Chesney toldHLN's Morning Express with Robin Meade that his home on St. John was destroyed, but that he is much more anxious about the people living on the island than he is about his home.

"It's just simply gone", Chesney said of his property. "This place, these islands, have meant so much to me". "It's really odd to see such a lovely place look like a war zone".

After watching the Virgin Islands - an area he loves and lives in - get hit by Hurricane Irma, Kenny Chesney is doing whatever he can to help those affected. He also asks fans, if they're able, to donate to his newly established Love for Love City Foundation, or purchase some of the merchandise that will benefit the foundation. Virgin Atlantic has also arranged for relief flights to the British Virgin Islands and Antigua, he added.
