Reality Deconstructed

Log-in to read this report »

Written by Kenny Chesney and Brett James, Reality was the 5th single released from Chesney’s Hemingway’s Whiskey album, hitting #1 on the Billboard Country Songs Chart during the week of March 17, 2012.

As you’ll see throughout Reality’s Deconstruction, the song contains core attributes such as a strong, engaging intro and memorable chorus that aided in its rise to #1, but also possesses key flaws such as a lackluster vocal performance from Chesney that no doubt accelerated its quick fall from the top. Two weeks after hitting #1, Reality didn’t even crack the Country Songs top 40.

Star power can get you there, but the song itself will determine for how long!

Check out the full report to see what worked, what didn’t, and what can be learned from Kenny Chesney’s Reality.
