Kenny makes history with Get Along, he now has the most #1 hits on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.
“I can’t think of a better song to set a record,” says Chesney in a press release about the song, which is an ode to hope and optimism. “Everything it says is everything I think makes the world a better place.
To have something that has a groove that feels so good wrapped around a song that reminds us it’s the things that bring us together that will make us happy.
When you get right down to it, Get Along is a great way to have some pretty important life advice delivered.”
“In some ways, Get Along is very different from the rest of Songs for the Saints,” Chesney continues in the release. “But in a lot of ways, it boils down every other subject onto the record and ties it up with a perfect bit of the euphoria that defines the people of the Saints.
It was an obvious choice for radio, but it also embodies everything else on a record which lifts up everything that has inspired my music over the last eighteen years.”
Chesney concludes about his #1 song, “This didn’t come from anywhere but my heart, my soul and my concern for a lot of people who’ve given me a lot of their life.
When it’s good, lots of people get inspired, get in gear and find their better selves. To start Songs for the Saints this way feels like a really good beginning.”
Kenny just released a new song, Better Boat, also off of Songs for the Saints.
Chesney recently had his 29th #1 with David Lee Murphy EveryThing’s Gonna Be Alright.
Kenny Chesney is on his Trip Around the Sun stadium tour. It started April 21st, 2018 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
According to Pollstar, Kenny’s tour is one of the top five money makers for North America. Impressive since his ticket prices are typically much lower than other touring artists.
Kenny says “What we do isn’t just country, it’s life.” “For the people who come every summer,” “whether they love rock or pop or whatever, they’re gonna feel the music, but they also know they’ve lived these songs.
For me, it’s the artists who rock me, who make me feel something, whose music is part of my life that I go back to again and again, and that’s what I try to give the fans every single night we hit the stage.”
