The country singer-songwriter honors his beloved pet in a memorial song

ST. LOUIS — Kenny Chesney will release “Da Ruba Girl,” a song dedicated to his rescue dog, Ruby, on Friday, December 9th. Stray Rescue of St.Louis will receive 100% of the proceeds from the song “Da Ruba Girl”. Anyone who has followed Kenny Chesney on social media over the past few days is well aware of the death of his beloved rescue dog, Ruby.

He wrote that the red and white mix “lived their lives without blaming anyone. She had an old, soothing soul. She was honest and authentic, she was a protector… Ruby loved the sun and how it felt on her face. She and I had this in common… I will miss her, especially in the mornings. That’s where she and I really bonded. So bye Ruby. You were a very good girl. We loved you and thank you for teaching us how to love unconditionally. You were a dog from heaven.”

The East Tennessee songwriter ended the news with a line from “Da Ruba Girl,” a No Shoes Nation favorite often aired on Chesney’s SiriusXM channel No Shoes Radio. After years of demands, the singer, who is known for his introspective songs about the islands and coastal life as well as his high-energy performances at the stadium, has decided to memorialize Ruby – and help one of the largest pit bull rescue homes in the country – by… makes the song accessible in her memory.

“No one had a bigger, bolder heart than Da Ruba Girl, whose name was Ruby,” explains Chesney. “She was a lifesaver my friend Mary brought into our lives and she was the most loving, gentle soul. That’s why she inspired the song and how she really showed us better ways to be human. Her loss has left a hole beyond words.”

“And while she was a rescue, she really saved every single person that came in contact with her. To honor her life, I wanted that love and her ability to save people to continue. I wanted to do something that would embody what she was and that would also help people know that these dogs can save you.”

Chesney said honoring her in a song only made sense. “So after years of requests, it only made sense to release Ruby’s song and let ‘Da Ruba Girl’ pay for it by supporting the incredible folks at Stray Rescue of St. Louis who worked closely with us not only after the hurricanes have the Virgin Islands but also continue to help find homes for large dogs, senior dogs and especially pit bulls for which they are one of the largest shelters.”

Starting this Friday, December 9th, “Da Ruba Girl” will be available for purchase on iTunes and all streaming platforms, with pre-save and pre-add options.

All proceeds from the song will be donated to Stray Rescue of St. Louis. Additional donations can be made through their

“They say we’re saving them, but I know from experience that it’s really us who are being saved,” says Chesney. “And I also know that some of the greatest angels in the world are the people who work in the shelters and heal these poor, abandoned, often abused babies. Ruby was all the best and she remembers this as her way of continuing to give and bring love where it is needed most.” The country singer-songwriter honors his beloved pet in a memorial song
