the crowd, that’s the best drug in the world. How you take a year off from that is hard; but music is the reason I do all of it, so right now, when I’m coming off an album that took me places I didn’t know I was gonna go, I think that’s what I should be exploring.”

“You get to a point when you’ve made a lot of albums and you need to challenge yourself, to really make the record the focus, to ask yourself what you want to say … and not just cut songs because they fit what people expect,” he says. “It’s a lot harder to find those songs than you’d think, and writing takes time — to think, to live, to be.”
