The Power of Positive Singing Earns Kenny Chesney Career First: 2 Simultaneous Top 10 Singles

The Power of Positive Singing Earns Kenny Chesney Career First: 2 Simultaneous Top 10 Singles

The power of positive thinking singing has helped Kenny Chesney reach a new career milestone: two simultaneous Top 10 singles.

Kenny’s new single, “Get Along,” reached No. 10 this week on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after only six weeks, while his duet with David Lee Murphy on “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” checked in at No. 7.

“I never take anything for granted when it comes radio,” says Kenny. “They are the bridge between this music and the people who live inside these songs. For all the awards and number ones, I’ve never had two songs in the Top 10 at the same time, and it’s a pretty special rush. Having grown up listening to the radio, there’s something about a song coming out of the speakers that’s exciting.”

David Lee, who’s probably best known for his 1995 No. 1 hit, “Dust on the Bottle,” hadn’t scored a hit—as a singer—since 2004’s “Loco,” which reached No. 5. But over the last dozen or so years, the Illinois native has stayed busy as a songwriter, penning hits such as “Big Green Tractor” (Jason Aldean), “Anywhere With You” (Jake Owen), “The More I Drink” (Blake Shelton), “’Til It’s Gone” (Kenny Chesney) and more.

“You watch the news, it’s rough,” says David Lee. “You can get caught up in that, or step back and trust life. Sometimes, a deep breath changes everything.”

Kenny will release his 17th studio album, Songs for the Saints, on July 27. He kicked off his Trip Around the Sun Tour on April 21. It caps in August after making stops in Atlanta, Denver, Chicago, Seattle, Nashville and more.
