Kenny Chesney has recruited a couple of his island friends for his upcoming album Songs for the Saints that will be released on July 27th. All proceeds from the album will go to Kenny’s foundation Love for Love City for hurricane relief in the Virgin Islands.

Kenny and Jimmy recorded a collaboration of “Trying to Reason with Hurricane Season” for the album.

“Each one of them has a tie to my life in the islands, but also reflect some piece of what we’re trying to do,” he shared in a recent press release. “Ziggy Marley, and his family’s legacy, holds so much truth for all of the people I know down there. Mindy Smith’s ‘Come To Jesus’ was an album I lived with from morning to night when I was first going down there – and her voice sounds like an angel. And Jimmy, more than the lost shaker of salt, understands the poetry of the islands beyond what tourists see, the life in a way that made a song written decades ago so current. I’m honored they also want to help.”

Here’s the full track list:

  1. Songs for the Saints
  2. Every Heart
  3. Get Along
  4. Pirate Song
  5. Love for Love City (with Ziggy Marley)
  6. Ends Of The Earth
  7. Gulf Moon
  8. Island Rain
  9. Trying To Reason With Hurricane Season (with Jimmy Buffett)
  10. We’re All Here
  11. Better Boat (featuring Mindy Smith)

Pre-order the album now at Amazon or iTunes.
