Kenny Chesney Says “But We Did It”

Doing the Unconventional Pays Off

Kenny Chesney’s Cosmic Hallelujah was released more than a year ago. But that timing makes it just right for a Grammy.

His 16th studio album has been nominated for a Grammy for best country album, and Chesney sounds like he’s glad that doing things differently keeps paying off.

“We did unconventional things with Cosmic Hallelujah, always in the name of music,” Chesney said in the Tennessean. “To change the lead single nine days out because you think the message is important is crazy. But, we did it with ’Noise.'”

He also did something unconventional with another song on the album, one that — so far — has not been a radio release. “To make a big video for a song like ’Rich & Miserable’ and bring in a big actor like John C. McGinley (Scrubs, Battle of the Sexes), because the message mattered is unheard of, but we did it,” he said.
