Rolling Stone Country has declared Kenny Chesney’s “American Kids” as their number one single of 2014.  The song was the debut release from his newest album, The Big Revival, and the folks at Rolling Stone Country were impressed because they said, “Few artists have dipped into the well of nostalgia with more success than Chesney. But what made this kicky, catchy tune remarkable is the way it allowed him to ruminate on the old days and yet produce what may be his freshest, most contemporary-sounding single ever — without pandering to current trends.”

 

Rounding out Rolling Stone Country’s top five country singles of 2014 are 2) Miranda Lambert, “Automatic”, 3) Little Big Town, “Girl Crush”, 4) Sturgill Simpson, “Turtles All the Way Down” and 5) Eric Church “Give Me Back My Hometown.”  You can see the complete list of the top 25 here.
