Kenny Chesney shares the story behind his "When I See This Bar" live collaboration with fellow country music star Eric Church! More here.

One of the most popular touring acts in country music, Kenny Chesney, reflects back on his No Shoes Nation tour featuring Eric Church. More on their collaboration here!

In an interview with Sounds Like Nashville, Chesney spoke fondly about the spirit Eric Church brought on stage for the Tennessee native’s 2013 tour. Chesney believes music is best when shared with other people, which explains why one of his most treasured moments on stage was singing “When I See This Bar” with Church.

When the song was first released, Kenny remembers the phone call he received from Eric. He called to express to Chesney how much he loved and connected with the new song. Little did Church know that phone call was going to give him an invitation to join Chesney on his No Shoes Nation tour to sing it alongside this fellow country star!

The first time the two performed Chesney’s new song live was in Milwaukee, Wisconsin! Their love for the song is very evident in this video along with the singing crowd!

“I really felt like it was a song that he really connected to and I could tell when he got up on stage every night it was a part of his heart also and I’m very proud that I got to sing this song every night with Eric Church and that we actually thought to record it in Foxboro, Massachusetts the last night of the 2013 tour,” Chesney said.

Kenny’s Trip Around The Sun tour will begin on April 21st in Tampa, Florida! His tour will consist of 18 dates and will wrap up in Boston! Tickets are on sale now! Eric’s next tour will also commence in April and tickets are also available for purchase.

“When I See This Bar” Lyrics 

Well I see the souls of so many friends
And I see us all back here again
With sandy floors and ceiling fans
A Rastafarian one-man band with songs
That fill my memories like a tip jar
Yeah, that’s what I see
When I see this bar
I see tourists at Christmas time
And I taste beers with a hint of lime
I feel lonely ’cause it’s not the same
Different faces and different names
Living like pirates out among the stars
Yeah, that’s what I see
When I see this bar
Pieces of our past slowly slip away
But time just stands still when I walk in this place
And I see a kid coming into his own
And a man learning to move on
Somehow trying to find his way
A dreamer betting on blind faith
Chasing that sun and following his heart
Yeah, that’s what I see
When I see this bar
Pieces of our past slowly slip away
But time just stands still when I walk in this place
A few have moved on back to Maine
Jacksonville and Key Biscayne
Some are still living the dream
Stuck in still life it seems
No matter where they’ve been
Or where they are
Yeah, I see ’em here
When I see this bar
When I see this bar
I wonder where we go from here
(That’s what I see when I see this bar)
Life ain’t over but it’s always near
(That’s what I see when I see this bar)
I think about all the good times that we had
(That’s what I see when I see this bar)
Makes me happy and it makes me sad
(That’s what I see when I see this bar)
How could we be so close, now so far apart
(That’s what I see when I see this bar)
That’s what I feel, that’s what I see
Yeah we were living like pirates and wannabe stars
That’s what I see when I see this bar
That’s what I see when I see this bar
