Just hours earlier, Chesney and David Lee Murphy were revealed as winners of the Musical Event of the Year award for "Everything's Gonna Be Alright," a collaboration the two did for Murphy's album, No Zip Code.
Sometimes you hear songs & they just feel good. Occasionally one that feels good says something that people need to hear. That’s how I felt about Everything’s Gonna Be Alright when I heard it. Proud to have been part of this with my friend @davidleemurphy. #musicaleventoftheyear pic.twitter.com/X7l6esqcXq— Kenny Chesney (@kennychesney) November 14, 2018
The duo were going to perform the track live at the awards show, but that will no longer be happening.
