Kenny Chesney has released his latest single, "Til It's Gone," to country radio. Fans in attendance at Chesney's recent show in Athens, GA at the Georgia Theater were treated to a rare stripped down version of the tune, which was not only a special for his fans, but for Chesney, as well.
“If you think about what the song says,” Chesney explains, “it’s very much a one-on-one piece of communicating. It’s about hanging on to the one who matters to you; for me, it’s talking straight to those hardcore fans who’ve been there – and saying ‘no matter where or what, I’m in this as long as you hang on.’ And it’s that straight talking to the people that made me want to debut ‘Til It’s Gone’ somewhere that speaks straight to the fans, too – which I think Rolling Stone is doing with a real sense of passion.”
The video, released this week, captures that essence. “We could’ve gone a lot of ways with this clip,” Chesney says. “But when we started looking at the footage from the Georgia Theater, it had that same sense of people... just being... You know, it was so easy, so laidback and so intense. The best nights between two people are like that, so it seemed like this no frills, just music and the band – if I’m talking to the No Shoes Nation – was the honest way to share the feeling.”
"Til It's Gone" is the follow-up single to Chesney's "American Kids," both from his The Big Revival album.
