No Shoes Nation should be happy with this news.

Kenny Chesney announces his new album, BORN, is slated to release on March 29th. Chesney teased that a new album was in the works earlier this month, and he was quick on the turnaround, revealing the name and release date.

BORN will be the first album the East Tennesseean since his 2020 project Here And Now. Chesney shared that he took a drastically different approach to this album and is excited to get it out there.

“Normally, we wait until it’s all figured out, the T’s are crossed, the I’s are dotted. But everything about this record’s been different – from how much time we’ve spent, the different ways we recorded and wrote and found songs – so why not let the fans know as we’re finishing up? We make this music for them, so, here you go.

It’s official: BORN, March 29 – and you’ve seen the cover. Now to the final line-up, and maybe getting a couple more out there.”

Chesney has already released “Take Her Home” as the lead track for the album, and fans are loving it, landing the single on the country music charts. “Take Her Home” is a strong start for what else is in store on this album… and Chesney hopes that fans like the title track “Born” just as much.

“As for the title, well, we’re still not quite done deciding what’s going on here, but one thing’s for sure: BORN is absolutely the title track. It’s got a lot of heart, a lot of soul – and it speaks the truth about living life and what we’re all doing here. Banjo out front, a great big pocket that rocks back and forth, it feels great.

But more importantly, it’s a lyric that throws out all the options, never tells you what to do and throws out the one existential truth no matter what you choose: ‘one thing’s for certain, we’ve all been living since the day we were born.’”

Just off that description, I am very excited to see what the title single holds.

Kenny Chesney hopes that the music from BORN resonates deeply with No Shoes Nation, with messaging that highlights the story of who we are as humans, love, friendships, and loss.

“You never want to think it’s all about you, or that in this crazy world, it’s all about your music. I’m just trying to find songs that continue the story of who we are…how we live, breathe, work, rock, kick back and sometimes get tangled up in feelings that are anything but simple. Then you see people react the way they have to the news, and you go, ‘Well, okay…’”

I guess summer will officially start in March with the release of BORN. 

Shortly after the album release, Chesney will embark on his extensive Sun Goes Down 2024 Tour, spanning 23 stadiums. Chesney also added more dates to Foxborough’s Gillette Stadium amid ticket demand.

No Shoes Nation can’t get enough.
