If one thing is certain — there is no natural born country singer who takes America by storm — like Kenny Chesney. The 50-year-old superstar, originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, is continuing to keep communities spirits around the world alive — as well as — growing them. He did just that.
Just last year, when one of the deadliest Hurricane’s in the Atlantic region, Irma, struck the United States, Cuba, Virgin Islands, and Caribbean Islands, it definitely took a toll on Chesney’s life and impacted him greatly. Chesney, who owns property in the Islands, and has strong ties to the community, so he felt it was time for a new uplifting album, ‘Song for the Saints.’
Chesney mentioned that his 17th studio album, ‘Song for the Saints,’ reflects a turning point in his life — which is set to be released on Friday, July 27. And it’s safe to say that his newly released album draws inspiration from the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, however, Chesney doesn’t exactly see it that way.
“This album isn’t about St. John, so much as it’s about what happened to St. John and all those islands you didn’t see on the news,” Chesney said. He added, “To just see the devastation and what that does to people is one thing, but then there’s this courage and resilience people find.”
According to Chesney, this album is a new adventure for him and his music. Not to mention, this album is his first release on Blue Chair/Warner Bros. Nashville. As for Chesney, he opened up about his take on his new album on Twitter. It’s also worth mentioning, though, this video has already garnered more than 1,000 likes and has been seen over 20,000 times.
I’ve never made a record in such chaos, but I took every bit of that into the studio. You can hear it in the vocals of songs like #LoveforLoveCity. What a beautiful way to make a record for people I love so much. #SONGSFORTHESAINTS is out Friday. Preorder https://t.co/ctT7FvSiWs pic.twitter.com/UbI7a0ph4d
