Kenny Chesney Drops “Save It For A Rainy Day”

Most Added Single 1st Week Follows Big Revival’s Three Consecutive No. 1sKENNY_announce post

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 6, 2015) — Having gone three-for-three with No. 1 singles from The Big Revival, Kenny Chesney knew he wanted his next single to do some very specific things. After the multi-week, GRAMMY-nominated “American Kids” – with its double hook and three different rhythms, the rocking invitation to live completely “Til It’s Gone” and his female positive ballad “Wild Child” – featuring Grace Potter, the focus was life-affirming reality embodied with summer’s freewheeling feeling.

“It’s a hard choice,” says the songwriter and 8-time Entertainer of the Year, “because there’s a lot of songs on this record I think would sound great on the radio, that speak to the No Shoes Nation…. But ‘Save It For A Rainy Day’ we can all use. The idea is, why lose another beautiful day over something out of our control? Whatever it is, a girlfriend leaving, a crummy boss, something else, the reality is pretty simple: they don’t care that they’re ruining your day. And they’re not, you are! It’s your choice how you’re going to feel… a lot more than any of us realize.”

“Save It For A Rainy Day,” written by Andrew Dorff, Matt Ramsey and Brad Tursi, is a mid-tempo picking up where trouble recedes. Its chiming acoustic guitar and a loping beat is vintage Chesney, whose warm-voiced, intimate, yet resolved. After confessing, “I was stuck in a habit of wondering what happened/ Too busy taking all the blame” and a B-3 swirls up from the mix, he assesses the larger reality: “The sun’s too bright, the sky’s too blue/ beer’s too cold to be thinking about you/ Gonna take this heartbreak and tuck it away/ Save it for a rainy day…”ken-793x526

“We all go through stuff,” Chesney laughs. “And you know, you can get so caught up in what I did wrong, or trying to take the blame, and you start missing out on everything else… We all make mistakes, we all screw up, but we’re also – I think most of us – good people trying to do right, and have some fun while we’re here! Friends, family, the moments, that’s the stuff that’s so easy to miss, and this song makes it so easy to figure out.”

Chesney sold over a million tickets before ever playing the first note on his current The Big Revival 2015 Tour – and with 22 stadiums over the summer, it may well be the only Country Artist on Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years biggest tour ever. Breaking his own attendance records in Pittsburgh and Green Bay, as well as gearing up for two night at Minneapolis’ Target Field July 18-19 and Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium August 28-29, the crowd connection has gone to a whole new level, prompting The Dallas Morning News to tag him, “Two parts Mick Jagger, one part Bruce Springsteen, one part Billy Graham.”

Thirteen years into headlining, the man The Wall Street Journal deemed “The King of the Road” got there by paying attention to the fans. Beyond the No Shoes Nation, the largest group of supporters who spend their summers crisscrossing America and following the tour, there are those people who find their lives in the songs that have become Chesney’s 27 No. 1s – and a whole lot that of others that got close.

With shows at Cleveland’s Q on July 9 and a massive play at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field — being documented for a special report on an upcoming Good Morning America – July 11, Chesney isn’t saving anything for a rainy day! He will be the first country act to headline Pasadena’s Rose Bowl July 25, as well as Denver’s Sports Authority Field at Mile High August 8, East Rutherford, NJ’s Met Life Stadium August 15 and Detroit’s Ford Field August 22.

OLD DOMINION SET TO PREMIERE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “BREAK UP WITH HIM” EXCLUSIVELY ON CMT WEDNESDAY, JULY 8

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Monday, July 6) –RCA Records Nashville’s own Old Dominion will premiere their first-ever major label music video for their song “Break Up With Him” via CMT this Wednesday, July 8. In addition to its TV debut, the video can be viewed on demand across all CMT digital platforms including OldDominion.CMT.com, CMT Pure and the CMT Artists app.old dominion

The thematic music video was shot in Nashville, TN during the annual CMA Music Festival in June and was directed by the aptly titled, Director Steve.  The what-everyone-will-be-talking-about video showcases the humor and cleverness that the five band members of Old Dominion possess. The band members gave their fans a preview of what’s to come in a trailer for the upcoming video. View it by clicking HERE.

