Kenny Chesney's accomplishments as a performer are second to none — as evidenced by his current "Goin' Coastal" tour, and the dazzling live sets documented in his new concert film, Kenny Chesney: Summer in 3-D. But Chesney's no slouch when it comes to songwriting, either — in fact, we think Chesney's live show wouldn't be anything without his powerhouse new-country songwriting as its foundation.

To prove we're right, we give you five home videos of total amateurs doing their earnest refreshes of Chesney's material — their passion for the songs in place of Chesney's unique on-stage persona. Tell us whether you think they stand up to the originals, and also don't forget to sign up HERE for our Kenny Chesney contest on Facebook — your chance to fly to Green Bay with a friend to see Chesney live and meet the artist backstage.
