Country music star Kenny Chesney's song “Here and Now” reminds us all to live our lives in the moment! Check it out here...

Country music superstar Kenny Chesney’s commitment to music that inspires others drives his latest song “Here and Now”! With a bridge that posits, “lotta people dreaming ‘bout one day, some day/ waiting just around the bend/ I used to be one wondering when they’d come/ but now I’m living in…” before tumbling into the song’s chorus, the star from East Tennessee reminds us to live our lives in the moment, because it’s the only thing guaranteed.

“There is so much in the world we can’t change,” Chesney shares, “and you can get so caught up in that, you miss your life. I can’t save the world, but I can make music that makes people happy, play shows that let them forget their problems for an evening – and occasionally cut a song that maybe reminds all of us what we ought to be embracing.”

Watch the new music video below!

“Here and Now” is two minutes and 51 seconds of euphoric attitude adjustment. Opening with a swooping electric guitar and drums that rush in fast and hard, the David Lee Murphy/Craig Wiseman/David Garcia-written rave-up weighs the varying realities of Chesney’s life and offers a clear assessment that the sweetest moment is the present.

“This song kind of blew my mind,” Chesney explains. “The chorus is everything I feel about that time onstage with No Shoes Nation…that rush of it absolutely being the best place, best moment in the entire world. There’s no rush like it.”

Created during a writing retreat Chesney staged in Malibu, designed to be equal parts songwriting escape and catching up with old friends, it captured the spark of the trip. Beyond telling stories, drinking some cold beers, soaking up the sun and remembering the way songwriters used to hang out, there were meaningful conversations about priorities, focus and how easy it is to let your life pass you by.

“Like the chorus says, ‘you and me, ain’t it good to be alive/ ain’t no better place, ain’t no better time/ than here and now…’,” says the star. “I know there will days and moments that suck, but so many of them, we can decide how we feel and what we want to focus on. I’m hoping No Shoes Nation – and everyone else – can hear this and feel really good about the moment.”

“Here and Now” Lyrics

I’ve seen the skyline in New York City
Fireflies in Tennessee
Sipped a little ‘shine from a paper sack
That’ll knock the horns off a Cadillac
I must’ve sat on a dozen islands
I’ve watched the sun sink into the sea
Been there done that got the t-shirt and hat
But my favorite place to be is
Here and now

Nowhere else in this world tonight
You and me, ain’t it good to be alive
Ain’t no better place, ain’t no better time
Than here and now
Everybody’s waitin’, but they’re waitin’ on what
Better get to livin’ ’cause all we got is
Here and now

Think I fell in love for the first time
With the Gulf of Mexico
Thought I found a true love in Malibu, but
That water was a little too cold
Yeah I left a few tears in the rearview
One or two that were hard to forget
Why you think we call the present the present
’Cause there ain’t no better gift than
Here and now

Nowhere else in this world tonight
You and me, ain’t it good to be alive
Ain’t no better place, ain’t no better time
Than here and now
Everybody’s waitin’, but they’re waitin’ on what
Better get to livin’ ’cause all we got is
Here and now

A lot of people dreamin’ ’bout a one day
Somedays waitin’ just around the bend
I used to be one, wonderin’ when they’d come
But now I’m living in (but now I’m living in)
(Here and now)
Yeah I’m living in the

Here and now
Nowhere else in this world tonight
You and me, ain’t it good to be alive
Ain’t no better place, ain’t no better time
Than here and now
Everybody’s waitin’, but they’re waitin’ on what
Better get to livin’ ’cause all we got is
Here and now
