Kenny Chesney’s Some Town Somewhere Lands July 8

Kenny Chesney’s Some Town Somewhere Lands July 8  
Follow Up To The Big Revival Looks at the World, Life + Yes, Love
Nashville,
Tenn. (April 1, 2016) – With “Noise,” the propulsive look at sonic
overload and hyper connectivity, hitting the charts with an
unprecedented 146 reporting radio stations, Kenny Chesney struck a nerve
about the white noise overwhelming our daily lives. Look for the 8-time
Entertainer of the Year to consider the state of the world we live in,
resetting reality, drinking, dreams, love and yes, escape when he
releases Some Town Somewhere July 8.
“In
some ways, this record is more me than anything I’ve done,” Chesney
says. “You get into my head, my heart and the way so much of what’s
going on around all of us hits me. Taken as a whole, this is a record
about seizing life in all its forms: the moments you wish
wouldn’t end, the times that make you rethink your priorities, the
simple stuff that gives us balance, a few characters at the bar and the
hope that it’s all worth doing.”
Drawing
on some of his favorite writers – Shane McAnally (“Somewhere With You,”
“American Kids”), Josh Osborne (“Wild Child,” “Come Over”), David Lee
Murphy (“Pirate Flag,” “Living In Fast Forward”), Ross Copperman
(“Pirate Flag”) and Matraca Berg (“You & Tequila”) – as well as
Oscar nominee Allison Moorer, Americana Awards winner Hayes Carll and
Texas singer/songwriter John Ed Baumann, Some Town Somewhere is as musically progressive as The Big Revival
without loosing the East Tennessee songwriter’s roots. A strong melodic
sense permeates, along with a handful of wistful ballads and a few feel
good songs with some meat on their bones.
“Every
time I go into the studio, I think it’s important to bring people into
your world – and maybe give them back a piece of their own world in the
process. So much is happening so fast, we get caught up and forget some
of the best stuff is what we’re rushing through,” says the man deemed
“The People’s Superstar” by The Los Angeles Times. “I’ve had
some of the very best songs, songs that really meant something to people
and we went interesting places musically. But that sets the bar higher
every time. I don’t want to repeat — and I want to grow as an artist.
It’s a lot harder than you’d think.”
Again co-producing with Buddy Cannon, Some Town Somewhere
was recorded in Los Angeles and Nashville, Tenn. Though no Grace
Potter, there will be some very special guests – including Moorer on the
song she co-wrote. Covering a vast stylistic plane, Chesney used many
of the core players from The Big Revival – and its four
consecutive No. 1 singles — to maintain the aggression and create an
energy that took the songs to more intense places.
“When
you’re in the studio, the chemistry the band has can have as much
impact on the way the songs turn out as anything,” Chesney explains.
“You could feel it on the last album, and I think everybody brought it
up a notch or two this time. Everyone kind of knew we’d let ‘em push the
songs, and man did they. Even the acoustic songs have so much
presence.”
Having
written, recorded and exploded “Noise” at country radio in a matter of
two weeks, the urgency behind Chesney’s current music is palpable. With
the winter committed to writing, listening and recharging, he spent the
time considering what he wanted his next record to be. On July 8, the No
Shoes Nation will get the next chapter in a long book that contains so
many of their lives when Some Town Somewhere finds its way into the ongoing conversation.
