"There is so much more to being
alive than partying, tailgates and bonfires. It's every single detail of being young, growing up,
remembering when, laughing about how, but especially knowing you can still do all those things!
American kids are so much more complicated, more fun, more real - and if there's anything about
this song, beyond the rhythms, the hooks and the playing, that I love, it's the fact that
it captures all the little things that life really is made of."
From the Album
"It's not a perfect world, We are all a little screwed up, but we're all okay. I love the idea of
the screw up as part of it, because honestly it makes the parts that're great, that much better.
You appreciate those things that much more."

Chesney told Entertainment News:
"The spirit of this thing - the song, the bus, the idea of the kids riding around, having fun, playing music
and just celebrating life - makes you want to get involved.
Fun is where and how you make it. Out in the sun with a bunch of friends - and the people
who work on my videos have been making them with me for more than a decade - even buckets of
paint and a bus that needs to be covered can give you a reason to have fun."
