"Living In Fast Forward" is the title of a song written by David Lee Murphy and Rivers Rutherford, and recorded by American country music singer Kenny Chesney that reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. It was released in January 2006 as the second single from Chesney's album The Road and the Radio.[1]

Background and content

Chesney says the song "defines how I've lived my life in the last several years. Because it has happened so quick. And I say it's happened so quick. I mean, I've been doing it for 12 years. But the last four to five years, it's been an amazing thing to live through and to see happen to you and to see your fan base grow to a point where it's unbelievable to stand in front of that microphone every night and see how passionate they are about your music. ... More importantly, how much fun they're having with it ... out in the parking lots before the show and during the show. It's everything I ever dreamed of and more."[2]

Music video

The music video was directed by Shaun Silva and was released in December 2005. This video, like the one for "Summertime," was filmed on tour, but while the former shows the actual show, this one is more of the behind-the-scenes.

"Living in Fast Forward" debuted at number 54 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of November 19, 2005.
