Chesney releases track list for "Here and Now"

Thursday, March 26, 2020 – Kenny Chesney released the 11-song track list for his upcoming disc, "Here and Now," dropping May 1 on his new label, Warmer Music Nashville.

The release is said to be a mix of country rock, class country and sea shanties.

"I'd say it's weird, the way people hear songs, and say, 'That's me'," Chesney said "except I can't tell you how many times I've said, 'That's me.' When it started happening, I was honored... and as it went on, I started to realize how important music is in all of our lives. It's a life raft, a coach cheering for you, a shoulder to cry on, a reason to take stock."

"When I'm listening to songs in the studio, actually putting a record together, I'm thinking about that. I'm thinking about Vibe Room conversations, people I meet moving around, the stories I'm told... the reasons people connect with the songs. I don't take it lightly, even when the song is supposed to be fun."

"Here And Now" is the follow up to "Songs for the Saints."

"It's funny how you cut a song because you believe in what it says, or think it captures what No Shoes Nation teaches me every day," he said. "But then the world turns, and suddenly, it truly is right now. And when I looked at these songs, this dozen recorded over the last two or three years, they were Polaroids from the parking lots, back home, the islands, my friends' lives. Every single one is someone I know, you know or may even be - and right now, our friends are absolutely the most precious thing we have."

The track list is:
We Do
Here And Now
Everyone She Knows
Wasted
Knowing You
Heartbreakers
Someone To Fix
Happy Does
Tip of My Tongue
You Don't Get To
Beautiful World
Guys Named Captain

CD reviews for Kenny Chesney

CD review - Here and Now For many years now, Kenny Chesney has been the number one yacht country artist; one never spotted far from an ocean or without an adult beverage in his hand. However, this album's title track expresses a much deeper perspective on life. "I must've sat on a dozen islands/Watched the sun sink into the sea." Previously, island living was the reason for life. Now, life's purpose is described as much more internal than external. Call it trading that pirate flag for a little more mindfulness. ...
CD review - Songs for the Saints Kenny Chesney's "Song for the Saints" is a step in the right direction for the popular country star. Inspired by the Hurricane Irma disaster, which hit Chesney personally as it destroyed a house he owned in the U.S. Virgin Islands, these songs are more serious and heartfelt than typical Chesney music. Best of all is "Love for Love City," a reggae duet with Ziggy Marley incorporating steel drums into an inviting island mix. It's followed by a cover of Lord ...
CD review - Live in No Shoes Nation: 10 Years of Concerts Kenny Chesney's "Live in No Shoes Nation" accurately recreates an experience of seeing the diminutive party animal live. Chesney has found an extremely lucrative niche as country music's Jimmy Buffett (although much of Buffett's island-y pop music appeals to many of today's non-discerning country music listeners). Also, with songs like "Pirate Flag," Chesney has even borrowed a few of Buffett's sea-related lyrical themes. This live CD could have been ...
