Kenny Chesney is taking his love of the sand and surf in a new direction.

But he explains that by "bringing people who care together and creating projects that can have an impact," people can "start to slowly protect and build up this important natural resource.”

Another Song From Upcoming Johnny Cash Album Unveiled
Johnny Cash fans are getting another preview of the upcoming album "Out Among The Stars." Johnny teamed up with Waylon Jennings for a cover of the Hank Snow classic "I'm Movin' On," which is making its online debut on CMT.com.
"Out Among The Stars" features a collection of recordings Johnny made with producer Billy Sherrill in the early 1980s, when Cash was signed to Columbia Records. But the tracks were never released, and ended up locked in a vault and forgotten -- until John Carter Cash discovered them. He found the material in 2012 while going through some of his famous father's possessions, and enlisted Carlene Cash, Buddy Miller, and Marty Stuart to help him restore the recordings for release. The disc also features the song "She Used To Love Me A Lot," which was unveiled when the album was announced. "Out Among The Stars" will be in stores on March 25th.
