Kenny Chesney Hears Familiar Tune while Cruising

With fans all over the world, Chesney is bound to bump into some of them from time to time. In a recent interview with Taste of Country Nights, Chesney says one such altercation took place rather recently.

The singer says he was out cruising when he pulled beside a vehicle blaring his hit song “Happy Does.” He says it’s one of a couple of times he’s heard his own music coming from another vehicle.

“It’s only happened twice in my life,” he says in the interview with the country music site. “I was at a stoplight, and the person next to me had their window down, blaring ‘Happy Does.’ They had no idea I was next to them.”

The “Boys of Fall” singer said the random run-in took place near his home in lovely southern California. While riding with his windows down, Kenny Chesney heard the familiar tune coming from the car in the next lane.

“I had my windows down anyway,” he says. “But they had no idea it was me. That was just a couple of days ago, so that’s one of the cooler places I’ve heard it. Just at a light on the Pacific Coast Highway.”

The Song “Happy Does” was put out by Kenny Chesney last summer in July 2020. It is the third song from his latest alum “Here and Now.” The song reached all the way to the number two spot on the Country Airplay chart.
