Country music singer-songwriter Kenny Chesney has enlisted some top talent for his new album, Songs for the Saints. More here!

Country music superstar Kenny Chesney‘s upcoming Songs for the Saints album will also feature collaborations with Ziggy Marley, Mindy Smith, and Jimmy Buffett!

As the Tennessee native says of his musical guests, “Each one of them has a tie to my life in the islands, but also reflect some piece of what we’re trying to do. Ziggy Marley, and his family’s legacy, holds so much truth for all of the people I know down there. 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. And 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.”

This album captures Chesney’s love for the islands, its people, and the influence the region has had on his music. Pre-Sales for Songs for the Saints begin on Friday, June 15th and will be available everywhere on July 27th. Proceeds from the record will go to the star’s Love for Love City Fund for Virgin Island Relief and help the islands recovers from recent hurricane destruction.

“Creating like this, you don’t have a master plan, but the music will take you and teach you,” Chesney explains. “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. They had no power, no real food, nothing; they dug in, started clearing the land and rebuilding. To me, that’s inspiring.”
