KC just dropped his video for Rich and Miserable. Awesome song, through and through. Told Big Red on the release day of Cosmic Hallelujah that the song very well could be his best, if not his best then damn near it; but i digress, this song is not only awesome, its now coupled with a video that absolutely does it justice.
So heres the breakdown for you: College professor rants about how people follow this path thats set for them by society that aims for acquiring money at all cost. The number one cost? The happiness of the one on the journey, thus Rich and Miserable. The prof tells all the students to go up and write something on the board that makes them happy and that they can share with the world, then he instructs them to leave the class right after. Class empties to a board full of writing, prof smiles, Kenny sings, somewhere a bald eagle screams “FREEDOM YEAH MF” or something. Unreal video.
The video is basically Kenny telling every person that believes in traveling the beaten path, to take said beaten path, roll it up, and shove it. Pretty much argues that we are all so focused on making money that we are willing to go through such insane unhappiness to do so… and for what? Because others say we should? Why should you go to college to get a degree for something so that it can sit on your shelf and you can go work in another job field anyway? Kenny changes the perspective here, man. Ya, he’s essentially saying what good is being rich if you’re going to be miserable on the way there.
Some of you idiots will absolutely say “well Kenny Chesney is a millionaire so why is he talking?”, well idiots what did the guy do to get there? I can tell you he didn’t do it studying some dumb thing that made him miserable, he did it doing what he loved.
Listen, im not telling everyone to go drop out of school and plant flowers for a living, but do it if it makes you happy. Work hard enough and it might just make a living for you. Thats basically the moral of the story with the music video by big ken here. Don’t get so caught up in the chase for money that you allow yourself to sacrifice happiness or something like that, right?
I mean thats what started this website that you’re reading this on…
Whatever, i got all deep there for a second, almost forgot my own writing style. Im back tho, now go watch this video dummies, you’ll enjoy it.
PS: sorry its a long to another blog but VEVO hasn’t released it on their site yet, but Caitlin Carter over here did us all a massive solid and posted it to her blog page somewhere over on Serius XM. So peep that and hey, you’re welcome for the extra page views Caitlin.
