Chesney celebrates Valentine's Day with new single

Tuesday, January 25, 2022 – 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."

This one wasn't strictly personal, as the "Chillaxification" Tour got waylaid by a pandemic shutdown that scrapped most everything. The loss really belonged to the fans, as the original "Here and Now" record Chesney was supporting was a beauty – from the stirring "Knowing You" to the snarky "Wasted", ...
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 ...
