Kenny Chesney Releases ‘American Kids’ Video
Chesney released the new clip Monday morning (June 30). The video shows the superstar out in the desert with a group of young people, rising around in a psychedelic bus ‘Partridge Family’ style, and just generally having fun and playing music.
That’s in keeping with the spirit of the song.
“I don’t care who you are or what you do,” Chesney notes, “everybody needs to let their hair down, just forget about expectations and be in the moment. I love this song because of the way it paints a picture of how we all grow up, the innocence and the fun; but if you really listen, it’s about how we should really live and love.”
Chesney worked with director Shaun Silva on the video for ‘American Kids.’
“If I could create a video where it wasn’t so literal, but more about the state of mind and the freedom my fans embrace, then to me, that’s the best way to capture the song on film,” he explains. “Anyone, everyone who’s ever been glad they’re alive… they’ll take one look at this and know.”
The superstar took 2014 off from touring to focus on his upcoming 15th studio album. The still-untitled project is expected later this year, and Chesney plans to tour behind it in 2015.
