Kenny Chesney's new album, Songs for the Saints, will help rebuild his beloved Virgin Islands, many of which suffered mass destruction during last year's fierce hurricane season. Kenny himself lost his home on the island of St. John, as did many residents of the islands, as well as the Florida Keys.
Kenny says, "I’ve never made a record in the middle of such chaos and anxiety, but I took every bit of that into the studio -- and you can hear it in the vocals. Looking back, what a beautiful way to make a record for people I love so much. And now, I can give that music back to them in a way that makes a difference.”
Proceeds from the album, which comes out on July 27th, will benefit the Virgin Island Relief Fund.
Thousands of people in the Caribbean are still without power, or are homeless. There's still a huge need for supplies and relief. It's wonderful that Kenny is walking the walk!
