Goin' Coastal This Memorial Day Weekend?

Our Sea Song of the Week is perfect if you are heading to the coast for the holiday weekend...

Are you going Coastal this Memorial Day Weekend?
Every week we post a nautical tune to kick off the weekend, even if you can't get out on the boat. We call it the Sea Song of the Week.

With the long holiday weekend upon us and the start of boating season in many parts of the world, we knew had to pick an all-American nautical tune with some punch performed by one of the heavyweights of the "beach and boat music" genre. 

We think we found our guy...

Coastal
If you're a country music fan and you follow our site, you've probably been hoping we'd include Kenny Chesney more often in our selections for the Sea Song of the Week.  If you're not a country music fan, consider yourself informed that Kenny Chesney has that whole Jimmy-Buffett-lifestyle thing going on. He's even got a boat and spends a lot of time in the Caribbean. If you go to one of his concerts you can upgrade to something they call the "Sandbar". Chesney definitely seems to have moved on from songs about tractors in his early years to songs about beaches and boats.

A perfect example is our choice for this week's Sea Song of the Week. Here is Kenny Chesney performing Coastal off his album Hemingway's Whiskey which was released this past fall...



By the way, the name of Kenny Chesney's current tour - Goin' Coastal - which kicked off this week in Tuscaloosa is taken from this song. Check out Kenny Chesney's official site for tour dates and other goodies at www.kennychesney.com

And, you can find many of our previous picks for Sea Song of the Week at the Daily Boater Sea Song page.
