Kenny Chesney’s new album “Songs for the Saints” was inspired in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, which devastated the U.S. Virgin Islands, where he owns a home and a bar. Many of Kenny’s possessions were destroyed in the hurricane, although he tells “Good Morning America” one thing that survived was actually a gift from a fan.
The item was a black shotski, a ski-shaped piece of wood with shot glasses and the words "No Shoes Nation." Kenny got the item in a trade with a fan who he saw using it while tailgating before a 2016 show, and a picture of it was featured on the cover of his live record.
"It was one of a few things that made it through Hurricane Irma, believe it or not, and I just felt like it described the bond, how strong our bond was -- between me and the audience," Kenny shares." "I decided when it made it through that I was going to bring that shotski back and give it back to the person that gave it to me and that's what we did."
