  • The first time that Chesney heard this Nicolle Galyon, Tommy Lee James and Josh Osborne penned song he couldn't think of anything but performing it onstage to his dedicated fans.

    "When I heard it, when we made this record, just the whole chorus of that song I thought about my connection with the audience and I thought about the energy we have onstage," the singer told Taste Of Country Nights. "I think about all the love and passion that those fans out there, we call 'em No Shoes Nation, I think about all the energy that they throw back at us. I thought about that a lot when I was making this record, especially 'All the Pretty Girls,' because I just know that that's going to make the show even better."
  • The song's music video was shot over two days in Virginia and directed by Will Renner and Jessica Martinez, both film students at Nashville's Belmont University, The clip is the winning entry in a contest that Chesney launched to find an up-and-coming creator to helm the visual.

    "We thought the first day [of filming] was only going to be five hours," said Martinez. "But when we got started, we found some more creative things to do. We ended up shooting for 10 hours, with an hour for lunch."

    "Our vision was to capture the essence of a summer fling - just the feeling of freedom and having fun, not taking things too seriously," she added. "Because Will is from Virginia, he was able to get people he knows from high school [to be part of it], which made it really fun to shoot."
