Watch Kenny Chesney Perform “Til It’s Gone” Live

Over at RollingStone.com you can watch an intimate performance of “Til It’s Gone” off the new album The Big Revival.

Those who couldn’t make it to the Georgia Theatre concert can still catch a glimpse of the show by checking out this live, unreleased clip of “‘Til It’s Gone,” making its premiere exclusively on Rolling Stone Country. Filmed toward the end of the night, it’s an intimate, no-frills performance, with Chesney and his seven-piece band playing their newest single on a stage that’s pretty much free of the lights, Jumbotrons and high-tech gadgets that’ve become staples of his 50,000-seat stadium shows.

Although he didn’t write the song — that role went to Rodney Clawson, David Lee Murphy and Jimmy Yeary — Chesney has a strong personal attachment to “‘Til It’s Gone,” a seize-the-day anthem about making the most of your time with a loved one. He also views it as a tribute to his own fan base, the “No Shoes Nation,” whose support helped send the album’s previous single, “American Kids,” to the top of the charts. (Clawson co-wrote that one, too.)

“This is a song about hanging on right where you are with someone you love,” Chesney says of “Til It’s Gone,” “be it a good buddy, a lover, or in my case, the No Shoes Nation, who’ve been here since it was me and a buncha guys in an old Silver Eagle tour bus. The idea is: be where you are, and embrace the hell out of it. When you do that, amazing things happen.”

‘The Big Revival’ Just Misses #1 Spot on Billboard 200

Late last week it looked like Kenny Chesney was headed for number one on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart with The Big Revival, but Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga edged him out by 1,000 copies.

Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s jazzy new duets album, Cheek To Cheek, debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It’s the second No. 1 for Bennett and the third for Gaga.

The standards album, released Sept. 23 on Streamline/Interscope/RPM/Columbia Records, sold 131,000 copies in the week ending Sept. 28, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It also hits No. 1 on both the Jazz Albums and Traditional Jazz Albums charts.

There was a tight race for No. 1 on the Billboard 200, as three albums were vying for the pole position. Cheek To Cheek edges out Kenny Chesney’s also-arriving The Big Revival at No. 2 (130,000). Last week’s No. 1, Barbra Streisand’s own duets album, Partners, slips to No. 3 with 127,000 (down just 35 percent).

For Chesney, The Big Revival is his 12th top 10 effort and follows 2013’s No. 1 debut Life On a Rock (153,000 sold in its first week). On the Top Country Albums chart, The Big Revival comes in at No. 1 — Chesney’s lucky 13th leader.

‘The Big Revival’ Headed for #1 on Billboard 200

Kenny Chesney’s new album The Big Revival is headed for number one on the Billboard 200 all-genre album chart:

Country superstar Kenny Chesney is heading for his eighth No. 1 album next week on the Billboard 200 chart. Industry forecasters suggest his new set, The Big Revival, may sell around 125,000 to 135,000 copies in the week ending Sept. 28. The Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville album is Chesney’s 15th studio effort, and was released on Sept. 23.

Not too far behind Chesney is Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s new duets album Cheek to Cheek. It might sell 110,000 to 120,000 copies. That sum might not be enough to capture the No. 1 slot on the Billboard 200, but it should easily top the Traditional Jazz Albums chart.

The new Billboard 200’s top 10 will be revealed on Oct. 1.

Kenny Chesney’s New Album ‘The Big Revival’ In Stores Today!

The day has finally arrived! After taking the year off to focus on the music, Kenny Chesney’s new album The Big Revival hits stores today.

Get it now at iTunes or Walmart.com.

ABC reviews the new album:

Chesney has continually tinkered with his sound, growing more introspective in recent years while remaining the king of the arena sing-along. Chesney’s forte is that even his rockers offer snapshots of the lives of his fans, as he does here on “Beer Can Chicken,” which he co-wrote. A rocker like “Drink It Up” avoids the clichés flowing through contemporary country songs by injecting some real-life gravitas.

Working with longtime co-producer Buddy Cannon, Chesney slips some modern Nashville rhythms and loops into songs like “Til It’s Gone” and “Rock Bottom,” yet holds on to the classic-rock guitar sound he loves. But the album’s most powerful moment arrives with the closer “If This Bus Could Talk,” which traces Chesney’s story from a nervous greenhorn opening for Patty Loveless in 1993 through the twists and turns of a long career.

Be sure to catch Kenny on The Today Show this morning!

Chesney to Appear All Over TV to Promote New Album

Kenny Chesney’s new album The Big Revival drops next Tuesday (9/23) and he’ll make a television blitz to promote it:

Starting with “The Today Show” on street date, Chesney will also perform on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (9/24), “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” (9/26), “CONAN” (9/29) and “The Talk” (10/2), as well as sit for interviews with both “Entertainment Tonight” and “Access Hollywood” live from Rockefeller Center (9/23).

“Normally I don’t get geared up for this much television,” Chesney says. “But this record makes me wanna get out and talk about it. Starting with ‘American Kids,’ all of the songs on here say so much about how the people who see their lives in my music commit to their lives – it’s a lot like showing their home videos on network TV! I’m gonna be sick of talking about me, but not this record; The Big Revival is a whole other kinda record for me.”

Listen to ‘The Big Revival’ from New Album

Kenny Chesney has made available for listening a third song from his new album The Big Revival, and this one’s the title track.

Listen now:


“The philosophy behind putting ‘The Big Revival’ first was to set a tone,” Chesney tells Radio.com. “There’s things about religion that I don’t necessarily agree with or understand, but I’m a big believer in spirituality — I’ve seen songs change people, and that’s spiritual.

“But ‘The Big Revival’ is really about picking yourself up off the bottom, reclaiming your soul, restarting,” he adds. “That was everything I wanted to say to my audience — and you have to think about that, you have to think, ‘Okay, we took a year off, now what am I going to say to these people, who have been there for me for a long time?’ And the idea of ‘The Big Revival’ was it.”


You can pre-order The Big Revival now at Walmart.com.
