Kenny Chesney 's line of Costa sunglasses are inspired by his life on the water, so it's only fitting that he donate the proceeds from those sunglasses to help the Coastal Conservation Association. The money Kenny contributed to the organization will help place two man-made reefs into the St. John's River in Jacksonville, FL, to create a habitat for fish about 20 miles inland from the Atlantic.

While Kenny has a well-documented passion for the ocean, he stresses that taking care of the ocean is important to everyone living on the planet. He says, "The ecological balance is very delicate, especially in Florida, so I am honored to help them achieve this goal.”

On the music front, Kenny has filmed a new video in Jamaica with the Wailers for their song, "Spread the Love." Look for it to come out soon.
