All I Need to Know

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Kenny Chesney's second full-length, All I Need to Know was his breakthrough record, the first to spawn country Top Ten singles, here in the form of the slow slick title track and the sprightly "Fall in Love," both of which go a long way toward illustrating how much more assured he sounds throughout the album.