“We came up with the idea for the Back to the Future video when we had a long ride from West Virginia all the way to San Francisco,” Matthew Ramsey tells Country Weekly. “It was a long radio tour trip, and on our stops we knew we had a video coming up and we wanted to talk about it, so we were sitting by the pool coming up with all these crazy ideas, and somebody said something like, ‘I don’t know if people are gonna get that,’ and one guy goes, ‘Your kids are gonna love it.’ Which is a catchphrase from the movie, and that just sparked us down this road.”

Old Dominion is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on their debut album set to release via RCA Records Nashville late 2015. The untitled album comes on the heels of the gut-punch self-titled EP, which Rolling Stone Country says is dashed with “fuzzy guitars, catchy licks and even a little rap” and features the back porch smack of the undeniable first radio single “Break Up With Him” and the bruising “Shut Me Up,” and is the product of the five-piece band, which includes singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers. They’ve spent eight years honing their craft, each making a name for themselves in Nashville by penning songs for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, The Band Perry, Dierks Bentley and Tyler Farr. Now the band that The Tennessean describes as “a humble group of songwriters and musicians who earned their way in the music industry” is out on the road on Kenny Chesney’s The Big Revival Tour for 18 stadium performances plus over 130 tour dates of their own in 2015.

Baker continued, “Music, dining, shopping all day, then when the Main Stage goes dark, the festival transforms into an after-hours nightclub with more live entertainment for those with big stamina.”OLD DOMINION_announce post

Runaway Country takes place the 3rd weekend of March at Osceola Heritage Park. Located on US Hwy. 192 approx. 30 minutes east of Disney World and 12 miles south of Orlando International Airport.

Runaway Country is still 10 months away, but tickets go on sale this Wednesday.

“A lot of people plan their annual get-together early and want their tickets as soon as possible”, explains Runaway Country Executive Producer, Gary McCann. “Music Festivals are a unique experience; different than any other concert. One ticket provides access to three days of live music and performances by some of today’s hottest bands, also admission to dance and party clubs, dining, shopping, so much to see and do.”

Available again this year is the popular EZ Pay option where you can automatically split your ticket purchase into 5 monthly payments with no interest and no fees.

Several ticket options are available:
– Single Day General Admission, $79
– Three Day Weekend General Admission $119 (General Admission; BYO lawn chair)

McCann added, “Every year, the organizing committee comes up with an outstanding line-up, new attractions and experiences. The beauty of a festival ticket, it averages about $7 per artist. Just three years ago folks would look at us sideways; you know that kind of funny look. Lady Antebellum, Alan Jackson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Miranda Lambert, Jake Owen, Randy Travis, Dierks Bentley and Eric Church live in Wickham Park for seven dollars each? … Now the expression is more like, ‘This is very cool!’”

“We work hard to offer the best entertainment value anywhere in the country,” explained Runaway Country VP of Marketing, Doug Baker. “A great deal of credit goes to the business community who step up in large numbers each year to sponsor the festival. Based on renewals each year, the Festival is as good for them as it is for the fans.”

“Nowhere better to be than Florida in March, for fans and performers, alike,” added Rob Varley, Executive Director, Space Coast Office of Tourism. “Hosting visitors from all over the country, and in fact, from around the world, has been great for our area. Each year more music fans tell us they are staying a little longer and taking in everything the Space Coast has to offer.”

The line-up for 2014 will be announced in the coming weeks. Based on the previous three years, the festival’s slogan, ‘Florida in March, never sounding so good’ will hold true.

McCann concluded, “We are in for a real treat. Yes, Florida in March is the best place to be. Well, actually, anytime is a good time to be here, but March 2014 will be very special.”

Tickets available starting at 11AM, Wednesday May 15, online at RunawayCountry.com or by phone 321-549-4204 or 877-569-7767.
