Kenny Chesney's album to benefit Hurricane Irma victims is finished and ready for pre-orders.
When the hurricane destroyed homes in the Virgin Islands, including Kenny's last September, he went into the studio and started working on an album. Kenny said, “To me, it’s about the hope, the strength, the joy and the courage they are bringing to the task of rebuilding after a kind of destruction no one has ever seen before. To let them know, they’re not only not forgotten months later, but we’re holding them up as inspiration – and offering help in any way that we can, including music. Because music heals, it inspires, and this is for them.”
Songs for the Saints features some of Kenny's famous friends including, Jimmy Buffett, Ziggy Marley and Mindy Smith and funds raised will support local charities in the Caribbean. Pre-orders start tomorrow (Friday) and the album goes on sale July 27.
- “Get Along” Is in the Top 10
- Kenny is an 8-time CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year winner.
