17 Years Ago: Kenny Chesney Hits #1 With “The Good Stuff”
Sometimes you have a fight with a family member; whether it's your husband, wife, mom, dad, brother or sister.
At the moment, it seems like the most important thing going on...but after the fact, you're wondering why you were even fighting? Maybe something happens that puts it into perspective and you understand what's really important.
"The Good Stuff" by Kenny Chesney is that scenario in song form.
Released in May of 2002, it would go on to reach #1 on the Mediabase and Billboard country airplay charts that summer and spend an amazing seven weeks at #1 and be named the biggest hit of the year in 2002 by Billboard.
Written by Craig Wiseman and Jim Collins, the song would go on to be one of Kenny's biggest chart hits. The only song that spent as many weeks at #1 for Kenny was his 2003-2004 single, "There Goes My Life."
Even as a kid, I knew how good this song was. It's written in a way that makes you really consider what others might have gone through and to appreciate what you do have.
