Kenny Chesney announced Wednesday (January 17th), that he will be releasing his new studio album, Born, on March 29th.
The counry star said in a statement, “I'm just trying to find songs that continue the story of who we are…how we live, breathe, work, rock, kick back and sometimes get tangled up in feelings that are anything but simple. Then you see people react the way they have to the news, and you go, 'Well, okay…'
He continued, “As for the title, well, we're still not quite done deciding what's going on here, but one thing's for sure: Born is absolutely the title track. It's got a lot of heart, a lot of soul – and it speaks the truth about living, life and what we're all doing here. Banjo out front, a great big pocket that rocks back and forth, it feels great. But more importantly, it's a lyric that throws out all the options, never tells you what to do and throws out the one existential truth no matter what you choose: 'one thing's for certain, we've all been living since the day we were born.'”
The lead single, “Take Her Home” peaked at No. 16 on the Country Airplay Chart in November 2023.
