Chesney to Drop New Single on Friday

Kenny Chesney is dropping his next single, “Get Along,” on Friday:

Per the release, “Get Along” was written by Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne and is the first song off what’s described as Chesney’s “most personal album to date.” The mid-tempo track invites listeners to, as its title says, get along with others and find a way to live peacefully and in harmony.

“Some days, it’s like the world is just angry, screaming people, all harping on what’s wrong, how other people are awful. The more I move around, talking to people, though, the more I know people are seeking the same things, working hard to get by and hoping for the best for their family and friends,” Chesney says in the press release. “It’s simple, but we keep getting driven apart — and made unhappy.”

Lyrics of “Get Along” include “Get along on down the road / We’ve got a long, long way to go / Scared to live, scared to die / We ain’t perfect, but we try …;” the song invites listeners to “paint a wall, learn to dance, call your mom, buy a boat, drink a beer, sing a song, make a friend.” Chesney says he was drawn to “how good the rhythm felt,” but also to how McAnally, Copperman and Osborne “broke all this stuff down” in the song’s lyrics.

“To me, music is what you make it, and I want music that sounds good, but also gives you permission to really live. I think we can get so caught up in expectations, our own and other people’s, and we forget what matters,” Chesney says. “You know, the song says, ‘You find out when you die, the keys to heaven can’t be bought / We still don’t know what love is, but we sure know what it’s not …’ That’s real. We’re here such a short time, this song reminds us all how to get together, get along and enjoy the ride.”

New Single “Noise” Coming Thursday

New Kenny Chesney music is coming this Thursday!

“It seemed like everywhere I turn, everywhere I go, there is so much stuff coming at you,” Kenny says in a statement about the inspiration for the single. “Your phone, your car, on the streets, on TV. Everywhere it’s just so loud, so much, so many different things — all pushing buttons, being sensational, shouting for attention,” he says. “You can’t escape it, and you can’t turn it down.”

Kenny and Shane McAnally started writing the song, but then Kenny had to rush off to an important meeting — so, he says, “I actually sat in my manager’s parking lot, still working on the lines, the phrasing, the rhythms… Until finally I had to go in.” By the time the meeting was over, Shane and two other writers — Ross Copperman and Jon Nite — had not only finished the song, they’d also recorded a demo.

Kenny says the chorus for “Noise” “sums up both the state of the world and the reality of what it costs us.” It goes, “We scream, we shout til we don’t have a voice/In the streets, in the crowds, it ain’t nothing but noise… drowning out all the dreams of this Tennessee boy/Just trying to be heard… in all this noise.”

Kenny Talks About His New Single “Save It For A Rainy Day”

In its first week out, Kenny Chesney’s “Save It For A Rainy Day” was the most added single on country radio.

Chesney explains how he picked the track as his new single, “It’s a hard choice because there’s a lot songs on this record I think would sound great on the radio, that speak to the No Shoes Nation…. But ‘Save It For A Rainy Day’ we can all use.

“The idea is, why lose another beautiful day over something out of our control? Whatever it is, a girlfriend leaving, a crummy boss, something else, the reality is pretty simple: they don’t care that they’re ruining your day. And they’re not, you are! It’s your choice how you’re going to feel… a lot more than any of us realize.”

He goes on to explore the theme of the song, which was written by Andrew Dorff, Matt Ramsey and Brad Tursi. “We all go through stuff,” Chesney laughs. “And you know, you can get so caught up in what I did wrong, or trying to take the blame, and you start missing out on everything else… We all make mistakes, we all screw up, but we’re also – I think most of us – good people trying to do right, and have some fun while we’re here! Friends, family, the moments, that’s the stuff that’s so easy to miss, and this song makes it so easy to figure out.”

Chesney Speaks Out on Women’s Image in Today’s Country

In a great, wide-ranging interview with Radio.com, Kenny Chesney touched on the representation of women in today’s country music:

“In the last several years, a lot of the songs about women have been written in kind of an objectifying way,” he says. “If you didn’t wear cut-off jeans or a bikini top, or sit on a tailgate and drink, then you really weren’t worthy, you didn’t really add up. But ‘Wild Child’ is telling some girl out there that’s got dreams, that’s a free spirit, who’s smart and interesting, that she has a chance, that she is worthy.”

Chesney grew up in Luttrell, Tenn., and says that he was surrounded by a family with “a lot of women” during his years as a high school athlete and marketing major at East Tennessee State. “All the women that have been in my life — in my family or that I chased, fell in love with and out of love with, my island friends, my hippie New England friends — they all had this idea of the ‘wild child’ in them, and I thought about all of them when I was writing the song. I think it’s an important song, because it’s saying that they don’t have to be this one thing that’s been sung about over and over again recently. And I’m proud of that, that we wrote a song that lifts up a woman in that way.”
