â€œWhen we started writing this song, it felt really special,â€ shares Murphy. â€œWhen Kenny sang on it, it really took it to the next level. Iâ€™m thankful to everybody who worked on the song and to radio for playing it.â€
â€œDavid Lee Murphy is the real thing, and he understands the soul of people who work hard, rock hard, play hard and love with everything theyâ€™ve got,â€ Chesney says. â€œBut he also has a calm that should be bottled up. This song distills that in such great ways, I was just thrilled he asked me to sing on it.â€
â€œEverythingâ€™s Gonna Be Alrightâ€ is the lead single from Murphyâ€™s Blue Chair/Reviver Records albumÂ No Zip Code.Â Murphy co-wrote all 11 tracks on the album, which features his signatureÂ edgy, rocking style, a style which now dominates modern country music.
