Kenny Chesney will return to radio airwaves on April 6 with a new single, “Get Along.”
Penned by Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne, the mid-tempo tune will the be the first single from Kenny’s upcoming 17th studio album.
Kenny is hoping the song’s positive theme will help folks find common ground during divisive times.
“Some days, it’s like the world is just angry, screaming people, [who are] all harping on what’s wrong, how other people are awful,” says Kenny. “The more I move around, talking to people, though, the more I know people are seeking the same things, working hard to get by and hoping for the best for their family and friends. It’s simple, but we keep getting driven apart—and made unhappy. When I heard this song, beyond how good the rhythm felt, I was amazed how simply they broke all this stuff down. Get along . . . find the common ground . . . know the basic stuff is where the joy, the love, the happiness is.”
Lyrics featured in the new song include:
- Get along on down the road / We’ve got a long, long way to go / Scared to live, scared to die / We ain’t perfect, but we try
- Paint a wall, learn to dance, call your mom, buy a boat, drink a beer, sing a song, make a friend
- You find out when you die, the keys to heaven can’t be bought / We still don’t know what love is, but we sure know what it’s not
Kenny will kick off his Trip Around the Sun Tour on April 21.
