"American Kids" was the first single released off of Kenny Chesney's Big Revival album in 2014. The song quickly became a major hit and reached the #1 spot on both the US Country Airplay chart and the Canada Country chart. It peaked at #2 on the US Hot Country Songs chart as well.

According to Country Weekly, Kenny was really impressed with it:

“When I heard it, I knew I was gonna cut it. It was unlike anything I’d ever heard, and I listen to a lot of songs. The rhythms, the images, the way the melody moved.. it just grabs you and holds on, but even more importantly, it feels really good.”

This is definitely an all-American song. Kenny's performance of this up-tempo tune on Jimmy Kimmel Live was high-energy and so much fun. Check it out!

LYRICS BELOW

Doublewide Quick Stop midnight T-top
Jack in her Cherry Coke town
Momma and daddy put their roots right here
'Cause this is where the car broke down
Yellow dog school bus kickin' up red dust
Pickin' us up by a barbed wire fence
MTV on the RCA, no A/C in the vents

We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
Born in the USA
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
New York to LA
We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin'
Baby, come give me a kiss
Put me on the cover of the Rolling Stone
Uptown down home American kids
Growin' up in little pink houses
Makin' out on living room couches
Blowin' that smoke on Saturday night
A little messed up, but we're all alright

Baptist church parkin' lot, tryin' not to get caught
Take her home and give her your jacket
Makin' it to second base, but sayin' you went all the way
Monday afternoon at practice
Sister's got a boyfriend daddy doesn't like
Now he's sittin' out back, 3030 in his lap
In the blue bug zapper light

We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby
Born in the USA
Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots
New York to LA
We were teenage dreamin', front seat leanin'
Baby, come give me a kiss
Put me on the cover of the Rolling Stone
Uptown down home American kids
Growin' up in little pink houses
Makin' out on living room couches
Blowin' that smoke on Saturday night
A little messed up, but we're all alright
