Kenny Chesney has always had a special place in his heart for the city of Boston, and his heart was broken just like everyone else watching the aftermath of the bombings at the Boston Marathon earlier this month. In an effort to help the healing process, Kenny has started the Spread the Love Fund to raise money for those who lost limbs as a result of the bombing and now need prosthetics.

Kenny started the fund in cooperation with Boston Medical Center with a donation of his own.  All the proceeds from his new song, "Spread the Love," will go to the fund too.

Says Kenny, "I want to help give these people as much of their lives back as possible, but I’d also like to counteract some of the negativity in the world… Remind people that there are more good people out there, and it’s up to  us  to ‘Spread the Love.’"

Anyone can donate to the fund at BMC.org/Kenny

"Spread the Love" is now available for digital download or as a track on Kenny's new album, Life on a Rock , now in stores.
