Last week, Hurricane Irma tore through Kenny Chesney's home away from home, the Virgin Islands.

He has long had a home on the island of St. John, and while Kenny wasn't there to experience the devastating storm, his house was put to good use. He chatted about what happened during a recent interview, revealing that 20 of his closest island friends and their dogs took refuge inside his vacation home during the storm.

Although Kenny assumed his home would be a safe place for his friends, it turns out the house is "just simply gone" now. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the process.

Now, Kenny has set up a fund to raise money for the Virgin Islands, calling it the "Love for Love City Foundation."
