Kenny Chesney recorded the song before things started going crazy with the racist police murder of George Floyd
and the divisive 2020 election. Speaking to Radio.com's Katie Neal, the country star said though he couldn't have foreseen putting "Happy Does" out during such a time of social unrest, he's glad as the single, in his view, "promotes connectivity."
"I think it's very interesting they call it social media because it makes you so antisocial," Chesney explained. "But that's what the message of the song was... about connection and just realizing that there's a lot of life to live out there if you just go do it."
