Kenny Chesney Writes Song About Alzheimer's


A song about Alzheimer's disease will appear on Kenny Chesney's new record Welcome to the Fishbowl. Chesney explained to Billboard magazine that while the song, titled "While He Still Knows Who I Am," is, in fact, about the debilitating disease, it also has another layer.

"[The song's] got so much more than that," Chesney says. "This guy's going back to reconnect with his father, but in a sense he's trying to connect with himself, too. He's busy and he's getting lost in the world, and that was me to a T, really."

Chesney says that the song had a particular significance for his latest LP because it set a deeper tone for the rest of the record.

"This was the first song I recorded, and how this whole thread started on this record," he adds.

Chesney's 13th record, Welcome to the Fishbowl is due out June 19 on Sony Music Nashville imprint BNA.
