And this summer, we’re getting a brand new Kenny Chesney record.
According to Kenny, Here And Now is going to be that signature Kenny Chesney sound.
“I’d say it’s weird, the way people hear songs, and say, ‘That’s me!’, except I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said, ‘That’s me.’ When it started happening, I was honored… and as it went on, I started to realize how important music is in all of our lives. It’s a life raft, a coach cheering for you, a shoulder to cry on, a reason to take stock. When I’m listening to songs in the studio, actually putting a record together, I’m thinking about that. I’m thinking about Vibe Room conversations, people I meet moving around, the stories I’m told… the reasons people connect with the songs. I don’t take it lightly, even when the song is supposed to be fun.”
“It’s funny how you cut a song because you believe in what it says, or think it captures what No Shoes Nation teaches me every day, but then the world turns, and suddenly, it truly is right now. And when I looked at these songs, this dozen recorded over the last two or three years, they were Polaroids from the parking lots, back home, the islands, my friends’ lives. Every single one is someone I know, you know or may even be – and right now, our friends are absolutely the most precious thing we have.”
Here And Now is set to hit shelves on May 1st, however some album releases have been pushed back amid the Coronavirus shutdown.
