The third instant grat track from Kenny Chesney's upcoming album, Songs For The Saints, is called “Better Boat,” featuring Mindy Smith. Fans will get the song as early as Friday (July 13th) when they pre-oder the album, which will be released on July 27th. Kenny was inspired to write and record songs for this project after his involvement in the rescue and cleanup after the devastation to the U.S. and British Virgin Islands from Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Kenny said, “Of all the songs on there, ‘Better Boat,’ I think really captures the emotion of that moment – and the months following. There’s an acceptance it takes to face those challenges and that uncertainty. The lyric has that line, ‘I ride the waves I can’t control . . .’ And that’s exactly how this was, and in some ways, still is.” All proceeds from Songs for the Saints will go to Kenny’s Love for Love City Foundation, which has funded rescue and rebuilding projects across the US and British Virgin Islands.
