Kenny Chesney, ‘All the Pretty Girls’ [Listen]
Kenny Chesney‘s “All the Pretty Girls” is a classic Chesney summer song. Thick guitar riffs and lyrics that live in the moment dominate a song that leans into his classic rock influences.
The intro recalls a great John Mellencamp song — something that’s hardly new for Chesney. While the singer is only playing a few select dates in 2017 (including Country Jam Colorado in June), his next single from Cosmic Hallelujah is built for the live show. The easy singalong captures the spirt of youthful summers — how is it that as he nears 50 he’s still able to do that so easily?
Nicolle Galyon, Tommy Lee James and Josh Osborne penned “All the Pretty Girls,” the fourth single from his 2016 album. Thus far they’ve each represented a return to a classic Chesney sound more than they have a progressive push to the future. He’s giving fans what they want.
Did You Know?: Kenny Chesney won the Billboard Music Award for Top Country Tour of 2016.

Kenny Chesney’s “All the Pretty Girls” Lyrics:
All the pretty girls said pick me up at eight / All the pretty girls said I’m going to LA / All the pretty girls said I hate my hair / Talking to the mirror in their underwear.
All the lost boys said I just got paid / All the lost boys said I wanna get laid / When the town goes blue and the lights blink red / All the lost boys do what all the pretty girls said.
I’m home for the summer / Shoot out the lights / Don’t blow my cover / Oh I’m free tonight / I’m coming over / Call all your friends / Somebody hold me / All the pretty girls said / All of the whiskey / Went to my head / Shut up and kiss me / All the pretty girls said.
All the sheriffs said kid you better slow down / All the preachers said it’s the devil’s playground / I wonder if they knew they were wasting their breath / All I ever heard was all the pretty girls said.
All the seventeens said I’m getting out of dodge / All the big dreams said I’m selling all I got / All the high rollers busy placing their bets / Me, I’m heading south ‘cause all the pretty girls said.
