Kenny Chesney Brings the ‘Noise’ to the 2016 ACM Awards
Chesney strode the stage, addressing the audience from all angles, clad in a simple gray T-shirt, jeans and a black cowboy hat, putting to use the stage skills he has honed over the years as one of the perennial top concert draws in country music.
The song is the lead single from Chesney's upcoming studio album Some Town Somewhere, which is set for release in July. It's his first-ever stab at social relevance in a song, taking on the cable news cycle, cell phones and social media's white noise, with a lyric about the importance of being able to unplug the noise and tap into what's really important.
Like The Big Revival, Chesney's next album will take him in new directions.
“In some ways, this record is more me than anything I’ve done,” the superstar says. “You get into my head, my heart and the way so much of what’s going on around all of us hits me. Taken as a whole, this is a record about seizing life in all its forms: the moments you wish wouldn’t end, the times that make you rethink your priorities, the simple stuff that gives us balance, a few characters at the bar and the hope that it’s all worth doing.”
