"Somewhere with You" is a song written by Shane McAnally and J.T. Harding, and recorded by American country pop singer Kenny Chesney. It was released in November 2010 as the second single from his album Hemingway's Whiskey.


Background and content

In an interview with Country Music Television, Chesney said, "It's so different but I still felt that it was really me. I felt melodically it was completely different and sexy". In an interview with Billboard, Chesney said, "This is a tortured soul song. If you get going with somebody, you've been in a relationship and for whatever reason she's gone or you're gone. And you're not necessarily in another relationship, but you're with somebody else, just starting something with somebody else. Trying to balance both those worlds is tough."

Critical reception

Whitney Pastorek of Entertainment Weekly said that the song "has a compellingly dark vibe Chesney should try out more often." Jon Caramanica of The New York Times believed that the chorus "recalls nothing so much as the Bee Gees." Rick Moore of American Songwriter called the song one of the album's "high points".

Chart performance

"Somewhere with You" debuted at number 35 on the Hot Country Songs chart dated for the week ending November 6, 2010. The song peaked at number one on the week ending January 29, 2011 and held that position for three weeks.

"Somewhere with You" entered the Adult Contemporary charts at number 26 on the chart dated for March 19, 2011.

As of June 2011, the song was sold 1,000,000 times in the United States.

Reaching Platinum in the United States in July 2011, Somewhere with You is Chesney's first single achieving this feat.
