– Kenny Chesney released the video for his new single, "Get Along," today.
Chesney who releases "Songs for the Saints" on July 27, recorded the video at his Trip Around the Sun Tour at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.
"The whole point of the song is to look for your common ground instead of worrying about your differences," Chesney said. "And when I look out into the crowd, that's what I see: people who are having a great time, getting along and making the most of every single minute."
Mostly documentary from the parking lots, the stands, the sand bar and the stage, Shaun Silva directed. The video also includes a group jam from rehearsal, a take on "Get Along" from the Buccaneers pirate ship and a run through the song on a pontoon boat in the middle of one of the lots.
"It takes a lot to try to keep up with the No Shoes Nation," Chesney said. "With their rolling Tiki Bars, tons of sand, Blue Chair Bay cocktails and wading pools. They have as much fun waiting to get into the show as they do at the concerts, and I love that. I wanted this video to be a mix of how their world works and the way their passion inspires all of us up onstage."
"It made for a couple long days, doing a video the same time we were starting a tour...But I wouldn't have changed anything for the world."
