Kenny Chesney has unveiled the track listing for his upcoming album Songs for the Saints and it includes a couple of collaborations with his island friends.

Pre-order the album now at Amazon or iTunes.

‘Songs for the Saints’ will be released July 27th.

Track listing:

  1. Songs for the Saints
  2. Every Heart
  3. Get Along
  4. Pirate Song
  5. Love for Love City (with Ziggy Marley)
  6. Ends Of The Earth
  7. Gulf Moon
  8. Island Rain
  9. Trying To Reason With Hurricane Season (with Jimmy Buffett)
  10. We’re All Here
  11. Better Boat (featuring Mindy Smith)

“I knew I wanted this album to show the spirit of the people, but I wanted it to focus on healing, on their gift to rise above such complete chaos and devastation,” Chesney said in a release. “They had no power, no real food, nothing; they dug in, started clearing the land and rebuilding. To me, that’s inspiring.”

“To let them know, they’re not only not forgotten months later, but we’re holding them up as inspiration — and offering help in any way that we can, including music,” Chesney added. “Because music heals, it inspires, and this is for them.”

Songs for the Saints features some special musical guests who have ties to the island: Ziggy Marley, Mindy Smith and of course, Chesney’s buddy Jimmy Buffett.

“Ziggy Marley and his family’s legacy hold so much truth for all of the people I know down there,” Chesney said. “Mindy Smith’s Come To Jesus was an album I lived with from morning to night when I was first going down there — and her voice sounds like an angel.”

As for Buffett’s contribution, it just made sense for Chesney.

“Jimmy, more than the lost shaker of salt, understands the poetry of the islands beyond what tourists see, the life in a way that made a song written decades ago so current. I’m honored they also want to help.”

Chesney Performs at RFK Remembrance Ceremony

A remembrance was held at Arlington National Cemetery on Wednesday to mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy and Kenny Chesney attended and performed “This Land is Your Land.” (VIDEO below)

Of all who delivered the words of Robert Kennedy at Arlington cemetery on Wednesday, 50 years after his assassination, surely none felt them as intimately as John Lewis.

He read from the speech – an unscripted plea for love, wisdom, justice and compassion for black and white – that he personally witnessed Kennedy give in Indianapolis on the night that Martin Luther King was shot.

“It was very, very moving,” he told the Guardian. “From time to time you have what I call an executive session with yourself. I said to myself that evening: ‘We still have Bobby.’ Two months later, he was gone.”

Now a Democratic congressman from Georgia, Lewis was among readers and speakers including former president Bill Clinton, the House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, and 18-year-old gun safety campaigner Emma González at the hour-long memorial service in bright sunshine. Country singer Kenny Chesney sang This Land Is Your Land and the American University Gospel Choir performed The Battle Hymn of the Republic, a favourite of Kennedy’s.

Listen to “Song For The Saints” Title Track

Kenny Chesney has released the title track for his upcoming album ‘Song for the Saints’:

“Song for the Saints” opens softly, with the strums of an acoustic guitar as Chesney sings, “Long before a boat anchored the harbor / Long before steel drums filled the breeze / God lifted these islands from the ocean / They stood strong for centuries / So it’s fitting that they were named after men with golden halos / ‘Cause angels don’t give in just ’cause a little wind blows …” Chesney owned a home on the island of St. John, which Hurricane Irma left devastated in the late summer and early fall of 2017; he was inspired to write Songs for the Saints after seeing firsthand how residents of the Virgin Islands came to together after Irma and Hurricane Maria.

“There’s so much to say, and so much music on this record. Knowing where to start was hard and easy, because this is the song that really holds everything together,” Chesney says in a press release. “It’s a tribute to those islands and their unstoppable spirit. Even as people were coming off the islands — some just to not tax the limited resources — so many of my friends were digging in, trying to figure out what needed to be done and getting on to the work of clearing debris, creating habitable space for those staying and reminding all of us how Island Strong they all are.”

Chesney Saved 1,000 Dogs’ Lives

Thanks to his Love for Love City foundation, Kenny Chesney’s efforts resulted in 1,000 dogs’ lives being saved:

The recent hurricane season wroght devastation on the British and U.S. Virgin Islands. A successive set of hurricanes, Irma and Maria, led to thousands being evacuated and displaced, and, sadly, thousands of pets were left behind as their families were forced to flee the storms.

Well, if you know anything about Kenny Chesney, you’d know this is something he would not stand for.

And he didn’t.

Thanks to his foundation, Love for Love City, over 1,000 lives were saved, as animals were rescued, treated, and rehabilated, and are now available for adoption at Big Dog Ranch Rescue. And Kenny didn’t just lend his fame to the cause, or put his face on a human-interest story for the exposure; he actually paid for the planes and the boats to transport the animals to the mainland.

Says Lauree Simmons, Founder and President of Big Dog Ranch Rescue, “We are just so appreciative that he jumped in to help us, because without Love for Love City and Kenny Chesney…we wouldn’t of been able to save these innocent lives.”

Watch the Music Video for “Get Along”

Kenny Chesney has released a music video for his latest single “Get Along”:

Directed by Shaun Silva and filmed largely amid the citizens of Chesney’s No Shoes Nation, the video captures a sunny spectacle of good times as fans party outside Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium – the first stop of his 2018 Trip Around the Sun Tour. Shots of mobile tiki bars and parking lot beach parties are mixed in with impromptu performances, including one from the deck of a pontoon boat towed out into the crowd.

With its rolling banjo riff and sing-along ready chorus, “Get Along” is the optimistic first single from Chesney’s seventeenth studio album, Songs for the Saints – a project the superstar says was inspired by the way his friends and neighbors in the Virgin Islands bounced back after Hurricane Irma in 2017.
