– Kenny Chesney revealed the cover art for his upcoming disc, Cosmic Hallelujah." Chesney also announced the disc would contain 11 songs.
"I've been blessed with some of the best songs out there, some songs written, actually, just for this album by writers whose work I've loved for years," Chesney said. "When 'Setting The World On Fire' came together, it opened a window of time - and some songs that had come in after we were done, I didn't have to save for the next album. Suddenly, everything was changing, and the album I'm releasing now has a lot of what made 'Some Town Somewhere' capture the essential part of who the No Shoes Nation is, but really takes the your-life-is-now piece of 'The Big Revival' and expands it.
"And there's one very special song I've been holding for years called 'Coach' that we went in and re-cut," said Chesney. "It really captured that song's heart."
P!NK sings with Chesney on the single "Setting The World On Fire." He also released a single with "Noise," which was not a big hit.
"Cosmic Hallelujah" includes "Some Town Somewhere," "Trip Around the Sun," the Tom Petty-esque coming-of-age, "All The Pretty Girls," the romance of "Bar at The End of the World," the leaving town-themed "Winnebago," the homage to small town dives, "Jesus and Elvis" and "Bucket," plus the priority questioning, "Rich and Miserable."
Matraca Berg, Hayes Carll, Hillary Lindsey, Shane McAnally, Allison Moorer, David Lee Murphy, Jon Nite, Josh Osborne and Craig Wiseman are among the songwriters. Moore also sings on "Jesus & Elvis."
