Kenny Chesney To Debut Song Written With Ed Sheeran
Country music star Kenny Chesney is set to release a song he co-wrote with pop hitmaker Ed Sheeran.
“It’s one of the most fun sessions I’ve done in a long time,” Chesney said, in a release. “I get why people love working with him.”
The single, “Tip of My Tongue,” was also co-written by Ross Copperman. It will be released on July 12 and will be part of Chesney’s forthcoming album.
“It’s funny how a figure of speech can lead you to all kinds of places. You start talking, and words fall out, and anything can happen,” Chesney recalled. “When you go in and write on any given day, the chemistry is what it is. When the idea fell out, we all just laughed and went, ‘Well, what can we do with that?’”
Sheeran previously penned songs for country artists like Kelsea Ballerini, Keith Urban and Darius Rucker. “The Rest of Our Life,” his single for Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, was the subject of a plagiarism lawsuit last year.
