This is the VEVO music video on youtube for Kenny Chesney's new song, Pirate Flag. The sound is great, the imagery is great, and it makes you feel good. This song, especially when you watch the video, gives you the same feeling as "I Go Back" but with a Caribbean feel, not unlike every classic Jimmy Buffet song, but also without sounding like just a remake. It's great and new but also invokes so many nostalgic feelings about the beach, clear blue water and hot summer days.
This guy on the left is Easton Corbin, and he's starting to become my favorite new country artist. He sounds like George Strait. Seriously. This guy is to George Strait what Michael Buble is to Frank Sinatra. If you don't believe that last analogy, or don't understand it, listen to this. The song above isn't as new as 'Pirates above, but it's called "Lovin' You is Fun", and he's also well known for "A Little More Country Than That" and "Roll With It." I love them all.
On the left is the one and only Eric Clapton, and the link is to a video of him playing "Further on up the Road" with The Band. If you don't know who the Band is, you were either born after 1980 and you have bad taste in music, or you were born before 1980 and you also had bad taste in music. But in all seriousness I didn't know them by name until only a few years ago, but I recognized them immediately. You most likely have heard "The Weight" or "Ophelia", and they are just as varied and popular as Creedence Clearwater Revival.
This video is from The Last Waltz, a very famous ending tour for The Band which featured a lot of music celebrities. Here we see Eric Clapton 'battling' it out with The Band's guitarist Robbie Robertson. You see them go back and forth and it's incredible how much talent they both have. You can also tell they are both trying very hard to keep up with the other and you from their looks back and forth that they have an immense amount of respect for each other. Plus they are having a blast creating some of the most timeless, legendary music of all time.
