KENNY SPREADS THE LOVE
6/11/18

“The destruction was too much,” Kenny Chesney says of his desire to help the Virgin Islands. The Blue Chair Bay/Warner Nashville megastar, who immediately set up the Love for Love City Fund in response to said turmoil, has raised seven figures worth of support so far, providing generators, medical supplies, food, water, tarps, tools, transport, shipping and workers. And future proceeds from Songs for the Saints—an album (due 7/27) inspired by the local heroes and those affected by Irma—will keep the momentum alive. Love for Love City t-shirts and hats will also be sold at every tour stop.

“There were too many other places that were hurting. When I realized the help that had to happen, I did what I could to facilitate getting things done. But even more powerful to me were the people of the No Shoes Nation, who stepped up and gave what they could. They showed me how people come together in times of crisis to lift up people they don’t even know.”

“I didn’t necessarily have ‘a plan,’ but these songs needed to be written,” he continued. “And a friend said, ‘You should call the album Songs for the Saints, make it something that honors the people and the life on those islands, but also provides for them long after what happened has fallen off the news cycle.’ It hit me, that was what I was already doing and hadn’t realized it.”

“I never in the world thought I’d talk to FEMA people, but every day, there was a new problem to solve. 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.”
