EDITORS’ NOTES

Kenny Chesney was born and raised in Tennessee, but the country giant has long called Saint John, in the U.S. Virgin Islands, his second home. When it was devastated by Hurricane Irma in 2017, he felt moved to write. “I’ve spent the majority of my adult life walking those beaches and hanging out in those bars and writing songs,” he told Billboard. “All of a sudden, it was…very broken.” Contemplative and cathartic, Songs for the Saints features appearances by Jimmy Buffett, Ziggy Marley, and Lord Huron (with whom Chesney recuts “Ends of the Earth,” a wistful serenade that originally appeared on the band’s 2012 album, Lonesome Dreams). On the tearjerking ballad “Better Boat,” Chesney and Mindy Smith find strength in struggle: "I ride the waves I can’t control/I’m learning how to build a better boat.”

Better Boat will blow you out of the water :)

The very first time I heard this song 5 years ago, I KNEW it was the perfect song for Kenny Chesney! I’m so happy he picked this Travis Meadows original to be on this very special record. I’ve ordered my pre-sale and will be counting down the days to the official release!

I love Kenny he is still real country

He’s still way more real than Sam Hunt and Florida Georgia Line!! I like him better in his roots but he’s still better than most modern country Artist.

One Of Kenny's Best!

Every song is a gem. "Better Boat" is perfection, truly Kenny's best song on the album and with Mindy Smith, singing vocals too, the simplicity of the song soars. "Get Along" the Billboard #1 for two weeks, is a good sing-a-long song. "Trying To Reason With Hurricane Season" sung with Jimmy Buffet is another winner. "Pirate Song", "Ends Of The Earth" and more all all good reasons to purchase this album. All proceeds go to Kenny's Love For Love City Foundation and his label, Warner agreed to do the same.
