Looking to warm up during this cold winter? Well No Shoes Nation, Kenny Chesney’s ‘Pirate Flag’ video is available today! You’ll be jetting off to the islands after this one! The video instantly brings the song’s lyrics to life with some of Kenny’s favorite things: sun, sand, beautiful women and his No Shoes Nation fans.
Directed by Shaun Silva, the video features Kenny, beautiful women, gorgeous island beaches, boats, and of course, pirate flags. Kenny’s famous Old Blue Chair even appears in the video. This is “life on a rock” Kenny Chesney style!
The multi-platinum-selling musician’s co-stars in the clip are some of the most beautiful video vixens in country music — and aren’t just pretty faces hired by casting agents. These “long-legged models” are actually the singer’s friends.
“What people might not realize about a lot of the ‘babes’ in this video is those are my friends, girls I know from the island who did the very thing this song is about – and that freedom from what’s expected just makes them shine,” Kenny said.. “I think there’s a little bit of ‘Ferris Bueller’ in all of us, and this song is all about who we’d be on a perfect day where we just said, ‘Forget about it!’ So, that’s what we tried to capture.”
“No matter how you live, there is that part of you that yearns to be free, to say, ‘What the hell …’ and just do what you want to do! That’s what this song is all about,” says Kenny. “You can just say, ‘Enough,’ even if it’s only in your mind, while you’re watching your boss’ mouth move and are dreaming of whatever gets you off … You can fly your pirate flag in your head, tack it up behind your computer at work, tattoo it under your skin – and no one has to know.”
