Kenny Chesney put some big smiles on his a lot of faces with the full length debut video of his new hit "American Kids." Rolling Stone reported on June 30, 2014 that Chesney released the video for his latest single titled "American Kids" following a teaser for the video that was released earlier to get his fans ready for his new music. Chesney also revealed the big news that more music is on the way.

Chesney is ready to bring more new music to his fans following his break from recording and hitting the road. Chesney will release his 16th album titled The Big Revival, which will arrive in stores on Sept. 23. Chesney co-produced The Big Revival with Buddy Cannon.

The new music from Chesney brings 11 new songs, including Chesney’s latest hit "American Kids", to his fans that are ready and waiting to hear the new music. Chesney also brought in some friends that will be featured on the soon-to-be released album including Grace Potter, Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski.

Chesney tied the title of his new album The Big Revival in by saying:

I went to dirt floor church revivals with my grandma as a little kid, and that power is electric. Scared me to death, but it shows you what it means to be alive. I think bringing that sort of passion to how you live your life is everything - and it's so easy to lose touch with."

Chesney has already scored big on the charts following the release of the first single from the album with "American Kids" landing in the No. 27 position, which gave Chesney his 10th song to debut in a top 30 position on Country Airplay. Chesney leads the list of country artists with Garth Brooks following in second, with seven songs debuting in the top 30 on the Country Airplay charts according to Billboard.

Chesney discussed time off from the road and taking a break before he hit the studio to work on his new music by saying:

The whole point of taking the time to get to a really creative place was to have the room to look at not what we'd done, but where we wanted to go."

Chesney also talked about the impact his fans had on creating his new music saying:

After all this time, if I can't push myself and give the fans something that inspires them, that gets them pumped up, there's no reason to just make a record to make a record."
