Chesney Gets Inspiration from Buffett

In an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Kenny Chesney talks about getting inspiration from a Martin guitar that Jimmy Buffett gave him: “Songwriter Chesney’s perfect spot: ‘On my boat’

When the Poets & Pirates Tour, which hits Turner Field on Sunday, wraps in September, Chesney will grab his Jimmy Buffett Signature Edition Martin guitar — a gift from Buffett himself — and seek songwriting inspiration aboard his boat in the near-translucent waters of the Virgin Islands.

While plans are already in the works for next year’s tour, Chesney has his sights set on that upcoming songwriting sabbatical, crafting material with that guitar given by equally notorious island aficionado Buffett.

Jimmy’s a great songwriter, so I’ll try to get whatever energy I can from it,” Chesney says with a laugh.
