Kenny Chesney has set up a foundation to support hurricane relief efforts in the Caribbean: Love for Love City Foundation. Follow the link to donate to the cause.

He said in the interview that he’s sent his private plane down with water and dog food.

Country singer Kenny Chesney sent a private plane this morning heading for the US Virgin Islands stocked with water bottles and dog food for the 30 people and 10 dogs that rode out the storm in the basement of his home in St. John.

Mr. Chesney, whose brick and stone home with hurricane proof windows was destroyed, commented on the strength of the community in an interview with HLN.

“These people are really hard workers and they’ve got great hearts, and it’s hard to rock them even with a hurricane of this size,” he said. Chesney has started a fundraising campaign called Love for Love City Foundation. He is also planning a concert to raise aid money for the rebuilding process. In the HLN interview he expressed his affection for the community, saying:“Yes, we will rebuild, and we will recover.”

Kenny was on HLN network where he talked about the destruction on St. John, where he has a home that suffered a lot of damage. Listen to Kenny’s interview below:

Kenny’s Message on Hurricane Irma Devastation

Kenny Chesney has spent a lot of time in the islands that have been devastated by Hurricane Irma in recent days. He posted this message on Thursday:

As daylight is hitting the islands, and we’re really getting a sense of how bad this all is…
I don’t know what to say. I’ve never been in war, but the devastation, the people’s faces in a place I know by heart have left me feeling helpless. It’s total devastation.

These are people who live off the sea, who depend on it. They live right there, and it’s gone. Most everyone’s displaced. They are frightened, confused, and they don’t know where help is going to come from. Those lives have changed and will never be the same. Those small islands are hard to get to and they rely on each other to get through what life hands them. For all of them, though, they’ve been where I’ve leaned for emotional and creative support for fifteen years because they are so generous.

I don’t know right now how we’re going to do this. But I want to help. I want to enlist my friends to figure out the best ways to make a difference, to help in whatever ways, small or larger, that we can. I’m blessed with so many great people… We’re already talking, trying to figure out how to get in there. And I know the No Shoes Nation is mighty. They’ve dug in before and made a difference. I have a feeling once we have our plans in the place, they’ll be there again.

Give us a few days to figure this out. Pray/send good thoughts to everyone who’s been affected or is in the path of Hurricane Irma. This is unlike anything they’ve ever seen from St Maartens to St Barths to Puerto Rico then the Caribbean and onto Key West.

Be safe. Tell someone how much you care. Remember to Spread the Love. More Soon,
Kenny

Twenty Years Ago: Kenny’s First Number One Single

posted August 30th, 2017 at 3:45 pm

Today marks twenty years since Kenny Chesney first hit number one on the country charts.

Aug. 30 marks a big anniversary for Kenny Chesney: It was on that date, 20 years ago, that the Tennessee native reached a career turning point with “She’s Got It All,” from his fourth album, I Will Stand. The song became his first No. 1 Billboard hit on Aug. 30, 1997.

Written by Craig Wiseman and Drew Womack, “She’s Got It All” was released as the lead single from I Will Stand. It debuted on the charts in May and reached the No. 1 position several months later.

Chesney had already released six singles by the time “She’s Got It All” landed at the top of the charts. He came close to the No. 1 spot with his previous single, “When I Close My Eyes,” from his previous album, Me and You; that song came in at No. 2, narrowly failing to reach the highest position.

The multi-platinum-selling singer has gone on to have more than 20 other songs go all the way to No. 1, including “How Forever Feels,” “You Had Me From Hello,” “The Good Stuff” and “There Goes My Life.”

Chesney Plays First of Two Gillette Stadium Shows

On Friday night Kenny Chesney played the first of two concerts at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The Providence Journal has a review of the show:

In the only stadium stop on his brief, unnamed summer tour, Kenny Chesney and guests treated the Foxboro faithful on Friday to a six-hour explosion of summer tunes and Chesney’s unique version of country storytelling.

With one foot in country music and another in the world occupied by boys of summer like Jimmy Buffett, Chesney kicked off his sold-out, two-show stay at Gillette Stadium with a two-hour set that spanned his 23-year recording career.

Calling Boston the birthplace of No Shoes Nation, the name he’s given his fan club, the ever-hyper Chesney ran onstage wearing a Patriots tank top and his guitar for a fast-paced version of “Beer in Mexico” that had his and three other guitars sizzling rock-and-roll style. The rock flavoring continued through a lackluster version of “Reality” and a peppy “Living in Fast Forward.”

While there were a few lulls for songs like “It’s Gone” and “Somewhere with You,” Chesney proved the ultimate showman and storyteller with an energetic and vocally solid delivery of “Summertime,” “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem” “How Forever Feels” and “She’s From Boston,” one of the 30 songs on the live album he’s releasing at the end of October. Eleven of those songs, including that one, will be from one of his 16 Gillette shows.

One of country music’s most detailed and animated storytellers, Chesney covered a wide range of topics in the 21-song set, touching on youth in “Young” and “American Kids,” love with “Anything but Mine,” and small-town memories in “All the Pretty Girls” and “I Go Back.”
