Though the album announcement was slim on details for the rest of the album’s tracklisting, Chesney shared a bit more the banjo-propelled title track. “It’s got a lot of heart, a lot of soul – and it speaks the truth about living, life and what we’re all doing here,” he said in a statement. “It’s a lyric that throws out all the options, never tells you what to do and throws out the one existential truth no matter what you choose: ‘One thing’s for certain, we’ve all been living since the day we were born.’” Chesney said in a statement.

“Normally, we wait until it’s all figured out, the T’s are crossed, the I’s are dotted,” Chesney added. “But everything about this record’s been different – from how much time we’ve spent, the different ways we recorded and wrote and found songs – so why not let the fans know as we’re finishing up? We make this music for them, so, here you go.”

He does note the top-shelf caliber of musicians who join him on the project. In addition to his on-tour bandmates — drummer Nick Buda, guitarist Kenny Greenberg and guitar/banjo/bouzouki player Danny Rader — Chesney and longtime co-producer Buddy Cannon have enlisted Pat Buchanan (electric guitar), Chad Cromwell (drums), Dan Dugmore (steel guitar), Michael Rojas (B3, Wurlizter, piano) and Dan Tyminski (acoustic guitar) among the contributing musicians to the project.

Chesney noted that taking three years between the release of his new album and his previous album, 2020’s Here and Now, (which yielded radio hits including the chart-topping title track as well as top 5 Country Airplay singles “Happy Does” and “Knowing You”) allowed the singer-songwriter the space to “find songs that continue the story of who we are … how we live, breathe, work, rock, kick back and sometimes get tangled up in feelings that are anything but simple,” he said.

The album’s lead single “Take Her Home” currently sits at No. 27 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart — throughout his career, the Tennessee native has sent 32 radio singles to the pinnacle of the listing.

Born’s release comes just a month before Chesney revs up his 2024 Sun Goes Down Tour, which will launch April 23 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts and feature 23 stadium shows.
