After the romping coming together in a divided world Get Along broke Billboards Country Airplay Chart record for the Most Country No. 1s by an artist, Kenny returns to country radio with the life-changing Better Boat. A song of grace in the face of humanity, it empowers without overpowering.
When Kenny made Songs for the Saints, he wasnt thinking about chart positions, country radio or how these songs would play in his live shows—he was worried about the people of the Virgin Islands. Riding out a Category 5 hurricane without the same kinds of safety nets people on mainland take for granted, he understood the peril, and he channeled it into Song for the Saints, then Love for Love City.
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.
