Kenny Chesney’s next album will be here July 27th and it’s called  “Songs for the Saints.”

Chesney revealed that the album is influenced and inspired by the devastation and events after Hurricane Irma.

His house in St. John was completely ruined by Irma and actually pushed back this whole album from it’s original date. Kenny says “This is not a literal record, but it is an album about the refuges we all have, how temporary life is and the way we navigate to better places, dig in, and face the destruction.  I feel like I know what this album’s supposed to be, and I know how much it means to me.  I wanted to get it just right, before we set a release date.  I’m glad we’ll have it out in time for me to play these songs before the tour is over.”
