Kenny Chesney dropped his uplifting new single, “Get Along,” on April 6.
Penned by Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne, the mid-tempo tune beckons listeners to live the Kenny lifestyle with lyrics like “buy a boat, drink a beer, sing a song, make a friend.” 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.” Kenny’s new single is expected to be the first song from his upcoming 17th studio album. Kenny will kick off his Trip Around the Sun Tour on April 21.
