Country music superstar Kenny Chesney is flying high with the success of his latest studio album “Here and Now.”
The album was released in May of last year by Blue Chair Records and Warner Records Nashville. The album has already put out a couple of hits for Chesney, including “Happy Does” and “Tip of My Tongue.” Now, Chesney is gearing up for the album’s newest release.
The singer took to social media on Monday to announce “Knowing You” will be his newest single from the hit album. In the social media post, Chesney describes his feelings toward the song and says he hopes his fans feel the same.
“Knowing you sounds like coming home in a lot of ways,” Chesney says in the post. “This is the essence of all the music that country is. When you hear it, something inside tingles, because it is more than production tricks, the guitars or how hard the drums hit. It’s just so pure.”
