Chesney Nominated for Grammy Award

Nominations for the 60th annual Grammy Awards were announced this morning and Kenny Chesney received a nod for Country Album of the Year for ‘Cosmic Hallelujah.’

Here are the nominees he’s up against:

  • Heart Break – Lady Antebellum
  • The Breaker – Little Big Town
  • Life Changes – Thomas Rhett
  • From A Room: Volume 1 – Chris Stapleton

Kenny has been nominated five times in years past, but this is the first individual Grammy.

The Tennessee native has previously been nominated five times, including nods for duets with Pink (2016’s “Setting the World on Fire”) and Grace Potter (“You and Tequila” from 2011) and group outings with friends like Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson. But all of those were either in the duo/group or collaboration categories so this solo recognition was particularly meaningful.

That the album also took risks both creatively and promotionally makes the nomination that much sweeter for the 49-year-old singer-songwriter. While “Cosmic Hallelujah” features its share of good-time party fare, Chesney says, “’[W]e also invested in a larger dialogue about our world. Right now, it seems like that mattered more than a lot of people realized at the time.”

“For ‘Cosmic Hallelujah’ more than any album, we defied conventional wisdom every way possible,” said Chesney, noting that, among other moves, the decision was made to change the first single to the song “Noise” nine days before release because it “felt so topical and urgent.”

That song, a catchy lament for our information overloaded times hit No. 6 and was followed by two No. 1s “Setting the World on Fire” and “All the Pretty Girls.”

“This album, I did what I felt was the right thing to do for the music. People didn’t always understand,” said Chesney, who recently hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with “Live in No Shoes Nation,” a compendium of live recordings from the last decade. “But when you can put songs like ‘Noise’ onto country radio, or make videos like ‘Rich & Miserable’ with an actor like John C. McGinley — even though it’s not going to be a single —and get people to think about the world around them, that’s powerful.”

The Grammy Awards will be presented live on Sunday, January 28th on CBS.

Grammy Nomination for Kenny and Pink

Grammy nominations were recently announced and Kenny Chesney and P!NK earned a nod for “Setting The World On Fire” in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category.

“You’re kidding me,” Kenny responded, when reached somewhere on the sea. “That’s fantastic. What a thing, what news to wake up to.”

“When I heard the song, I knew it was pretty special,” Kenny continued, speaking of the two-week Country No. 1 and the Top 20 Hot AC – and still rising – single. “But when we got P!NK on there, it was something else. She captures all the emotion, all the joy of being alive, being free and in the moment – and brought everything inside the song to life. I couldn’t be happier this morning, knowing the people who vote for the GRAMMYs heard in that song all the things that I do.”

Recorded in Los Angeles, the Josh Osborne/Ross Copperman/Matt Jenkins song – ironically inspired by one of the co-writer’s own first trip to the GRAMMYs – became the second single from Kenny’s unconventional Cosmic Hallelujah. As Kenny said upon releasing the track to radio, “I knew the moment I heard this song, it was exactly the moment of life and love exploding, and everything turning Technicolor. Finding songs that are in the moment are harder, in this kind of moment, it’s almost impossible. And the idea of bringing P!NK in adds to that sense of this song is happening as we sing it. It’s funny how people respond to stuff that feels real and right now.”

The 59th annual Grammy awards will air February 12th from Los Angeles on CBS.
