Kenny Chesney Excited For New Album
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.
“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.”
Knowing where to start with this album was hard, and easy, because this is the song that holds everything together. It’s a tribute to those islands and their unstoppable spirit. Song For The Saints is out tonight. Pre-save it now here https://t.co/7n0n1c77Xt #SONGSFORTHESAINTS pic.twitter.com/aNyfOXE00B
