As I noted in an earlier post, there are a lot of superstars coming out with new album releases this Winter and Spring. Tim McGraw's '2 Lanes Of Freedom' hits stores on Tuesday 2/5.  And there are CD releases in the works for Brad Paisley, The Band Perry and more.

According to Hawk listeners, the most anticipated new album in the Greater Binghamton area is from Kenny Chesney and will be called 'Life On A Rock.'  According to his record label, the release date has been set for April 30th.

The Chesney fans I talked today today are expecting more of the "island sounds" they love, maybe a duet or two but want to hear more tempo in his music.

If his current single 'Pirate Flag' is any indication, it's going to be a fun album.  'Pirate Flag' has that island groove with a really cool Southern Rock feel.  It's 100% pure Kenny Chesney.  It reminds me of the one year I could not hit the beach and all was Ok because I played my Kenny Chesney albums.
