Bar at the End of the World

Album: Cosmic Hallelujah (2016)
Charted: 92

Songfacts®:

  • Like many of Kenny Chesney's songs, this one is about retreating from the pressures of everyday life, in this case to the most remote of watering holes.

    "That song is about escaping everything in your life," he told Entertainment Weekly. "Whether it's the election or your job or whatever is weighing you down. I think there is a part of us that wakes up one day and says, 'I want to find a bar that is as far away as I possibly can, and just sit there.'"
