Kenny Chesney scored his 30th No. 1 single on the Billboard Country Airplay chart as “Get Along” ascended to the top spot this week.
Kenny’s 30th chart-topper breaks a tie for the all-time record he shared with Tim McGraw, who has 29 No. 1 singles on the chart, followed by George Strait (26) and Alan Jackson (26).
“I can’t think of a better song to set a record,” Kenny says. “Everything it says is everything I think makes the world a better place. To have something that has a groove that feels so good wrapped around a song that reminds us it’s the things that bring us together that will make us happy. When you get right down to it, ‘Get Along’ is a great way to have some pretty important life advice delivered.”
On July 27, Kenny will drop his 17th studio album, Songs for the Saints, which features lead single, “Get Along.” Kenny wrote or co-wrote five songs on the album, which he co-produced with Buddy Cannon. The catalyst for the new 12-song offering was Hurricane Irma, which devastated a number of Caribbean islands in September 2017, including Kenny’s home on St. John.
Currently, Kenny is on the road for his headlining Trip Around the Sun Tour.
