Kenny Chesney - Songs for the Saints (New CD)
2018 release from the country music superstar. In every artist's career, certain albums stand out as a significant piece of their soul. For Kenny Chesney, Songs for the Saints is that album. Co-produced with Buddy Cannon, the 12 tracks mark a deep dive into "the places that save you." Beyond the euphoric "Get Along, " the banjo and people-positive message tempo track hovering outside the Top 10, Chesney wrote or co-write five tracks. As with any release from the East Tennessee songwriter/superstar, there are songwriters getting their first cuts, surprise collaborations, an obscure jewel and the emotional fabric that makes the No Shoes Nation a place rich with heart, tenacity and the will to embrace life on it's terms. "I feel like I know what this album's supposed to be, and I know how much it means to me, " he says. "I wanted to get it just right, before we set a release date... and I think we've got it. I'm just glad we'll have it out in time for me to play some of these songs this summer before the Trip Around the Sun Tour is over."
