Kenny Chesney New Album Set for June 19

Jon Kapoloff, FilmMagic

New music from Kenny Chesney is on the way! While his next album is still untitled, it will be released on June 19. The project will follow his platinum record, ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey,’ which produced four No. 1 singles, as well as his current tune, ‘Reality,’ which is currently at No. 2 on Billboard’s country songs chart and could very well be the project’s fifth chart-topper.

It’s a busy summer for the East Tennessee native, who also kicks off his Brothers of the Sun tour with Tim McGraw on June 2. “I wish it was happening right now … I’m so ready for it,” Kenny told radio station KIKN in Sioux Falls, S.D. “It’s really hard for me to believe, because Tim and I have been friends a long time. We’ve made a lot of music together and made a lot of memories together. He’s one of my best friends in the business and outside the business.”

Fans can see the singer-songwriter next at the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 1. He’s nominated for nine awards, including Entertainer, Album for ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey’ and Male Vocalist. In addition, he’s recognized as both artist and producer for his duet with Grace Potter, ‘You and Tequila,’ which has both Single and Vocal Event of the Year nods. The song was also recently nominated for Country Song and Country Duo/Group Performance at the Grammys. However, Kenny isn’t discouraged by its loss.

“I couldn’t be more proud to be nominated for the song I’m nominated for, I can tell you that,” he told The Boot. “It’s just very simple but very beautifully written, very brilliantly written. It just goes to show you that a great song has a life of its own. Deana recorded it and Matraca recorded it, and now Grace Potter and I have a record with it, and it’s one of my favorite songs that I’ve ever recorded.”

Grace and her band, the Nocturnals, will join Kenny and Tim on the road, along with Jake Owen. Their first Brothers of the Sun show is in Tampa, Fla. Get a full list of dates here.

In other Kenny news, the superstar appeared on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,’ to perform his rendition of Bruce Springsteen‘s ‘I’m On Fire.’ The 43-year-old made his first appearance on the program as part of a week-long tribute to The Boss.
