Kenny Chesney will perform his latest single, “Pirate Flag,” on Good Morning America on April 30, the same day his new album, Life On A Rock, is released. He’s looking forward to sharing his new music, some of his most personal to date, with fans.
GAC is the official media sponsor of Kenny’s No Shoes Nation Tour. Check out photos, videos and more from the tour in our No Shoes Nation Tour section!
“Life On A Rock came from such unlikely places,” Kenny said. “Literally some of these songs were carried around in my backpack or my notebooks, just written to remember a moment. I never thought anybody except my friends would ever hear them. So now, to be here, it’s both exciting and a little a scary.”
Kenny isn’t worried about playing on live TV. He’s been visited top morning shows for more than 10 years. The idea of opening up his personal life to the world, however, makes him a little nervous. He’ll also perform on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on April 30 where he will be joined by The Roots for “Spread the Love,” a song he helped the Wailers finish writing.
“I think people are so open to all kinds of music,” Kenny said. “People who watch Jimmy Fallon don’t just like one kind of music… and somebody like me loves Bob Marley as much as Willie Nelson. I think that’s one of the things about getting these songs out there, it’s about getting beyond genre and making music: something Jimmy Fallon and the Roots do, too.
“That’s the greatest part of music: it brings people together,” he continued. “Whether it was leading me to friends, creating what has evolved into the No Shoes Nation or brought people as diverse as Family Man (Aston Barrett), Grace Potter and Steve Miller into my life. It’s time to make things a little more personal, and I can’t wait to kick off the new music on Good Morning America next week.”
