Scooter Carusoe co-writes “Song for the Saints” with Kenny Chesney and Tom Douglas
Congratulations Scooter Carusoe for “Song for the Saints,” a song written in collaboration with Kenny Chesney and Tom Douglas. This song was inspired by the devastation in the Virgin Islands by Hurricane Irma. Personally affected by the hurricane at his house in St. John, Chesney “wanted to make a record that shows Hurricanes Irma and Maria couldn’t extinguish the hope and the joy inside the people who live on the islands.” Chesney added, “They are facing something so traumatizing and still finding this inner beauty to tap into. Everyone is working together, finding ways to make things better. Step by step or piece by piece, they know it’s a slow process, but this music lets them know they’re not forgotten.” Chesney describes this album as “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.” Congratulations, again, to these three songwriters for this powerful song that also serves as encouragement to these resilient people.
