I should know that any thread where the merits of Kenny Chesney come up is a slippery slope.
I guess I'm done posting on this thread. Safe trip everybody.
Sorry Pam - I didn't mean for this to get out of control.... It is really not that big of a deal, you have said many times in the past that you don't like country and some of the Trop Rockers..no big deal. That is the thing about discussion boards, we discuss things on both sides of the coin but I didn't mean to offend. Peace.

Thanks, I wasn't trying to bring down anyone else's enjoyment either I was just responding to Matt's comment and I should have just said "Ditto" and left it at that! My bad! :roll:[/quote]

I don't think it was you that inspired me to write so much as a couple of the other "pile-ons."

Regarding "copycats," for those who seem to feel this is an issue:

I don't see why people need to rag on folks like Kenny Chesney. Mr. Chesney was selling at least as many copies as Jimmy *without* doing the beach music, as a straight-up "new country" artist. Last I looked, Jimmy sells a half-million to a million copies per album; Kenny sells several million. I don't think Kenny's doing it just for the bucks, and his two albums that were primarily beach music apparently didn't sell as well as his more solidly country stuff. To put out something like "Lucky Old Sun" in a market that demands your next album be "just like your last, only different," is not an easy thing to do, and apparently he got some pushback from his label and management when he did that album.

And once again, Jimmy didn't "invent" trop rock music. Basically, he combined country with his life experiences in Key West. He wasn't the first person to do it; he's just been one of the most successful. And he freely admits *all* of his musical influences. He knows he didn't invent this stuff. Read his bios and listen to his interviews.

The music world is big enough for Buffett, and Chesney, and Mac (who is really a country artist), and hopefully a few of us lesser lights. It's big enough for each of us to like what we like without having to diss what and whom we don't like.

I think we could all use a few days of mellowing out over drinks in Key West.

Fortunately, that's in the near future. :)

Whether y'all like what I play or not, I hope to hang out with as many of you as possible down in the place where the highway ends. It's been way too long, and I miss that part of my family.

Happy anniversary!

My official year comes up in February, but I went and checked my old lurking screen name and realized it'll be my five year stalk-iversary in three days!
I knew this girl made of memories and phrases, who lived her whole life in both chapters and stages.
Danced 'til the dawn, wished all her worries away.

She's a long way from a West Nashville grand ballroom gown.

Not wanting to beat a dead horse...My point was Cheesney copies Buffett's marketing/life style ideas almost verbatim. Pirates, Key West, etc. He is even sponsored by Corona now! He comes across as the ultimate wanna be when you package it all together. I can't think of a single artist out there who blatantly copies another artist like he does of Jimmy.
I for one like lots of trop rock artists, Cheesney just rubs me wrong with his non-original marketing, etc. I'll put good money that within 5 years he has a themed restaurant too. :roll:

For me I like them both, own both of their CD's, would go to both of their concerts and restaurants, if Kenny had one. I also own several shirts of the same color and several pairs of flip flops...and I wear and like them all.

I figure if JB doesn't get p*ssed at Kenny, no reason I should. I like Kenny's music and he puts on a great show.

Besides, there's bigger sh*t to worry about than who's copying whom. As long as they keep making music I like I don't give a rat's azz about the rest of the drama.

As to who likes what, to each his own. We intersect at Buffett, good enough for me. Some of you love metal, not sure I could sit through a metal concert. If I dragged some of you to Neil Diamond or Josh Groban, you'd hurl. To each his own, let's celebrate the commonality instead of grating on each other about the differences. :wink:

Hey, if you ever need someone to go to a Neil Diamond concert with you I'll go - I've always liked him, and it would take me back to my first love! :D Having said that I'd go see Aerosmith in a heartbeat with anyone too.

Aerosmith is one of those bands I love and I've never seen. When Steven Tyler is done with American Idol and whatever that crap was he released as a single this summer, I'm all about seeing them on tour.
