Kenny Chesney ‘Laughed’ When He Heard His New Song
Kenny Chesney released a brand new song called “Take Her Home” today (11/10), and he says that it’s a song that all of us can relate to.
Kenny said of the new song, “When I heard ‘Take Her Home,’ I just laughed. It was everything life is made of in less than four minutes. It’s true, honest, and all the stuff that’s easy to forget. All those details and little moments? The deep-cut Cheap Trick, the black-and-pink suitcase in the back of the truck, a 7-pound, 5-ounce baby? That’s what makes these kinds of life changes what they are. And it’s funny: no matter what stage you’re in, you really are always scared. That’s how you know it’s gonna be worth it.”
He added, “It’s amazing how simple figuring life out can be. I look around, and I see people in every state of this song every day. It’s part of the miracle of being alive. Even when it’s not happening to you, it’s happening to someone you love – whether your friend, a brother or sister, co-worker – and that feeling comes right back. I can’t wait to hear people singing this one back to us because it’s going to be one of those moments. I just know.”
Chesney knew this song was just right for him and his music. He offered, “Every now and then, you find a song that just feels right. There’s an honesty about life that you can’t just churn out. Finding songs that ring true? When you hear one, you grab it – and that’s a lot of how this song happened. We were trying to decide what to lead with, and someone sent me this demo… and I knew. No more discussion. We had the song – and a great time turning it into a record. Real life? There’s nothing like it.”
