Kenny Chesney encourages fans to live in the moment in his just-released new single, “Here and Now.”

Serving as the lead release from his forthcoming new album, the uptempo song fits perfectly in the superstar’s wheelhouse and delivers a timely message about embracing the present.

“Lotta people dreaming ‘bout one day, some day/ Waiting just around the bend/ I used to be one Wondering when they’d come/ but now I’m living in,” Chesney sings in the bridge.

Admitting that the song “blew my mind” when he first heard it, the East Tennessee native cut the track with his live show and his fans in mind.

“There is so much in the world we can’t change, and you can get so caught up in that, you miss your life,” Chesney shares. “I can’t save the world, but I can make music that makes people happy, play shows that let them forget their problems for an evening – and occasionally cut a song that maybe reminds all of us what we ought to be embracing.”

With its live-in-the-moment message, “Here and Now” will undoubtedly be a staple in Chesney’s set list during his upcoming Chillaxification 2020 Tour, kicking off April 18 in Arlington, Texas.

The release of “Here and Now” comes just days after Chesney was honored with the Country Radio Broadcasters’ highest honor – The Humanitarian of the Year Award. The eight-time Entertainer of the Year was on hand at Country Radio Seminar in Nashville to accept the trophy, which is awarded to artists who “have exhibited exceptional humanitarian efforts during their career,” on Wednesday (Feb. 19) where he humbly thanked God for blessing him with a platform that allows him to give back.

“Here and Now” is available to stream and download now.
