Kenny Chesney has teamed up with the Music and Memory organization to help provide personal music players to patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

Kenny says in a PSA for the program, “The gift of a music player full of favorite songs can help reconnect people with Alzheimer’s to good memories and to the people around them, and that’s a ray of hope for a lot of people.”

According to testimonials on the Music and Memory website, Alzheimer’s patients who listen to their favorite music have shown improved mood and increased socialization.
