Kenny Chesney is the latest country star to collaborate with Ed Sheeran as the two co-wrote Chesney’s new single “Tip of My Tongue.”

Kenny shared via press release, “As a co-write with a new writer, it’s one of the most fun sessions I’ve done in a long time. I get why people love working with him.”

Chesney said of the song on Instagram, “With all the great songs that have been written in this town, I think you always want to do something a little different. There’s this moment when you look at someone and you know they contain everything. You want to know everything, consume everything about them. It’s why we say ‘It’s a long way down,’ because you want to know it all.”

He continued, “I wrote this with two guys that I really respect as songwriters, @rosscopperman and @teddysphotos. The way creativity works in creative people is so different, but it’s always exciting. It’s one of the most fun sessions I’ve done in a long time. And the best part, we got a melody that feels like what’s going on lyrically. The music matches the words and you can just drift in it.”

“Tip of My Tongue” is coming digitally on July 12.
