Kenny and Friend Hit No. 1

Kenny Chesney and his friend, songwriter Mac McAnally, sit at the top of the charts with “Down the Road,” the second single from Kenny's CD, Lucky Old Sun.

“I am really happy about having a No. 1 with my very good friend, and frankly, one of my songwriting heroes,” Kenny says of the achievement. “The idea that you can go in the studio with a couple guitars and a great lyric . . .  that says a lot about what people really want and respond to. And I'm equally happy for Mac, who's given the world so much wonderful music. He wrote this song on a Christmas morning years ago, waiting for his kids to get up and it comes from such a wonderful place." The song received an Academy of Country Music Award nomination for Vocal Event of the Year last week.
