Kenny Chesney released his next radio single today! It's called “Take Her Home,” a loping rumination on the butterflies that flutter when you see “the one” through all the phases of falling in love, getting serious and building a life that makes you so much more. It is the essence of everything that is so easy to miss, but creates the biggest blessings and greatest happiness people can experience.
“When I heard ‘Take Her Home,’ I just laughed,” Chesney says of the song in a press release. “It was everything life is made of in less than four minutes. It’s true, honest and all the stuff that’s easy to forget. All those details and little moments? The deep cut Cheap Trick, the black-and-pink suitcase in the back of the truck, a 7 pound, 5 ounce baby? That’s what makes these kinds of life changes what they are. And it’s funny: no matter what stage you’re in, you really are always scared. That’s how you know it’s gonna be worth it.”
Lainey Wilson had an incredible night at the CMAs picking up five wins out of her nine nominations including Female Vocalist, New Album of the Year, and the coveted Entertainer of the Year award!
