There is nothing is better than a Friday and new Kenny Chesney. His first song of 2020 is here, and we can’t get enough. Fresh off of being awarded the Country Radio Broadcasters’ Humanitarian of the Year Award at the 2020 Country Radio Seminar, the East Tennessee native continues to show his commitment to country music and the fans with “Here and Now”.
Written by Craig Wiseman, David Garcia, and David Lee Murphy during a writing retreat in Malibu, this upbeat song is about living in the moment and appreciating what you have. We’re all guilty of counting down to something, whether that be hitting our next big life milestone or simply the weekend. “Here and Now” reminds you to take a step back, enjoy the present, and don’t take for granted what you have.
In a recent press release, the singer-songwriter shared what this song means to him, “I know there will be 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\ Nowhere else in this world enough\ You and me ain’t it good to be alive? \ Ain’t no better place and ain’t no better time\ Than here and now\ Everyone’s waiting but they’re waiting on what? \ Better get to living, ‘cause all we’ve got is here and now.”
On April 18th Chesney is hitting the road starting on the Chillaxification Tour and we can already picture this single being performed in front of his loyal fans during his live show.
He is bringing along Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion, and Michael Franti & Spearhead. You don’t want to miss one of the hottest shows of the summer. They will be playing at MetLife Stadium on August 22nd. Get your tickets here.
