CHESNEY'S VIRTUAL TAILGATE
5/4/20

Blue Chair/Warner Music Nashville’s Kenny Chesney kicked off the release of Here and Now with a virtual tailgate party on 5/1. As the start of his Chillaxificiation 2020 tour has been postponed, Chesney celebrated the album drop with a livestream and Q&A from fans all around the world on his social media platforms plus SiriusXM’s The Highway and No Shoes Nation Radio.

Writers from six tracks on the album also joined the livestream, including David Lee Murphy, Brett James, Kat Higgins, James Slater, Bobby Hamrick, Jamie Paulin, Barry Dean, Dustin Christensen and Josh Kerr. Performing alongside Chesney, the livestream featured tracks like “Knowing You,” “Happy Does,” “Beautiful World,” “You Don’t Get To,” “Wasted,” “Guys Named Captain” and “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright.”

Chesney shared, “This album is so much about the writers and the fun of being together, the people in the songs and the heart of what No Shoes Nation is. “We took the music a lot of places, looked at a lot of moments and found some characters you can’t turn away from. So, I wanted the songwriters to be part of releasing this music to the world!”
