Kenny Chesney has revealed the album cover and guests who are on his new album, Songs for the Saints.
He invited Jimmy Buffett, Ziggy Marley and singer-songwriter Mindy Smith to sing on the record, which he recorded in Nashville and mixed in Key West.
The album serves as a love letter to the people of the Virgin Islands who were battered by last year's hurricanes.
He says, “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.”
Proceeds from the album, which comes out on July 27th, will help rebuild the islands.
