Kenny Chesney has released his next single off his latest album Cosmic Hallelujah: “All The Pretty Girls”

“All the Pretty Girls” is a throwback to the old-school Chesney energy that his fans can’t seem to get enough of. Written by Nicolle Galyon, Tommy Lee James and Josh Osborne, the song was an automatic “must-record” when Chesney listened to it.

“When I heard it, when we made this record, just the whole chorus of that song, I thought about my connection with the audience, and I thought about the energy we have onstage,” Chesney tells Taste of Country. “I think about all the love and passion that those fans out there — we call ‘em No Shoes Nation — I think about all the energy that they throw back at us. I thought about that a lot when I was making this record, especially “All the Pretty Girls,” because I just know that that’s going to make the show even better.”

On Sunday night, Kenny Chesney headlined the Stagecoach Music Festival in California.

No Shoes Nation was in full force Sunday night and while Chesney led off the night with “Have Another Beer in Mexico,” the beer was being raised high all night in Indio.

Chesney wasted no time at all, going from song to song, unleashing one number one hit after another with songs like “Somewhere with You,” and “I Go Back.”

There was no time for small talk as Chesney rolled out an hour and a half of nothing but his greatest hits.

One of the most memorable, and arguably the cutest moment of Chesney’s performance was the duet of “Setting the World On Fire.”

No, Pink didn’t make a surprise appearance, but rather, Chesney pulled a young girl from the audience to help sing along and with the support of the crowd and Chesney, she absolutely nailed it.

Chesney Reflects on Loss of Jonathan Demme

If you’re aware of who Jonathan Demme is, it’s probably as the director for movies like ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ and ‘Philadelphia,’ but he also directed the Kenny Chesney production “American Express Unstaged” in 2012. Demme passed away on Wednesday:

“Jonathan Demme understood how to capture music on film in a way that kept the heart and the energy intact,” Chesney tells Rolling Stone about working with the legendary filmmaker. Demme died on Wednesday (April 26) from cancer and heart disease. He was 73.

“I learned so much watching him work when he shot our show in Wildwood, N.J., about songs I already knew — and his love for how music looks when it’s being played live has stayed with me,” Chesney adds.

The country star’s Unstaged show was live-streamed on YouTube from Wildwood Beach, N.J., and reached people globally, but even more impressive, 20,000 fans showed up to see the concert in person. Chesney, a 2017 Country Jam headliner, performed almost 30 songs from his expansive catalog, including classics like “You and Tequila,” “Somewhere With You” and his early hit “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy.” The release of the film was in partnership with the launch of Chesney’s 2012 album, Welcome to the Fishbowl, which topped Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and includes the two Top 10 singles “Come Over” and “El Cerrito Place.”

Kenny Chesney isn’t doing many shows this year, and he’s taking the chance to play tourist:

The superstar from East Tennessee most recently engaged his wanderlust on an excursion to Europe.

“There’s a lot of places that I’m curious about,” Kenny says. “I love being a tourist. I went to Italy this past year and I loved it because I love to eat,” he laughs.

“I love red wine so it was a lot of fun. I grew up loving cheese, tomatoes,” the notorious fitness buff goes on. “All that’s in Italy. I love it and… I love being a tourist when I can be.”
