Country music star Kenny Chesney likes boating so much, he wrote a song about it.

“Boats” from his “Lucky Old Sun” album includes the lines “vessels of freedom/harbors of healing,” which describes how he feels when he's riding the waves, according to AOL’s The Boot country music website.

“That line came from a gentleman and his daughter I met in St. Croix,” Chesney said. “I think anybody who has a boat has an emotional attachment to it. It has a way of healing a person and gives him a sense of freedom. That's where I feel the most freedom — and it's helped me heal something that needed healing.”

Chesney owns two Sea Rays, a 56- and a 60-footer.
