Kenny Chesney honors late dog Ruby with new song


Kenny Chesney is honoring his late dog Ruby, in his latest song, one that he hopes will benefit “every dog in the world.”

On Friday, Chesney, 54, released his latest single, “Da Ruba Girl,” a tribute to his dog Ruby, who died on Dec. 4. The song had regular play on  Chesney’s No Shoes Radio channel on SiriusXM, and proceeds from the song will go toward Stray Rescue of St. Louis.

“I wrote ‘Da Ruba Girl’ about Ruby, because she was this spirit who had so many different pieces to who she was,” Chesney told People. “It was a fun song, and I’d recorded it, but never included it on an album. Instead, we’d play it on No Shoes Radio, where it became a fan favorite. People loved the song, I think, because they all knew a dog who had the same kind of spirit or heart, you know, the kind who was an underdog, who wasn’t the obvious choice.”
