Kenny Chesney In The Studio For 'The Big Revival' Follow-Up

(EBM) Country music star Kenny Chesney has teamed up with longtime co-producer Buddy Cannon (Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard) in the studio in Los Angeles and Nashville to work on the follow up to his hit album "The Big Revival". We were sent the following details:

"There's a moment you feel a record grab hold, and take shape," Chesney says. "You can have great songs and not have an album. You can have a killer record that won't move people on the radio. The idea is to balance both, then hopefully create something that does both, that also says something as a whole. I think we're on our way."

Drawing on David Lee Murphy ("Living In Fast Forward," "Pirate Flag"), Josh Osborne ("Wild Child," "Come Over," the GRAMMY-winning "Merry Go 'Round") and Shane McAnally ("Somewhere With You," "American Kids," "Come Over") Chesney has also mined Matraca Berg ("You & Tequila"), the Oscar-nominee Allison Moorer and Americana Artist of the Year nominee Hayes Carll, as well as a few surprises.

"There are a few writers who get me, who get my life and my soul," Chesney says. "And I was lucky enough to have time to write with them. But I also got to hear a lot of great songs, some different writers, so there was a lot of music this time to draw from and be inspired by."

"When we came off the road and I listened back to The Big Revival, all I could think was, 'Man, we covered a lot of ground, went pretty cool, as well as new places musically,'" continues the man who's notched 28 No. 1s. "I knew we couldn't repeat, but I also wanted to find more new ways and new things to record!"
