Kenny Chesney to be Honored for Songwriting

Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney will be recognized for his songwriting skills when he receives the BMI President’s Award at the 64th annual BMI Country Awards in Nashville November 1st. The honor is given to songwriters who have distinctly and profoundly influenced the entertainment industry. Past recipients include Willie Nelson, Brooks & Dunn, P!nk and Adam Levine.

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.

Kenny Chesney will return for the third time to headline 2017’s Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival. Chesney chose Tortuga as one of only a handful of concert dates the man – who just sold more than 121,000 tickets at Foxborough, Mass.’s Gillette Stadium and 56,000 at MetLife Stadium— will perform in 2017. Country music’s biggest beach party will celebrate its fifth year Friday, April 7th, Saturday, April 8th and Sunday, April 9th, 2017 on the sands of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Anticipation for the fifth annual Tortuga Music Festival is building as Early Bird Tickets sold-out in a record 45 minutes and Advance Tickets in just two days, all before announcing any of the performers joining for three days of sun, song, sand and surf in Fort Lauderdale. Regular tickets are available now at a rate of $229 for three-day General Admission and $999 for three-day VIP passes (shipping and handling fees may apply to each ticket type). Regular priced three-day Super VIP passes can be purchased for $1,499 per person. Payment plans and travel packages will be available Wednesday, Sept 14th, at 10am EDT. Visit or call 877-987-6487 to confirm tickets and make plans to hit the beach in 2017.

Additionally, Tortuga fans will have the opportunity this year to upgrade their tickets daily to get guaranteed front stage access to a new area in front of the Main Stage called “The Reef.”

“With our expansion last year to three days, our fans showed how excited they were to get an extra day of Tortuga time on the beach,” says HUKA Entertainment Chief Experience Officer A.J. Niland. “We’ve had a unanimously tremendous response from the artists, fans and community expressing what a unique and special event Tortuga has become. More than 90,000 fans attended last year. And we know our fifth year will be even better!”

Though the remainder of performers will remain under wraps for the time being, Niland promises that the 2017 line-up will be “our strongest one yet!” Fans can expect the same caliber of talent and outstanding headliners to hit the beach at Tortuga as in previous years, which have featured the likes of Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, Jake Owen, Hank Williams, Jr., The Doobie Brothers, Billy Currington, Kelsea Ballerini, Sheryl Crow, Brett Eldredge, Ziggy Marley, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Lynryd Skynyrd, Elle King, Frankie Ballard and many, many more.
