A Tuesday news release says Chesney has established the “Spread the Love” fund with his own donation and will gift sales of his single by the same name as well. Donations will go to Boston Medical Center and other area facilities. Fans also can donate directly to the fund at http://bmc.org/Kenny.
The money will go to the purchase of prosthetics and fittings, follow-up care and physical therapy.
Three people were killed and more than 260 injured in the April 15 attack at the marathon finish line.
Chesney co-wrote “Spread the Love” with The Wailers. It appears on his new album Life on a Rock, out this week.
The music community has played a big part in fund-raising initiatives in support of the Boston bomb blasts’ victims. Neil Diamond recently announced he would donate royalties of his iconic hit “Sweet Caroline” to the One Fund Boston charity, while the Dropkick Murphys separately raised a six-figure sum for good causes.
