Kenny Chesney’s new album Songs for the Saints has debuted at number one on the Billboard Country Albums chart as well as number two on the all-genre Top 200 chart.

“All I knew was that I was so scared for a lot of people and places that I really loved,” said Chesney of the inspiration. “I was anxious, and I was thousands of miles away. I needed to do something, something that would let those people know they weren’t gonna be forgotten when the news cycle moved on. I had no idea it would be an album, but the songs were something they could sing. And now here we are.”

According to Nielsen, in its first week, the project has sold in excess of 64,600 copies, with consumption bringing the total to 77,300.

“This album means the world to me, because of what it’s about and what it means to the people of the Virgin Islands,” Chesney shared. “A lot of who I am is because of the time I’ve spent down there, and how it’s shaped the man I’ve become. It’s how I see the world, and how my music has evolved. So the fact No Shoes Nation has supported this record – a record where all the proceeds go to island recovery – does my heart good.”

Get the album now at Amazon or iTunes.
