Kenny Chesney and summer go together like Four Loko and waking up in your neighbor’s front lawn. And with the summer just getting underway, Kenny is ready to deliver with his new single, “Tip of My Tongue.”
“It’s funny how a figure of speech can lead you to all kinds of places,” says Chesney. “You start talking, and words fall out, and anything can happen. When you go in and write on any given day, the chemistry is what it is. When the idea fell out, we all just laughed and went, ‘Well, what can we do with that?’”
Oh, and Kenny wrote this little number with a guy by the name of Ed Sheeran. You know, THAT Ed Sheeran.
“I’ve written so much with Ross Copperman, that’s always easy. He brought Ed Sheeran in, and he is such a great writer… The way creativity works in creative people is so different, but it’s always exciting. As a co-write with a new writer, it’s one of the most fun sessions I’ve done in a long time. I get why people love working with him.”
Kenny and Eddie, the duo we didn’t know we needed.
