Back in 2012, co-country music stars Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw teamed-up in a feel-good duet. The said collaboration was intended for the recording of the song “Feel Like a Rockstar.” Also, this commenced their tour together six years ago. Considering them being two of the most celebrated artists in country music, it’s highly expected the act would be a tremendous success. And it was!

On April 1, 2012, the duo had a premiere performance of “Feel Like a Rockstar” at the Academy of Country Music Awards show. A few days later, the song skyrocketed to No. 13 on Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. That made Chesney set a new record of a highest-debuting single. In 2007, Chesney reached this milestone in his career with his single Don’t Blink” debuting at No. 16. Thanks to McGraw’s presence which contributed to the success of the upbeat song. It just missed entering the chart’s Top 10 though peaking at No. 11.

Additional Facts of the Song

“Feel Like a Rockstar” is the first single from Chesney’s 13th studio album, Welcome to the Fishbowl. Rodney Clawson and Chris Tompkins penned the tune. In an interview, one of the songwriters shared how the idea of the song was conceived. Accordingly, Tompkins started it with just a bass guitar line. Then, the observation that “everybody wants to feel like a rock star” came into play. It started with such idea and eventually ended into a feel-good song. Given those factors, it is just fitting that the song is set to an upbeat tempo.

The high debut that the song achieved was mainly attributed to the high air plays it received from radio stations. According to a survey conducted by Billboard, the song reached 979 plays the day after the broadcast. Chesney has said the following about the song’s achievement,

  “This song was such a blast to record, and I’m thrilled at the response it’s already received.”
