Story Behind The Song: Kenny Chesney's "Pirate Flag"

With "Pirate Flag," Kenny Chesney debuts a song that is more than what it appears to be on the surface. It's more than 'just another island-themed' song from Kenny Chesney. Read on to learn what songwriter David Lee Murphy has to say about the creation of the new hit from Life On A Rock.

"They sent it to Kenny, and Kenny liked it," adds Murphy. "It just sounded like Kenny to me … just like him.
