When Kenny Chesney's new Country album is released July 27, he's doing something VERY SPECIAL.
Kenny has announced that all the proceeds of the record, Songs for the Saints is going to Kenny's "Love for Love City Foundation" to help rebuild his favorite island after hurricanes Irma and Maria destroyed so much.
Kenny "stresses this album isn’t about the destruction and devastation as much as it is about the beauty of life on the islands, and the way its people create a life that is utterly their own. It was the sense of friendship and freedom, as well as the unspoiled beauty that drew him as an artist emerging with a perspective wholly his own. Songs for the Saints captures the transformation of vulnerability into unspeakable strength and courage. Tempering the devastation that Hurricanes Irma and Maria left across the bracelet of islands with an unstoppable elation and celebration, it renders the essence of the life he found there – and the deep joy and humanity the residents demonstrate on a daily basis. With “Get Along,” the banjo-driven ‘what we have in common is greater than what offends us about our differences’ sitting at #2 on the country radio charts, “Pirate Song” offers the whisper of escape and the stillness of the grace that sets us free. “Better Boat” is available this Friday, July 13, with the full album again out July 27."
