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.”

Kenny Chesney Changes Record Labels

In a surprising move, Kenny Chesney has left his longtime record label Sony Music Nashville for Warner Music.

“It is a big deal to change labels,” Chesney said in a statement, crediting Warner Music Nashville chairman/CEO John “Espo” Esposito, Warner Music Nashville senior VP A&R Cris Lacy and new Warner Music Group CEO, Recorded Music, Max Lousada, with shepherding the move. “But when you hear Max, Espo and Cris Lacy talk about music, about what it means and does, when you hear that passion, you can’t help but get fired up,” he explained. “To me, music is only complete when it gets to the fans and becomes part of their lives. The people at Warner understand my commitment to that idea, and they’re just as committed to those ideals as I am.”

Following the release of his 1994 debut album on Capricorn, Chesney switched to RCA Nashville’s BNA imprint for 1995’s All I Need To Know. After RCA and Sony merged, he moved over to Sony’s Columbia Nashville via his Blue Chair imprint. Future releases will now be on Blue Chair Records/Warner Bros. Records.

The move comes as Chesney’s 2016 studio album, Cosmic Hallelujah, is up for best country album at the Jan. 28 Grammy Awards. Chesney’s latest release, Live In No Shoes Nation, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country albums chart in November, making it his 15th chart topper. He has sold more than 30 million albums, according to Warner Music Nashville and logged 30 No. 1 singles.

“Kenny Chesney embodies the relentless pursuit of artistic freedom and expression,” Esposito said. “An unapologetic free spirit, he has built a career on perseverance, drive, innovation, and most especially, great songs. Everything he does is inspired. It is with deep respect and honor that we welcome Kenny to Warner Music Nashville. We couldn’t be more excited to work with him and his team.”

Lousada added, “Kenny’s not only a country music icon, but an American superstar, who’s still hungry to write, record, and perform amazing music that moves millions of people. The fact that he has chosen Warner Music as his new label home is a huge testament to the culture created by Espo and his team, who have made our Nashville operation a magnet for both emerging talent and established artists.”
