Kenny Chesney isn't the best singer. He isn't the best guitarist. But he is, without a doubt, one of the best storytellers of this generation. He is able to get listeners emotionally invested in the people in his songs, and that is why he has consistently sold out stadiums for decades. "Here and Now" is another collection of stories in the Chesney discography, spanning contentment, love, and isolation. Stylistically, he uses more lead electric guitar than in the past, which is a nice surprise. In the end, Chesney is living "here and now", in the moment, and imploring No Shoes Nation to do the same.
