Kenny Chesney Releases ‘Flora-Bama’ Music Video
Kenny Chesney has released a video for 'Flora-Bama,' from his No. 1 'The Big Revival' record. The clip, which starts off in the famed Flora-Bama Lounge and Package, pairs shots of the bar with scenes from Chesney's free August concert, the Flora-Bama Jama.
"This place is so many things to so many people," Chesney says of the lounge. "It has been for a long time because they've shared life here. Friendships were born here. Relationships were born here. Every place you look, there's 50 years of memories. Lovers have written their names on the wall, they've declared their love for each other on the wall of this place.
"That kind of stuff lives forever in the thread, in the heart and the soul of a place like this," he continues. "I feel like the people that come to this bar really do represent my audience and everything that we've built No Shoe Nation to be."
Chesney's Flora-Bama Jama was his only big concert in 2014, while he took time off to work on 'The Big Revival.' But the one show, which drew more than 40,000 fans, was more than worth it, he says.
“To me, a place like the Flora-Bama is all about kicking back, being with your friends and not worrying about a thing," Chesney says. "Just hang out and be easy. I love that it’s on a border, that it’s on a beach, that it’s like the best bar anywhere people get together and just be! It’s everything the notion of ‘The Big Revival’ is built on: taking that time to regroup, replenish then re-engage with the passion of being truly, absolutely alive.”
Chesney will get back on the road in 2015, for his Big Revival Tour, which kicks off on his birthday (March 26).
