Kenny Chesney is donating the money he makes from the Songs for the Saints
record to his Love for Love City Fund, which helps the Virgin Islands rebuild after the storms. "I didn't necessarily have a plan," Chesney revealed to ABC Radio
, "but these songs needed to be written. And a friend said, 'You should call the album Songs for the Saints, make it something that honors the people and the life on those islands, but also provides for them long after what happened has fallen off the news cycle.'"
"It hit me," he added, "that was what I was already doing and hadn't realized it."
