The breezy track was co-written by Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne and appears on Chesney’s latest album, Here And Now.
The song follows the story of a woman living life on her own terms and completely unbothered by what everyone else is doing or what society standards dictate.
“She’s bored with all the boys/ And the men are too damn old/ She’s sick of summer love/ But the winter’s just too cold/ She’s a Marilyn in blue jeans/ With a touch of Jackie O/ She’s stuck between 17/ And everyone she knows,” the superstar effortlessly sings on the chorus.
“I love this woman,” Chesney says. “She’s found a life that works for her, and it’s maybe not what her friends are doing, but it works for her. There’s this idea that you get married, settle down and your life is made; but the woman in ‘Everyone She Knows’ is still out there, living life on her own terms, chasing her dreams and trying to balance that with what people seem to expect.”
Many listeners will be able to find a piece of themselves in the free-spirited character in the song, and if they don’t recognize themselves, they’ll surely know someone who fits the part.

“I think there’s nothing as awesome as a woman living life the way she wants to,” Chesney acknowledges. “To see someone so in love with life, so in love with the adventure, out there doing it? That’s an incredible thing. I know so many women who are their own compass… and this song is for them. Wherever you are, however you are, just love the adventure and don’t worry what people think.
“The bridge goes, ‘She goes out on Saturday night / She comes home late, she don’t have to fight / And she thinks, ‘Ain’t got it all, but I got it alright…’.’ That pretty much says it all. In a world that isn’t perfect, no one should judge anyone, but especially a woman, for making the most out of life.”
“Everyone She Knows” officially goes for adds at country radio on February 14.
Chesney is set to kick off his much-anticipated Here And Now 2022 Tour on April 23 in Tampa, Florida. Joining the eight-time Entertainer of the Year on the road are Dan + Shay, Old Dominion, and Carly Pearce on select dates.
