Kenny Chesney has revealed the track listing for his new album, The Big Revival, set for release on September 23. The project includes 11 tracks, including Chesney’s latest single, “American Kids,” a collaboration with Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski called “Don’t It,” and “Wild Child,” which features Grace Potter.
“There’s so much more to country than trucks, creek beds and cut-offs,” Chesney said. “That stuff is fun, but when you look at how people really dig in and work, the things they face every day, you wanna remind ’em how hardcore they really are, show ’em that and also show ’em that you know there’s more to ’em than people might think.”
Another track on the album, “Flora-Bama,” was co-written by Chesney and David Lee Murphy and inspired by the Flora-Bama Bar. “It’s a very specific song about a very specific place, but it’s also a song for anyone who has somewhere they go to let their mind unwind,” Chesney said. “It’s about being easy, but being engaged. Because — as I’ve said — places like the Flora-Bama are what life is all about.”
The Big Revival is available for pre-order now. Fans who pre-order will instantly receive downloads of both “American Kids” and “Flora-Bama.” Although Chesney took 2014 off from touring to focus on his new project, he plans to resume touring in 2015.
