It came from his heart, fueled by the anxiety of waiting and watching as the Caribbean islands where he makes his home were battered by Hurricane Irma, then Maria. For Kenny, Songs for the Saints wasnt an album created for hit singles or critical acclaim, but to process his own emotions and to let the people on the islands known as the Saints know they were not only not forgotten, but their spirit was being held up as a source of inspiration.
When Kenny released Live in No Shoes Nation, a two-disc live recording (Blue Chair/Columbia Nashville), people thought he was crazy. Who buys records of concerts they've already been to? But Kenny, who'd been listening back to the members of No Shoes Nation shouting, singing and cheering along over the previous decade, was blown away by the passion in venues ranging from Gillette Stadium to Red Rocks, the Rose Bowl to Asbury Parks famed Stone Pony and he wanted the fans to experience the rush, the energy and the passion he does every night listening to their voices.
