Kenny Chesney‘s latest album, Here and Now, is set for release on May 1 via Warner Music Nashville. The album follows Chesney’s first project with Warner, 2018’s charity album Songs for the Saints.
Here and Now was written and recorded over the last 18 months with co-producer/longtime collaborator Buddy Cannon and Ross Copperman, and includes the first single, “Here And Now,” which is already rising at radio.
“One of the things I really wanted (for Here and Now) was to bring a lot of my favorite writers together, not to do ‘writing camp,’ but just hang out and talk, remember when it was the stories and laughs that sparked songs, not sitting down to churn out something to cut,” Chesney said.
“You know, it’s going to have a high fun factor,” he continues. “People work hard, and need music that makes them smile, that kicks them into a happy place. There are also songs here that look at very specific people, that tell one person’s story, but it could be any of us. That’s the mark of a good song: let one person’s specific life say so much about a lot of people’s lives. When you’re this far into a career, I think artists need to keep pushing themselves and the music without losing sight of who they are, or forgetting the people you make music for. No Shoes Nation is a very passionate place without borders; I get inspired every time I see and hear them.”
By the time the album drops Chesney will be in full swing on his Blue Chair Bay Rum Presents the Chillaxification Tour fueled by Marathon which kicks off April 18 at AT&T Stadium in Texas and runs through the summer.
