– Kenny Chesney is out on Valentine's Day with a new single, "Everyone She Knows."
The song is on Chesney's most recent disc, "Here and Now" and is the follow-up to his hit "Knowing You." Written by Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne, "Everyone She Knows" is a pushback on who young women are told they're supposed to be, while looking at the reality of growing up.
"I love this woman," Chesney said.. "She's found a life that works for her, and it's maybe not what her friends are doing, but it works for her. There's this idea that you get married, settle down and your life is made; but the woman in 'Everyone She Knows' is still out there, living life on her own terms, chasing her dreams and trying to balance that with what people seem to expect."
"Everyone she knows is getting healthy / She still smokes a couple when she drinks..." offers the second verse. "She's bored with all the boys / The men are too damn old."
"I think there's nothing as awesome as a woman living life the way she wants to," Chesney said. "To see someone so in love with life, so in love with the adventure, out there doing it? That's an incredible thing. I know so many women who are their own compass... and this song is for them. Wherever you are, however you are, just love the adventure and don't worry what people think."
