Kenny Chesney released his new single, “Here and Now,” on Feb. 21.
Penned by Craig Wiseman, David Garcia and David Lee Murphy at a writing retreat Kenny set up in Malibu, the new tune beckons listeners to live in the present with a chorus that proclaims: “You and me, ain’t it good to be alive / Ain’t no better place, ain’t no better time / Than here and now.”
“This song kind of blew my mind,” says Kenny. “The chorus is everything I feel about my time onstage with No Shoes Nation . . . the rush of it absolutely being the best place, best moment in the entire world. There’s no rush like it.
“I know there will days and moments that suck, but so many of them, we can decide how we feel and what we want to focus on. I’m hoping No Shoes Nation—and everyone else—can hear this and feel really good about the moment.”
“Here and Now,” which will serve as the lead single to Kenny’s upcoming album that’s slated to drop this spring, follows his recent Top 10 single, “Tip of My Tongue.”
