Country superstar Kenny Chesney won't release his new album Hemingway's Whiskey until September 28th, but Rolling Stone has your exclusive listen to one of the album's standout tracks "You and Tequila," a duet with Grace Potter. "I was looking for someone to do the song with me ‹ I listened to all kinds of music and there was this girl whose voice I just fell in love with," Chesney says of the pairing. "I didn't really know anything about her, I just knew I loved her singing and I loved her records, and her name was Grace Potter."

Grace Potter and the Nocturnals were named to Rolling Stone's Best New Bands of 2010. "I love singing beautiful songs, that's all I care about ‹ this is the first time that on the very first listen I immediately picked up the phone and said 'Make this happen,'" Potter says.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
