One of the hottest songs on country radio right now is Kenny Chesney’s latest single ‘Setting the World on Fire’ featuring P!nk.
It’s known as the single that completely changed the direction of Chesney’s upcoming album, which was set to drop in July, but when Kenny realized that P!nk’s vocals were a-must on the track, announced the album would now be released on October 28th.
“Pink’s voice holds so many feelings all at the same time: joy, desire, a bit of toughness, a little hurt. She’s an incredible singer – and has this great tone that shines but has a little wear to it, but doesn’t sound beat up. So I called her,” he said of the collaboration.
“Sure, it would be easier to just leave everything on schedule,” he said of the album delay, “But when you have something you know is great, and it captures the best part of being alive, why wouldn’t you slow down enough to make it happen in the moment? That’s what ‘Setting the World on Fire’ is all about – and I figure it may be a while before I make another record, and I don’t want to wait to share this because it’s so good.”
The single has been climbing the charts since its release, currently holding the #9 spot.
