NASHVILLE, TN Tuesday Sep.18.2007 / -- Kenny Chesney's new album, Just Who I AM: Pirates and Poets, is arguably one of his best yet, potently replete with hit potential material (two already with "Never Wanted Nothing More," and "Don't Blink"), including some of his best vocals ever as a recording artist.

One of those is delivered on the song called, "Shiftwork," that represents an accomplishment that evaded Garth Brooks during the height of his career, a duet with George Strait.

Garth once told us that one of his few regrets was that he couldn't talk George Strait into recording a duet with him. He said, "At the time I asked George to do a duet (when Garth was busting loose and George's camp was watching the Brooks juggernaut gain steam), we got a response back saying, 'Well, not at this time, George is still working on his own thing over here."

When, not if, "Shiftwork" is released as a single, look for it to be one of the duets to beat come awards time, including Grammy consideration.
