Kenny Chesney will release a new song ahead of the May 1st release of his Here And Now album called “Knowing You” on Friday (4/10).
Kenny says of the new song, “When I heard it, ‘Knowing You’ knocked me out. It was such a classic kind of country song you don’t hear any more, and it was so pure. And then, the idea you’re wishing the best for the other person, kind of smiling, knowing just what they’re doing and thinking, ‘Yeah, go enjoy the moment…’ is something the best people in our lives make us feel.
Chesney adds, “And this song doesn’t have to be a lover who’s gone, or even a friend whose dream took them in another direction. It can be someone who’s passed away, just staring into the sunset, knowing they’re living that best part of life in heaven, maybe even looking down on you and smiling.”
He posted to Instagram, “For me, this song brought back so much of the innocent hopefulness of country music, and it reminded me of so many people. It was one of those songs I knew we had to do. #knowingyou is out Friday. Pre-order the new album #hereandnow.”
