"Here and Now"
Chesney wasn't planning to release a new record in the middle of a global pandemic, of course, but the vibe of the country star's latest record is needed in this here and now. Chesney's second album with Warner Music Nashville, the label he signed with in , arrives Friday May 1. Consider these five tracks your reminders to appreciate and enjoy life, and to live it to the fullest, no matter what the world throws at you. Every night on tour, they're living in the moment, and for the moment, exuding an energy that seeps into the rest of their lives. WE DO. It's not always easy, the singer confesses, to be present: "I struggle with that every day of my life, I truly do It's really tough for me to be present and to be in the moment and try to live my life in that space," he admits -- but the song is a reminder to keep focused on what's happening around you, because it's worth it. Hearing "Happy Does" for the first time, he says, made him crack a big grin. A stomping beat, an acoustic guitar and a few "la-da-da-dah" s help create the 'round-the-campfire sing-a-long feel of "Beautiful World," in which Chesney reflects on the wild and wonderful experience of life. There's nothing particularly deep or groundbreaking here, but it's sure gonna make you feel good.
