Raise your hand if you're a HUGE Kenny Chesney fan!! ✋ ✋ I am so excited about Kenny's new album coming out July 27th called 'Songs For The Saints'. He details below what the album is about and what it means to him, and I just sounds SO good!

I've always been a Kenny fan. From the early days to now. I know some people are turned off by the beach/island vibe in his music, but honestly I feel I connect with that MORE than his early stuff! One of my favorite things to do is listen to Kenny's latest albums with beach sounds playing on YouTube in the background haha!

So what do you think of his description of the new album...good/bad?? Tweet me and let me know -> twitter.com/aaronmichaelfm

Songs For The Saints is out July 27 and it's about the places that save us. So much has happened since I went off the road in 2016 and all of it, in one way or another, has ended up on this album. It’s special to me because of what it says (to me and for me) about life, the world around us, how fragile it all can be and about somehow still finding the best parts of you, and moving towards them. Leaving the label where I’d spent my whole career was both scary and exciting. There’s that rush of not knowing anything about how this new company works, and digging in. But there’s also a special thrill of being around people who truly understand what you’re doing and who are excited to be part of this music. It’s inspiring in all new ways when you have people match your own passion. I was at a turning point in my life on so many levels... and then Hurricane Irma hit the Virgin Islands. But this album isn’t about St. John so much as it’s about what happened to St. John and all those islands you didn’t see on the news. To just see the devastation and what that does to people is one thing, but then there’s this courage and resilience people find… This is not a literal record, but it is an album about the refuges we all have, how temporary life is and the way we navigate to better places, dig in and face the destruction. And sometimes, we learn to own our wild hearts in the process. I feel like I know what this album’s supposed to be and I know how much it means to me. 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 #triparoundthesun tour is over. I love ya @noshoesnation. Thank you for loving the music. #songsforthesaints #loveforlovecity
