Kenny Chesney Says A New Album Is Coming This Year: “There Is So Much To Say”

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve gotten a new album from one of the all time mainstream country music greats, Kenny Chesney.

We haven’t gotten a full-length album from the Tennessean since his 2020 Here And Now project. In fact, the only single he’s released since then has been his November release of “Take Her Home.” However, that’s all about to change, as the man himself has announced his latest project is currently in the works as we speak, slated for a 2024 release.

Chesney has some high hopes for this new album:

“I’m ready. Because of the amount of time we’ve had to work… and not just work, but really just hang out, write, experiment and play with different kinds of music. I got to go places, do some things we wouldn’t normally try because we have such a clear vision of what we’re trying to do.
Of course, I have to figure out which of the songs makes this record… what or why we’re holding some of these recordings for… and what’s the best collection of songs we can give No Shoes Nation. We’ve been having an ongoing conversation about life, love, friendships, what we lose and the people we remember since ‘Young,’ and that’s something I’m mindful of.”

He also says that the album will have several of his co-writes, and it might contain more songs on the track list than he normally has:

“I never want to just force songs on a record because I wrote them. But I love the process of writing, whether I’m writing with friends or new people… It opens up how you see the world, and music. But I’ve got four or five that I feel pretty sure are gonna be on this album.

There is so much to say – and sing – about lives people between the coasts are experiencing. It doesn’t take a lot to be happy, if you choose to seek it, just like the passion people beyond New York and L.A. employ every day is every bit as thrilling.

To me, that’s what my songs are made of… and looking at this list, I wouldn’t be surprised if this record comes in a little bit longer than normal, because there are too many good songs to leave behind.”

Keep your eyes peeled for this release date, but in the meantime, you can see Kenny on the road for his upcoming Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour.
