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

Kenny Chesney isn’t doing many shows this year, and he’s taking the chance to play tourist:

The superstar from East Tennessee most recently engaged his wanderlust on an excursion to Europe.

“There’s a lot of places that I’m curious about,” Kenny says. “I love being a tourist. I went to Italy this past year and I loved it because I love to eat,” he laughs.

“I love red wine so it was a lot of fun. I grew up loving cheese, tomatoes,” the notorious fitness buff goes on. “All that’s in Italy. I love it and… I love being a tourist when I can be.”

Chesney Makes Surprise Appearance at Sammy Hagar & Emeril Fundraiser

Check out this fun story from Sammy Hagar about a chance encounter with Kenny Chesney:

Each year Emeril and I put together a special experience to raise money for his foundation – we’ve done dinner in Cabo, in Hawaii and this year it was fishing and lunch on Emeril’s boat! This afternoon we spent with the 10 people that bought the package, and what a lunch it was!

An hour into the boat ride we saw this big gorgeous gunmetal gray 86ft Riva with a few beautiful people on it– I looked closer and noticed it was Kenny Chesney! I screamed at him and he stopped,
backed up, and we had a couple high-fives, a toast, and Emeril handed over to Kenny a big plate of barbecue ribs and a jar of about a half pound of beautiful caviar– can you believe this shit!? We said goodbye and then Kenny showed up at the event later that night at the Marina Club House, and jumped on stage to sing a really soft version of “Eagles Fly”. Vic and I played an acoustic set for over an hour, and Kari joined in for “One Sip”, “When The Sun Don’t Shine”, and “All We Need Is An Island” – it was an unbelievably satisfying and successful event!

Afterwards, Kenny hung out and we polished off a couple bottles of Da’ kine, what a night!

Chesney Ranks High on Forbes Top Country Music Earners List

As they do every so often, Forbes is out with a list of the top earning country musicians and Kenny Chesney is near the top of the list.

On his massive, multi-year World Tour, Garth Brooks has been piling up a nice chunk of change. According to a new Forbes list, the artist briefly known as Chris Gaines is this year’s highest-earning artist in all of country music.

Forbes recently released a list of the top-earning country artists, and the names at the top of the magazine’s ranking likely won’t surprise you: Kenny Chesney, who earns big bucks starring in ads for Corona beer and Costa sunglasses, ranked second behind Brooks, with a net worth of $56 million. Luke Bryan came in not far behind at No. 3, earning $53 million, and Toby Keith and Jason Aldean landed at No. 4 ($47.5 million) and No. 5 ($36.5 million), respectively. Shania Twain, the highest-paid woman in country music, earned the No. 7 spot, having brought in $27.5 million.

According to Forbes, their rankings are calculated by tabulating record sales data provided by Nielsen, touring numbers from Pollstar and “independent research on non-musical business ventures.” If you’re feeling a little broke compared to Chesney, Aldean and company, just remember: Their listed net worths do not include payouts for agents, managers and lawyers.
