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.

Chesney Notches Billboard Number One Album

Kenny Chesney has landed his eighth number one album with Live in No Shoes Nation:

Kenny Chesney became the first artist to land a live album atop the Billboard 200 in seven years as the country singer’s all-star live LP Live in No Shoes Nation debuted at Number One.

Live in No Shoes Nation sold 219,000 copies in its first week of availability, with the bulk of that total coming from a deal that coupled tickets to Chesney’s 2018 stadium tour with a free copy of the live album. However, the sales only apply to fans that redeemed a code to acquire the live album, which only a fraction of the million-plus ticket buyers did, Billboard estimates.

By finishing in the top spot, Chesney now has eight Number One albums in his catalog, only one behind Garth Brooks’ record among country artists for most chart-topping albums.

Live in No Shoes Nation is the first live album since the Hope for Haiti Now compilation in 2010 to rule the Billboard 200, and the highest-selling live album since Paul McCartney’s Back in the U.S. Live 2002 debuted with 224,000 copies 15 years ago.

‘Live in No Shoes Nation’ Headed for Number One

According to Billboard, Kenny Chesney is heading towards another number one album with Live in No Shoes Nation:

Country king Kenny Chesney is on his way to his eighth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart, according to industry forecasters. Sources suggest his new live effort, Live in No Shoes Nation, could start atop next week’s tally with perhaps 200,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Nov. 2. Most of that sum will be driven by traditional album sales, bolstered by a concert ticket/album bundle sale redemption promotion with Chesney’s upcoming stadium tour.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the new Nov. 18-dated Billboard 200 chart (where Chesney could debut at No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Nov. 5.

Chesney previously led the Billboard 200 with Life on a Rock (in 2013), Hemingway’s Whiskey (2010), Lucky Old Sun (2008), The Road and the Radio (2005), Be as You Are: Songs From an Old Blue Chair (2005), When the Sun Goes Down (2004) and No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems (2002).
