Kenny Chesney Asks No Shoes Nation to Pray for Hurricane Irma Victims

By Robyn Collins

Kenny Chesney is asking his fans to pray for everyone in the path of Hurricane Irma, which has already claimed nine lives and left hundreds of thousands without power.

Wednesday night, the category 5 hurricane devastated Barbuda, St. Martin and the British Virgin Islands with rain and 180 mph winds.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne of Antigua and Barbuda says Barbuda has been left barely inhabitable, with 95 percent its buildings damaged, according to CNN. Browne says that the cost of rebuilding could be around $100 million.

It is still unclear if the hurricane will make direct landfall in the United States, but reports show that it could happen by late Sunday (Sept. 10).
