Kenny Chesney is back in the studio.
“You have to take time to live and breathe, to fill up your tanks to be creative,” says Chesney in a prepared statement. “Otherwise, you’re just on a treadmill churning out what you’ve already done… Who needs that? For me, especially after the success of The Big Revival, I want to move the music, the songs, the discussion forward!”
Kenny has hit the studio in Los Angeles and Nashville with longtime co-producer Buddy Cannon.
“There’s a moment you feel a record grab hold, and take shape,” Chesney continues. “You can have great songs and not have an album. You can have a killer record that won’t move people on the radio. The idea is to balance both, then hopefully create something that does both, that also says something as a whole. I think we’re on our way.”
“When we came off the road and I listened back to The Big Revival, all I could think was, ‘Man, we covered a lot of ground, went pretty cool, as well as new places musically, I knew we couldn’t repeat, but I also wanted to find more new ways and new things to record!”
New music from Chesney is expected to arrive this spring.
