Kenny Chesney Previews “Noise” Live on Facebook

Blue Chair Records/Columbia NashvilleKenny Chesney prepared fans for the arrival of his new single “Noise” on Thursday afternoon, taking Facebook viewers backstage where he’s getting ready for this summer’s Spread the Love stadium tour. More than 11,000 people watched the 10-minute video chat, as Kenny talked about his eagerness to get back on the road this year, with a renewed focus on the simplicity of the music.

Remarking that “new music brings new energy,” he previewed the lead single from his as-yet-untitled new album that’s due sometime this summer, revealing he was originally going to release another song. In fact, Kenny was on the way to the marketing meeting to talk about that single when he wrote “Noise.”

Calling the new collection the “most authentic songs” he’s ever been a part of, he went on to recall how he’d turn the sound up when he was mixing his first record. He says now he’s more likely to turn the speakers down, so he can really listen to the music.

Describing “Noise” as “socially relevant,” Kenny talked about how most of us are overstimulated and bombarded by information, remarking on the current U.S. Presidential race in particular. Moments after the video chat ended, “Noise” arrived in the inboxes of radio stations everywhere.

Florida Georgia Line Records Next Album in a Treehouse

ABC/Image Group LAFlorida Georgia Line couldn’t quite keep their feet on the ground when they recorded their third album.  “Can't wait for you and the world to hear the magic we captured on this new record here in this viby treehouse,” the pair tweeted, along with a photo of the multi-level structure built by Pete Nelson from Animal Planet’s Treehouse Masters.

As you might imagine, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley aren’t exactly roughing it in the woods. The treehouse has a round bed, chandeliers, and a musket mounted on the wall, along with a recording studio, according to Billboard.  

It’s safe to say the duo is in the home stretch when it comes to finishing their upcoming release, having shared pictures in the past week as they shot both a new music video and the project’s cover. In February, the pair told Billboard they were 80-percent done, with hopes of releasing the lead single by late April or early May.

That timing would also coincide with the beginning of their Dig Your Roots tour with Cole Swindell, The Cadillac Three and Kane Brown. The title comes from one of the new tracks on the forthcoming record.


Can't wait for you and the world to hear the magic we captured on this new record here in this viby treehouse 🙏🎉⚡️🔑
