Kenny Chesney Scores 31st No. 1 Hit With “Here and Now”

Kenny Chesney scored his 31st No. 1 single as “Here and Now” ascended to the top of the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.

Penned by Craig Wiseman, David Garcia and David Lee Murphy at a writing retreat Kenny set up in Malibu, the tune beckons listeners to live in the present with a chorus that proclaims: “You and me, ain’t it good to be alive / Ain’t no better place, ain’t no better time / Than here and now.”

“When we recorded ‘Here And Now,’ it was this awesome rush that captured the peak moments, finding them in your day, creating them and not just waiting around for them to happen,” says Kenny. “It was the perfect song as we were all getting ready for another summer of shows. But now, in some ways, this song is even more in the moment because we all have to remember to find joy.”

Kenny’s 31st No. 1 single on the Billboard Country Airplay chart extends his lead atop the all-time list for most chart-toppers, followed by Tim McGraw (29), Blake Shelton (27), Alan Jackson (26) and George Strait (26).
