OFFSTAGE: Kenny Chesney Brings Ray of Hope to Alzheimer’s Patients

Published on January 16, 2013 by CMT News

Kenny Chesney
(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

I have a stack of gently used iPods, Nanos, iTouches and Shuffles in my basement. And Kenny Chesney has just given me a way to put them back to work. He is
out there extolling the virtues of a program called Music
Memory
, which he says is a “ray of hope for a lot of people.” Chesney says the charity creates music players full of songs
that can help reconnect people who are suffering from Alzheimer’s with good memories and to people around them. There are
countless therapeutic benefits to this kind of music therapy, so I’m glad Chesney is helping them spread the word. Right now,
the group has music players in about 60 nursing homes. But if we all send
them our old iThings
, imagine how much more music we could bring them.
