I'm Alive by Kenny Chesney

Album: Lucky Old SunReleased: 2008Charted:
32
  • This is a duet with the South African-American singer-songwriter Dave Matthews.
  • Chesney included this on his 2009 Greatest Hits II collection. It was one of two non-singles included on the album.
  • Chesney told AOL that this was the most personal track on Greatest Hits II, "just because of where I was in my life when I wrote it." He explained that he wrote this song after his break-up with the actress Renee Zellweger, saying: "I woke up one day and realized, even though I'm going through all this stuff and don't feel good about it, the outer shell of my life is really great. I'm alive; I get to make music; I've got a lot of great friends. That's the message of the song."
  • Chesney co-wrote the song with Dean Dillon and Mark Tamburino. It was originally recorded by Willie Nelson on his 2008 album, Moment of Forever, which Chesney co-produced.
  • This is the Dave Matthews Band front man's first solo appearance on the Hot 100.
