Chesney Nominated for Grammy Award

Nominations for the 60th annual Grammy Awards were announced this morning and Kenny Chesney received a nod for Country Album of the Year for ‘Cosmic Hallelujah.’

Here are the nominees he’s up against:

  • Heart Break – Lady Antebellum
  • The Breaker – Little Big Town
  • Life Changes – Thomas Rhett
  • From A Room: Volume 1 – Chris Stapleton

Kenny has been nominated five times in years past, but this is the first individual Grammy.

The Tennessee native has previously been nominated five times, including nods for duets with Pink (2016’s “Setting the World on Fire”) and Grace Potter (“You and Tequila” from 2011) and group outings with friends like Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson. But all of those were either in the duo/group or collaboration categories so this solo recognition was particularly meaningful.

That the album also took risks both creatively and promotionally makes the nomination that much sweeter for the 49-year-old singer-songwriter. While “Cosmic Hallelujah” features its share of good-time party fare, Chesney says, “’[W]e also invested in a larger dialogue about our world. Right now, it seems like that mattered more than a lot of people realized at the time.”

“For ‘Cosmic Hallelujah’ more than any album, we defied conventional wisdom every way possible,” said Chesney, noting that, among other moves, the decision was made to change the first single to the song “Noise” nine days before release because it “felt so topical and urgent.”

That song, a catchy lament for our information overloaded times hit No. 6 and was followed by two No. 1s “Setting the World on Fire” and “All the Pretty Girls.”

“This album, I did what I felt was the right thing to do for the music. People didn’t always understand,” said Chesney, who recently hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with “Live in No Shoes Nation,” a compendium of live recordings from the last decade. “But when you can put songs like ‘Noise’ onto country radio, or make videos like ‘Rich & Miserable’ with an actor like John C. McGinley — even though it’s not going to be a single —and get people to think about the world around them, that’s powerful.”

The Grammy Awards will be presented live on Sunday, January 28th on CBS.

Chesney Helps 100 Dogs Find New Homes after Hurricanes

Kenny Chesney is helping dozens of dogs find new homes after hurricanes ravaged the Virgin Islands:

It was a very Floridian welcome when dozens of soon-to-be adopted dogs arrived Thursday evening to Palm Beach International airport from the U.S. Virgin Islands. Rain showers poured around 5:45 p.m., soaking volunteers and the media as they welcomed the lovey bunch.

But a little rain is nothing to these animals. They survived two major hurricanes, Irma and Maria, this year.

This was the first group of a total of 100 dogs that were rescued by Big Dog Ranch Rescue (BDRR) along with Victory Air, country music star Kenny Chesney’s “Love for Love City,” whose home in the St. Johns was destroyed this hurricane season.

These dogs were homeless, abandoned or stranded on the islands after the two hurricanes wiped out most of the infrastructures. Most human families were evacuated and could only bring themselves, leaving their pets behind.

“Our pets are like our family and right now our family is hurting, said Laureen Simmmons, founder and President of Big Dog Ranch Rescue. “It’s a struggle for people to survive the conditions and nearly impossible for our dogs and cats so we are working with several groups to do the most we can to sustain life during this difficult time.”

The dogs were then to be transported to their designated shelters in Virginia, South Carolina, Orlando and Palm Beach County. They’re looking for forever homes.
