Kenny Chesney’s new album Songs for the Saints has debuted at number one on the Billboard Country Albums chart as well as number two on the all-genre Top 200 chart.

“All I knew was that I was so scared for a lot of people and places that I really loved,” said Chesney of the inspiration. “I was anxious, and I was thousands of miles away. I needed to do something, something that would let those people know they weren’t gonna be forgotten when the news cycle moved on. I had no idea it would be an album, but the songs were something they could sing. And now here we are.”

According to Nielsen, in its first week, the project has sold in excess of 64,600 copies, with consumption bringing the total to 77,300.

“This album means the world to me, because of what it’s about and what it means to the people of the Virgin Islands,” Chesney shared. “A lot of who I am is because of the time I’ve spent down there, and how it’s shaped the man I’ve become. It’s how I see the world, and how my music has evolved. So the fact No Shoes Nation has supported this record – a record where all the proceeds go to island recovery – does my heart good.”

Kenny Chesney has set a new record, scoring his 30th number one single on the Country Airplay chart:

Kenny Chesney’s “Get Along” ascends 2-1 in its 15th week on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart (dated July 21), as it increases 7 percent to 46.2 million audience impressions in the tracking week ending July 15, according to Nielsen Music.

“Along” marks Chesney’s 30th Country Airplay leader, lifting him into first place for the most No. 1s in the chart’s archives, dating to the list’s Jan. 20, 1990, launch. Chesney passes Tim McGraw, now in second place with 29 No. 1s. Alan Jackson and George Strait follow with 26 each.

“Get Along’ felt like such an important idea, beyond how great the song itself feels,” Chesney tells Billboard. “I think with all the anger in the world, the idea of finding what we have in common and working from there struck a nerve with people, because I can hear how much they mean it when they sing it back to me night after night. This isn’t just a party tune to them; it’s something they believe.”

Chesney continues, “Because of that, for it to be my 30th No. 1, that’s awesome. I like the idea of a song about bringing people together at a time when people are craving that unity; it’s the perfect way to set a record. Something good coming from something that’s about doing good.”

David Lee Murphy and Chesney Hit Number One

David Lee Murphy is back in the number one slot on the the country singles chart for the first time in 23 years, and Kenny Chesney helped get him there.

David Lee, 59, scored the second No. 1 single of his career this week with “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright,” which features vocals from Kenny Chesney. The tune topped both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and Mediabase chart.

“When Kenny asked me about making a record, I thought that sounded like a whole lot of fun,” says David Lee. “I love to make music, just as much as I love writing songs. So, we went in without expectations, and I wouldn’t have imagined this. But it sure feels good.”

David Lee, who’s probably best known for his 1995 No. 1 hit, “Dust on the Bottle,” hadn’t scored a hit—as a singer—since 2004’s “Loco,” which reached No. 5. But over the last dozen or so years, the Illinois native has stayed busy as a songwriter, penning hits such as “Big Green Tractor” (Jason Aldean), “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not” (Thompson Square), “Anywhere With You” (Jake Owen), “The More I Drink” (Blake Shelton), “’Til It’s Gone” (Kenny Chesney) and more.

“It feels good,” says David Lee. “To know my music is hitting this kind of place in people’s hearts . . . that’s the reason I write these songs: to make people feel something about their life. So, the response when I play it live, now with the No. 1, is everything I could hope for, and I am so grateful to the Reviver Records team for believing, and to country radio for letting this music be heard. That’s how the dots get connected.”

Kenny Chesney can currently be found on two songs that are in the top 10 on the charts, a first for him in his long career.

From KWBE.com:

Eight-time Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney has a achieved a new milestone this week.

It’s the first time he’s ever had two songs in the top ten simultaneously, thanks to “Get Along” and his duet with David Lee Murphy, “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright.”

“For all the awards and number ones,” Kennys says, “I’ve never had two songs in the top ten at the same time, and it’s a pretty special rush. Having grown up listening to the radio, there’s something about a song coming out of the speakers that’s exciting.”

“Get Along” is the lead single from Kenny’s Songs for the Saints album, which comes out July 27. “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” is from David Lee’s No Zip Code record, which Kenny co-produced. It’s available now.

Chesney Notches Billboard Number One Album

Kenny Chesney has landed his eighth number one album with Live in No Shoes Nation:

Kenny Chesney became the first artist to land a live album atop the Billboard 200 in seven years as the country singer’s all-star live LP Live in No Shoes Nation debuted at Number One.

Live in No Shoes Nation sold 219,000 copies in its first week of availability, with the bulk of that total coming from a deal that coupled tickets to Chesney’s 2018 stadium tour with a free copy of the live album. However, the sales only apply to fans that redeemed a code to acquire the live album, which only a fraction of the million-plus ticket buyers did, Billboard estimates.

By finishing in the top spot, Chesney now has eight Number One albums in his catalog, only one behind Garth Brooks’ record among country artists for most chart-topping albums.

Live in No Shoes Nation is the first live album since the Hope for Haiti Now compilation in 2010 to rule the Billboard 200, and the highest-selling live album since Paul McCartney’s Back in the U.S. Live 2002 debuted with 224,000 copies 15 years ago.

Kenny Chesney has another number one hit on his hands with “All The Pretty Girls.”

Kenny Chesney’s “All the Pretty Girls” (Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville) rises 2-1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart (dated Oct. 14), increasing 7 -percent to 47 million audience impressions in the week ending Oct. 1, according to Nielsen Music. On Hot Country Songs, the single remains bulleted at its No. 7 peak.

Chesney banks his 28th Country Airplay No. 1, a roll that began more than 20 years ago on the chart dated Aug. 30, 1997, when “She’s Got It All,” his ninth entry, became his first No. 1, for three weeks.

“Few songs have as much summer in them as ‘All the Pretty Girls,’ which is why I wanted to record it,” Chesney tells Billboard of the song (which debuted on the June 17 chart, four days before summer started). “To me, there’s a special excitement that is summer and being young and alive. I think the guys caught that in the studio, and in a year that we weren’t on the road, I think I still got to be a part of No Shoes Nation’s summer through this song.”

Twenty Years Ago: Kenny’s First Number One Single

Today marks twenty years since Kenny Chesney first hit number one on the country charts.

Aug. 30 marks a big anniversary for Kenny Chesney: It was on that date, 20 years ago, that the Tennessee native reached a career turning point with “She’s Got It All,” from his fourth album, I Will Stand. The song became his first No. 1 Billboard hit on Aug. 30, 1997.

Written by Craig Wiseman and Drew Womack, “She’s Got It All” was released as the lead single from I Will Stand. It debuted on the charts in May and reached the No. 1 position several months later.

Chesney had already released six singles by the time “She’s Got It All” landed at the top of the charts. He came close to the No. 1 spot with his previous single, “When I Close My Eyes,” from his previous album, Me and You; that song came in at No. 2, narrowly failing to reach the highest position.

The multi-platinum-selling singer has gone on to have more than 20 other songs go all the way to No. 1, including “How Forever Feels,” “You Had Me From Hello,” “The Good Stuff” and “There Goes My Life.”
