Taking a break from his brief musical hiatus and promoting his latest album Cosmic Hallelujah, Kenny Chesney stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to perform his single “Jesus and Elvis."
Written by Hayes Carll, Allison Moorer and Matraca Berg, Chesney's single is a simple tune that highlights the singer's sincerity and pays tribute to his classic country style. Chesney and his band keep fairly true to the records original recorded version, but slow down the song's pace to help the audience take in the tune's lyrics and thematic elements. It also pays homage to the holidays with the mention of “Christmas lights" and “Christmas Eve."

Prior to his performance, Chesney sits down with host Meyers to discuss his now Grammy nominated album and the highly successful collaboration with pop singer Pink. “I was nominated with Pink," he tells Meyers. “I was nominated with Mac McAnally, Grace Potter, and some other people. But this is the first time that I've been nominated for something solely that I created."
Released back in October, 2016, Cosmic Hallelujah, is the country star's 16th studio album and features his duet with Pink, “Setting The World On Fire." Chesney also recently rallied together some of his best concert performances and collaborations for the double live album Live in No Shoes Nation.
