Congratulations to Kenny Chesney at the team at Blue Chair Records & Sony Music Nashville! His latest single “Come Over” from his “Welcome To The Fishbowl” album is officially gold after selling more than 500,000 copies digitally since its release. The single was certified gold by the RIAA and is the fastest-rising single of Kenny’s career, rising to number two on the Mediabase chart in only nine weeks. The album’s first single, a duet with Tim McGraw for “Feel Like A Rockstar,” was a top ten hit.
The single was co-written by Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Sam Hunt. It’s a song that’s pretty personal to Kenny, who says:
‘”Come Over’ is one of the most emotionally universal songs I’ve ever recorded. When you break up with someone, you don’t break up all at once. You break up over time. And that’s the thread of the song. Letting go is hard.”
Kenny is out with Tim on their “Brothers Of The Sun Tour.” At their recent stop in Denver, Colorado, Kenny addressed the sold-out crowd with a personal message about the Aurora tragedy:
“Me and my road family are just like the rest of the nation, hurting with this city tonight. We love you, and we’re with you, and if you guys will let us, we want to let music start to heal this town just a little bit tonight.”
Kenny and Tim’s next stop is at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis and Browns Stadium in Cleveland.
