David Lee Murphy Teams Up with Pal Kenny Chesney on ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Alright’
Hoping to spread a message of love during some rather dark times, Murphy wanted his radio release to radiate good vibes and he knew Chesney created that mindset with his laidback approach to his sound. The two just chill on the head-bopping tune as they look optimistic into society’s future.
“You watch the news, and look around… it’s a tough world,” Murphy explained. “You know, you can lean into all of that, or you can step back and trust life. When you do that, it makes it easier to take a deep breath and roll with everything that’s going on around you.”
It didn’t take much convincing for Chesney to hop on the recording, as he totally agreed with the song’s message and wanted to help Murphy spread it around through the powerful healing of music.
“When David Lee sent me the song, it was such a great groove, it hooked me immediately. But what it says – and how it said it – is one of those sentiments for the times. We can all benefit from slowing down and trying to break the momentum, trust the universe and let go of what’s got a hold of us,” Chesney said of the track in a recent press release.
Murphy and Chesney go way back in the business as Murphy wrote a number of Chesney’s biggest hits, as well as contributed to artists like Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Gary Allan and more. Their collaboration will wind up on Murphy’s album, No Zip Code, which he’s been working on for about two years now.
