Kenny Chesney Previews “Life on a Rock”

It's no secret that Kenny Chesney is an extremely busy superstar. But sometimes the breakneck pace of his career can be exhausting, which is when he retreats to the islands to recharge with his friends.

Kenny is giving a revealing look at the friendships that have inspired him and how he unwinds from the exhuastion on his new album, Life on a Rock, which is due out April 30. Industry friends got a sneak preview last night (April 2) in Nashville, complete with an intimate discussion led by Kenny himself about the recording of the album.

The tracks previewed included "Spread the Love," a straight-ahead reggae tune with Kenny backed by the legendary Wailers Band, and the breezy "Coconut Tree," featuring Willie Nelson. He also saluted friends from the islands with songs like "Lindy" and "Happy on the Hey Now," dedicated to a departed friend who taught him to live in the moment.

A few select Kenny fans will also get a chance to hear some of the new songs when he plays a special intimate concert for SiriusXM listeners at New York City's Highline Ballroom. The invitation-only event takes place May 1 and will feature Kenny performing his hits and songs from Life on a Rock. The show will also be broadcast on SiriusXM's The Highway, channel 59, on Saturday, May 4, at 8 p.m. ET.

SiriusXM subscribers have a chance to win tickets to the event but must meet certain eligibility requirements to play. Find out more information here.
