BNA/NASHVILLE star KENNY CHESNEY and singer/songwriter MAC McANALLY were recently honored by ASCAP with a #1 party for their hit, "Down The Road." At the celebration at ASCAP's MUSIC ROW offices, MAC presented KENNY with the guitar that MAC used when writing "Down The Road" and "Back Where I Come From," one of his other songs that was a CHESNEY hit.
CHESNEY said: “The idea that MAC would sing this song with me was gift enough. He came up, went into the studio and it just came together … and it's amazing to hear a song this acoustic -- really just us and a guitar -- on Country radio. There aren't too many hits like that these days, but then there aren't very many songs like the way MAC writes 'em either!”
"Down The Road" was originally written for MAC's "Simple Life" project and was MAC's first #1 as a performer. For more on this story, visit www.kennychesney.com.
