Kenny Chesney to Co-Produce David Lee Murphy

Kenny Chesney to Co-Produce Upcoming Album by David Lee Murphy

David Lee is the original—and the last of—the hillbilly rockstars,” says Kenny

Singer/songwriter David Lee Murphy, who’s probably best known for his 1995 No. 1 hit, “Dust on the Bottle,” has been cranking out No. 1 tunes as a songwriter for more than 20 years, including Jason Aldean’s “Big Green Tractor,” Blake Shelton’s “The More I Drink,” Kenny Chesney’s “Til It’s Gone” and more. The drop date for No Zip Code has not been released yet.

In fact, David Lee has become a frequent songwriting contributor on Kenny’s albums over the years, having co-penned tunes such as “Live a Little,” “Living in Fast Forward,” “Winnebago,” “Pirate Flag” and “Bar at the End of the World.” Now, Kenny is returning the favor for all of David Lee’s hard work over the years

Kenny and Buddy Cannon will co-produce David Lee’s upcoming album, No Zip Code, which will be released via Reviver Records. “I didn’t think I’d ever get out here and do this again,” says David Lee about cutting a new album. “You focus on writing, and that’s its own kind of great.

But Kenny and I got to talking, and it seemed like something worth doing. Then when we got in the studio, it felt so good, every day was more exciting than the one before.”

“David Lee is the original—and the last of—the hillbilly rockstars,” says Kenny. “His groove, the way he lays into a melody is so smooth, yet he uses the words for shaping the rhythm. He knows the life, and he bottles it up in song. Making this record showed us what country music can be in the 21st century.”
