“Can’t we all just get along?” has been a questioned asked over and over again in society through decades. In today’s climate, that question comes up more often than not. Kenny Chesney is asking that same question in his latest release, “Get Along.”
Down the road we got a long, long way to go.
Scared to live, scared to die, we ain’t perfect but we try.
Get along while we can, always give love the upper hand
Paint a wall, learn to dance, call your mom, buy a boat, drink a beer, sing a song, make a friend, can’t we all get along,” Kenny sings in the chorus.
Written by Josh Osborne, Shane McAnally and Ross Copperman, the new tune simply has Kenny preaching about finding the happier side of life, just choosing to do the good thing and of course…get along. It can’t be that hard, right?
“Some days, it’s like the world is just angry, screaming people,” Kenny said in a statement. “All harping on what’s wrong, how other people are awful. The more I move around, talking to people, though, the more I know people are seeking the same things, working hard to get by and hoping for the best for their family and friends. It’s simple, but we keep getting driven apart – and made unhappy. When I heard this song, beyond how good the rhythm felt, I was amazed how simply they broke all this stuff down. Get along… find the common ground… know the basic stuff is where the joy, the love, the happiness is.”
“Get Along” is the first single off Kenny’s upcoming album and one of his best to date. The Tennessee native has a knack for tapping into the current mood of the country, while offering a solution.
The mid-tempo melody will not only make you rethink about your attitude, it will have you tapping your foot along to the unforgettable beat. How could we not get along after that?
“To me, music is what you make it, and I want music that sounds good, but also gives you permission to really live,” Kenny added. “I think we can get so caught up in expectations, our own and other people’s, and we forget what matters.”
