Get ready No Shoes Nation, because new Kenny Chesney music is on the way. On Tuesday (March 3), the country superstar announced that he'd finished recording his nineteenth studio album, Here And Now.

The forthcoming LP is preceded by the title track and lead single "Tip of My Tongue," the latter of which was co-written by Ed Sheeran.

"It’s going to have a high fun factor,” Chesney said in a statement regarding the album's sound. “People work hard, and need music that makes them smile, that kicks them into a happy place. There are also songs here that look at very specific people, that tell one person’s story, but it could be any of us. That’s the mark of a good song: let one person’s specific life say so much about a lot of people’s lives."

Here And Now is set for release May 1 via Warner Music Nashville. Check out Chesney's tweet about the announcement below.
