Check Out Kenny Chesney’s Cosmic Halleujah Track List & Cover


With his compulsion to get the music “just right” – and his desire to inspire the wildly-impassioned No Shoes Nation – Kenny Chesney’s Cosmic Hallelujah has taken some unpredictable turns. But in the end, the follow-up to his four-No. 1-producing The Big Revival has been finalized and is heading for mastering.

“I’ve been blessed with some of the best songs out there, some songs written, actually, just for this album by writers whose work I’ve loved for years,” Chesney explains. “When ‘Setting The World On Fire’ came together, it opened a window of time – and some songs that had come in after we were done, I didn’t have to save for the next album. Suddenly, everything was changing, and the album I’m releasing now has a lot of what made Some Town Somewhere capture the essential part of who the No Shoes Nation is, but really takes the your-life-is-now piece of The Big Revival and expands it.

“And there’s one very special song I’ve been holding for years called ‘Coach’ that we went in and re-cut,” said Chesney. “It really captured that song’s heart.”

Beyond the hot white center-of-the-moment duet with P!NK, “Setting The World On Fire,” and the creative blast of “Noise,” Cosmic Hallelujah includes “Some Town Somewhere,” the album title source’s percolating philosophy, “Trip Around the Sun,” the Tom Petty-esque coming-of-age, “All The Pretty Girls,” the breezy romance of “Bar at The End of the World,” the DIY get-out-of-towner, “Winnebago,” the homage to small town dives, “Jesus and Elvis” and the worry-jettisoning “Bucket,” as well as the priority questioning, “Rich and Miserable,” that’s Chesney’s most musically ambitious track yet.

Matraca Berg, Hayes Carll, Hillary Lindsey, Shane McAnally, Allison Moorer, David Lee Murphy, Jon Nite, Josh Osborne and Craig Wiseman are among Cosmic Hallelujah’s songwriters. The Oscar-nominated Moorer also sings on “Jesus & Elvis.”

With a cover shot by famed rock photographer Danny Clinch taken on the Jersey Shore, Cosmic Hallelujah magnifies the euphoria and rush that defines Chesney as an artist, a writer and a live performer. Beyond the strong emphasis on rhythm and grooves, the four-consecutive Academy of Country Music and four-time Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year worked to craft an album that marks the best part of being alive and the way to embrace the moment and appreciate the smallest things that often get lost in life as it hurtles by.

As “Setting The World On Fire” grazes the Country Top 5 and flirts with the pop charts, look for Cosmic Hallelujah Oct. 28.
