Ain't Back Yet

Album: Greatest Hits II (2010)
Charted: 50
  • This is a single taken from the re-release of Country music artist Kenny Chesney's album, Greatest Hits II. "I wanted a piece of music that encapsulated the things in my life that brought me here… that showed the things that had brought me there," he said.
  • The uptempo track celebrates fast cars, first love and chasing dreams. "That song is pretty much everything about what happened to me, especially with the music," Chesney commented. "You get so focused on what you're trying to accomplish, it takes over… and there's nothing that's going to come between you and your dream. For some people, it's sports; for me, it was the music. You know, there's a price you pay to do this, but look at what this is."
  • The song was written by Craig Wiseman ("The Good Stuff") and Chris Tompkins ("Before He Cheats") .
  • The song plays over the closing credits of the film Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D.
  • "Ain't Back Yet" entered the Country songs chart at #23, the chart's highest debut since Chesney's own "Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven" opened at #22 in August 2008.
