Happy Does

Album: Here and Now (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • Brad Clawson, Brock Berryhill, Greylan James and Jamie Paulin wrote this lighthearted tropical tune about finding happiness in doing the simple things. A couple of feel-good characters help illustrate the point. They are:

    A young musician chasing her dreams in Boulder, Colorado who is playing for tips. "Every pickle jar, crinkled dollar takes her another mile high."

    A four-times divorced ex-marine who's now working nights selling gasoline is, "Hummin' along, schoolin' ya on the songs on his station."
  • Chesney said the first time he heard the track, it made him smile. "It's just being happy and being thankful and being humble and having gratitude - those are the things that I try to lean on," he reflected.
