Kenny Chesney released an extended music video today for “Rich and Miserable”:

“We climb the ladder, but the ladder just grows,” Kenny Chesney sings in “Rich and Miserable.”

The country music star debuted his extended music video today for the track off his latest album Cosmic Hallelujah, which was released October 28, 2016.

The video features a college professor, played by John McGinle, asking his student to think about who they are and what makes them happy. Essentially, to look beyond the “rich and miserable” belief fed to them throughout their lives and seek out what they really want from life.

Chesney Reflects on Loss of Jonathan Demme

If you’re aware of who Jonathan Demme is, it’s probably as the director for movies like ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ and ‘Philadelphia,’ but he also directed the Kenny Chesney production “American Express Unstaged” in 2012. Demme passed away on Wednesday:

“Jonathan Demme understood how to capture music on film in a way that kept the heart and the energy intact,” Chesney tells Rolling Stone about working with the legendary filmmaker. Demme died on Wednesday (April 26) from cancer and heart disease. He was 73.

“I learned so much watching him work when he shot our show in Wildwood, N.J., about songs I already knew — and his love for how music looks when it’s being played live has stayed with me,” Chesney adds.

The country star’s Unstaged show was live-streamed on YouTube from Wildwood Beach, N.J., and reached people globally, but even more impressive, 20,000 fans showed up to see the concert in person. Chesney, a 2017 Country Jam headliner, performed almost 30 songs from his expansive catalog, including classics like “You and Tequila,” “Somewhere With You” and his early hit “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.” The release of the film was in partnership with the launch of Chesney’s 2012 album, Welcome to the Fishbowl, which topped Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and includes the two Top 10 singles “Come Over” and “El Cerrito Place.”

Kenny Chesney isn’t doing many shows this year, and he’s taking the chance to play tourist:

The superstar from East Tennessee most recently engaged his wanderlust on an excursion to Europe.

“There’s a lot of places that I’m curious about,” Kenny says. “I love being a tourist. I went to Italy this past year and I loved it because I love to eat,” he laughs.

“I love red wine so it was a lot of fun. I grew up loving cheese, tomatoes,” the notorious fitness buff goes on. “All that’s in Italy. I love it and… I love being a tourist when I can be.”
