Kenny Chesney pairs beautiful scenery with words of wisdom in his new video for “Save It for a Rainy Day.” Shot on the electric-blue waters and golden sands of Chesney’s Caribbean home-away-from-the-road, the video builds off of lyrics about how life is too awesome to focus on the clouds.
“The idea is, why lose another beautiful day over something out of our control?” Chesney says of the song. “Whatever it is — a girlfriend leaving, a crummy boss — the reality is pretty simple: they don’t care that they’re ruining your day. And they’re not, you are! It’s your choice how you’re going to feel. . . a lot more than any of us realize.”
Filled with sweeping scenes of pontoon planes and idyllic island bays, the video finds the country superstar living the good life — boating, off-shore fishing, soaking up the sun and strumming his well-worn guitar, always keeping a cooler nearby. That might look more like a vacation than real life for most fans, but that’s also Chesney’s point. The song’s lyrics point out that sometimes – even when things are going wrong – life presents a moment that just begs to be lived to the fullest.
“‘Cause the sun’s too bright, the sky’s too blue/The beer’s too cold to be thinkin’ ’bout you/Gonna take this heartbreak, and tuck it away/Save it for a rainy day.”
Written by Andrew Dorff, Matt Ramsey and Brad Tursi, “Save It for a Rainy Day” is the fourth single off Chesney’s The Big Revival album. His previous three, “American Kids,” “Til It’s Gone” and “Wild Child” (with Grace Potter) all went to Number One on Billboard’s country airplay chart.
Chesney’s currently out on the Big Revival tour with Jake Owen, Old Dominion, Chase Rice, Brantley Gilbert and Cole Swindell trading off opening slots. He’s also teaming up with fellow stadium-filler Jason Aldean for ten tag-team shows, and just broke his own attendance record in Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field, drawing over 55,000 fans to the home of the Eagles and dueting with Eric Church in the process.
