BNA star KENNY CHESNEY performed on SATURDAY night (5/12) at the HOUSE OF BLUES in NEW ORLEANS for the 3rd Annual “AMAZING RACE” charity event. The race is a signature event of the BREES DREAM FOUNDATION, which was founded by NEW ORLEANS SAINTS quarterback DREW BREES and his wife BRITNEY. This year, the event partnered with the JUST KEEP LIVIN FOUNDATION, founded by actor MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY and his fiancée CAMILA ALVES.
CHESNEY said, “We’ve been in tour rehearsals for weeks now so it was great for us to get on stage and feel the energy and feedback from the crowd. Tonight was all about playing music to help celebrate this great event. People in this town love music and helping out their neighbor and I was glad to be a part of it.”
An auction item allowing the highest bidder to sing on stage with KENNY raised $10,000. The two sang “Somewhere With You.” The night ended with BREES and McCONAUGHEY performing “Boys of Fall” with CHESNEY on stage.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the charities as well as go towards providing care, education and opportunities for children and families in LOUISIANA and the GULF COAST.
