Chesney Scores 30th Number One Song

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.”

Hear Chesney’s New “Better Boat” Music

Kenny Chesney has released another song frim his upcoming album Song for the Saints.

Written by Travis Meadows and Liz Rose and featuring background vocals from “Come to Jesus” singer Mindy Smith, the quiet tune also rings with gut-string guitar lines courtesy of perennial CMA Musician of the Year Mac McAnally. It’s all about finding positivity and inner strength in the face of adversity, and Chesney says the song’s philosophical theme perfectly captures the emotion of the months following Hurricane Irma, which devastated the U.S. and British Virgin Islands last fall.

“Now and then I let it go / I ride the waves I can’t control / I’m learning how to build a better boat,” he sings in the song’s chorus.

More New Music from Kenny: “Pirate Song”

Kenny Chesney has released another new song from his upcoming album Songs for the Saints: “Pirate Song”

The wistful, breezy tune finds Chesney’s thoughts drifting once more toward the Caribbean, as has been the case on other tracks from his forthcoming album Songs for the Saints, which will benefit Virgin Island communities after they experienced mass destruction from Hurricane Irma in 2017. But this time Chesney allows himself some escapist fantasies, dreaming of señoritas and a taste of rum on his tongue. He skips over the looting and pillaging part, but does make reference to cannon smoke, suggesting there’s still room for some conflict. Things even get a little mystical as Chesney longs to sail a ghost ship, though his desires here remain mostly earthbound.

Pre-order Songs for the Saints at Amazon or iTunes.

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.”

Listen to “Song For The Saints” Title Track

Kenny Chesney has released the title track for his upcoming album ‘Song for the Saints’:

“Song for the Saints” opens softly, with the strums of an acoustic guitar as Chesney sings, “Long before a boat anchored the harbor / Long before steel drums filled the breeze / God lifted these islands from the ocean / They stood strong for centuries / So it’s fitting that they were named after men with golden halos / ‘Cause angels don’t give in just ’cause a little wind blows …” Chesney owned a home on the island of St. John, which Hurricane Irma left devastated in the late summer and early fall of 2017; he was inspired to write Songs for the Saints after seeing firsthand how residents of the Virgin Islands came to together after Irma and Hurricane Maria.

“There’s so much to say, and so much music on this record. Knowing where to start was hard and easy, because this is the song that really holds everything together,” Chesney says in a press release. “It’s a tribute to those islands and their unstoppable spirit. Even as people were coming off the islands — some just to not tax the limited resources — so many of my friends were digging in, trying to figure out what needed to be done and getting on to the work of clearing debris, creating habitable space for those staying and reminding all of us how Island Strong they all are.”

Watch the Music Video for “Get Along”

Kenny Chesney has released a music video for his latest single “Get Along”:

Directed by Shaun Silva and filmed largely amid the citizens of Chesney’s No Shoes Nation, the video captures a sunny spectacle of good times as fans party outside Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium – the first stop of his 2018 Trip Around the Sun Tour. Shots of mobile tiki bars and parking lot beach parties are mixed in with impromptu performances, including one from the deck of a pontoon boat towed out into the crowd.

With its rolling banjo riff and sing-along ready chorus, “Get Along” is the optimistic first single from Chesney’s seventeenth studio album, Songs for the Saints – a project the superstar says was inspired by the way his friends and neighbors in the Virgin Islands bounced back after Hurricane Irma in 2017.
