Chesney delays disc, no reason cited

Tuesday, July 5, 2016 – Kenny Chesney will have to wait longer to make some "noise" for his next CD.

The release, "Some Town, Somewhere," was slated to drop this Friday , but now the release has been put off until later this year with no reason given.

Chesney's publicist, Ebie McFarland, indicated a few weeks ago that the release may be pushed back. On Tuesday, she said via email that was "no update on date to share yet, but it will be later this year."

When asked why the release was being delayed, McFarland wrote, "no other info to share right now."

The new disc will be Chesney's first since 2014's "The Big Revival." "Noise" was the first single from the release. Shane McAnally ("Somewhere With You," "American Kids"), Josh Osborne ("Wild Child," "Come Over"), David Lee Murphy ("Pirate Flag," "Living In Fast Forward"), Ross Copperman ("Pirate Flag") and Matraca Berg ("You & Tequila") plus Allison Moorer, Hayes Carll and Texas singer/songwriter John Ed Baumann all wrongs on the CD. Long-time producer Buddy Cannon was at the helm with Chesney.

There was no word on whether Chesney was recording new songs for the project. He currently is on a full-scale U.S. tour

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 ...
