Kenny Chesney has more new music on the way! The country superstar will release a new song called "Knowing You" on Friday (April 10) off his upcoming album, Here and Now.
The song reflects on those who left a lasting impact on our lives. Instead of mourning the loss, "Knowing You" finds Chesney celebrating the joy and good times that person brought him when they were still together.
"When I heard it, ‘Knowing You’ knocked me out," Chesney said. "It was such a classic kind of country song you don’t hear any more, and it was so pure. And then, the idea you’re wishing the best for the other person, kind of smiling, knowing just what they’re doing and thinking, ‘Yeah, go enjoy the moment…’ is something the best people in our lives make us feel."
He continues, "And this song doesn’t have to be a lover who’s gone, or even a friend whose dream took them in another direction. It can be someone who’s passed away, just staring into the sunset, knowing they’re living that best part of life in heaven, maybe even looking down on you and smiling."
The country star also announced his upcoming release with an Instagram post on Tuesday (April 7). "For me, this song brought back so much of the innocent hopefulness of country music, and it reminded me of so many people. It was one of those songs I knew we had to do," he said in the caption.
"Knowing You" will follow up Chesney's latest single, "Here And Now," which is also the title track to his forthcoming album due out May 1.
