Kenny Chesney's 'Song for the Saints’ is out & Dolly Parton will be in a sequel to her comedy ‘9 to 5.’

Kenny Chesney was in Nashville last year when 17 people took shelter in his Virgin Island home as Hurricane Irma battered the island. That’s when he started writing songs of hope to help him to cope. That record, ‘Songs for the Saints’ is out today with Jimmy Buffett and Ziggy Marley. All proceeds go to Kenny’s foundation that funds projects post-Hurricane Irma. Kenny flew the 17 people who sheltered in his St. John home to Nashville. They camped out in his kitchen and home theater while he recorded this new album. Kenny also provided musical instruments to the kids on the island and promised if they learned to play, he’d fly them to a concert. A month ago, he flew 24 kids and their instructors to a show. Today at 1pm CT Kenny will live chat @amazonmusic.  

Dolly Parton, Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda will reunite in a sequel to their 1980 comedy, ‘9 to 5.’ Dolly said, “we’ve talked about doing this for years now and agree we’d love to if it’s right. Now we’re trying to get the script.” No word yet when production will begin though.  

Keith Urban’s ‘Graffiti U’ is out today on vinyl, along with two of his other previous records.  

Finally - Monday, Luke Combs will perform on Good Morning America.
