On the second day of our 25 Days of Country Christmas, Kenny Chesney decided to gift us with a beachy new holiday tune that will make you want to celebrate the holidays on a tropical island somewhere. Over ten years since the release of 2003’s All I Want for Christmas is a Real Good Tan, KC has returned with the new yuletide tune, “Christmas in Blue Chair Bay.”
The track is a breezy, acoustic ode to celebrating the holidays with those you love, especially when they happen to dwell near a warm sandy beach. The video, also directed by Chesney, shows clips of home movies intermingled with clips of Chesney strumming a guitar on the beach.
Of the song, Chesney speaks candidly, admitting that a holiday song happened by accident. “I didn’t set out to write a Christmas song. I was getting ready for a writing session, and we got talking about a lot of my trips to the islands. So many of them were around the holidays, people I know, adventures we’ve had and the way you can just savor a day when you don’t have anywhere you have to be.”
Additionally, Chesney is using the song as a gift to fans that they could give to their friends and family. By simply submitting their own customized Blue Chair Bay postcard, fans are entered to win a flyaway trip for two to the Bahamas. “We all have those special places we like to go to get away with our friends or our family,” Chesney explains. “It doesn’t have to be the beach or the water… It could be a mountaintop or the desert. But somewhere you and yours go to get away from it all, and this video shows how that looks for me… And in the spirit of the season, I thought we could do a contest to send someone to my idea of paradise.”
