KENNY CHESNEY GOES LIVE WITH SIRIUS XM'S TOWN HALL ON 7/27
From Chicago's Soldier Field, Kenny Talks SONGS FOR THE SAINTS EXCLUSIVELY on No Shoes Radio & The Highway at 8 pm ET
No Shoes Radios Songs for the Saints Special Premieres at 12 am ET + Runs Every Three Hours Through the Town Hall
In celebration of the release of Songs for the Saints, Kenny is taking the story of the record straight to the fans with a live Town Hall on SiriusXM Friday, July 27 at 8 pm ET. With set-up for his show at Chicago's Soldiers Field underway, Kenny will join The Highways Storme Warren to discuss the albums inspiration, the devastation of the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, the forming of the Love for Love City Fund and its role in rebuilding the Saints, album guests Ziggy Marley, Mindy Smith and Jimmy Buffett, as well as play as much music as they can fit.
No Shoes Radio is the mojo wire for No Shoes Nation, Kenny says, and I wanted to share this record with them before anyone else. So much has gone into getting to this day and getting the music that happened in the moments of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria. I wanted to share this record with the people who stepped up and helped us with the Love for Love City Fund, who've made and continue to make such a difference. So what better place to do that than No Shoes Radio? And its great that SiriusXM is simulcasting it on The Highway as well.
All proceeds from Songs for the Saints will go to Chesneys Love for Love City Foundation, which has funded rescue and rebuilding projects across the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Healing and offering hope is a big reason for the project, as well as showing the world the spirit of the people who call those islands their home.
With the what-we-have-in-common-being-greater-than-our-differences Get Along sitting at No. 1 for a second week, the man The Los Angeles Times calls The Peoples Superstar is ready to release and talk about -- this deeply personal album. More acoustic, featuring five songs from Kenny's own pen, the project looks to the future with hope, passion and resilience.
The people of the islands faced unthinkable destruction, but somehow just kept going, Kenny says. This album is to let them know we see them, and were here to help. Every album someone buys, that money goes straight to the Love for Love City Fund, which has so far provided generators, tools, medical supplies, food and water, transporting things to the island and taking people off, raw materials for building and even instruments for the St John School for the Arts. The people who live there deserve to know they are remembered and these two SiriusXM Specials are a great way to share the love and bring people inside the process of making Songs for the Saints.
The Songs for the Saints Album Special premieres Friday at 12 am ET on No Shoes Radio with replays every three hours leading up to his second SiriusXM exclusive at 8 pm ET — Town Hall hosted by Storme Warren live from Soldier Field in Chicago, which will also air simultaneously on The Highway.
