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.

Rocking a laid-back outfit including his signature cowboy hat, the country legend looked enthusiastic as he belted the tune’s hopeful lyrics. “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,” he sung. The star is no stranger the the awards show: he’s took home the Entertainer of the Year Award five times throughout his career.

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.”
