Kenny Chesney Covers Foreigner’s “I Want to Know What Love Is” on New Album, “Cosmic Hallelujah”

I gotta take a little time
A little time to think things over
I better read between the lines
In case I need it when I’m older

He may be a little older at 48 years old, but that hasn’t stopped Kenny Chesney from getting creative with a hidden track on his 17th studio album, Cosmic Hallelujah, which drops tomorrow (Oct. 28).

On track No. 12—which isn’t referenced on the album’s track listing or liner notes—Kenny covers “I Want to Know What Love Is,” a single from Foreigner’s 1984 album, Agent Provocateur. Written and composed by Foreigner’s Mick Jones, the tune was the band’s biggest hit, reaching No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart in February 1985.

Nash Country Daily got a sneak listen to the hidden track, and while it won’t ever be mistaken for Foreigner’s original, Kenny’s laid-back vocals and the frolicking guitars more than hold their own, providing a treat-worthy capper to the album that Kenny fans will surely dig.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
