Congrats to Kenny Chesney who has now scored his 27th number-one single of his career, with his smash hit, “Wild Child,” and it’s a song that Kenny says has been a very special part of his summer!

Kenny says: Wild Child’ was one of those songs that has really been a blessing for us, and I’m really glad that I was able to write that song and that we’re doin’ it in the show now and seein’ the reaction that we’re seeing.” Chesney also has this to say about performing this song on tour:

In a press release, Kenny said, in part:

“I knew this was a very special song when I finished writing it with Shane (McAnally) and Josh (Osborne). It was everything I wanted to say about what makes a woman alluring…about those things that capture your imagination and make you want to be closer. It certainly wasn’t the norm of what was happening with country radio, but it felt like something I wanted people to remember, to think about. We didn’t know how it was going to do, especially right now when ballads are everything people aren’t listening to, but we believed in the song. I wanna say ‘thank you’ to country radio for thinking outside the box. Your support made this possible.”

“Wild Child” also marks the first number-one single for Kenny’s song collaborator, Grace Potter, about whom he said, “When we wrote this, I knew we needed Grace Potter’s voice on there, because she is everything the song is about. That it gets to be her first Number One record somehow seems so right, because the song is her, as well as so many other women and young girls that I know.”

“Wild Child” is the third consecutive number-one smash from Kenny’s album, The Big Revival, which also includes “Til It’s Gone” and “American Kids.” Be listening soon for Kenny’s new single, “Save It for a Rainy Day.”

We look forward to seeing Kenny Chesney on August 22nd at Ford Field on his Big Revival Tour, with special guests, Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert and Chase Rice! CLICK HERE for all the details and ticket info!
