BNA/NASHVILLE star KENNY CHESNEY performed at a benefit for the EVERGLADES FOUNDATION on FRIDAY night (2/18) in PALM BEACH, FL. CHESNEY’s friend and FOUNDATION Board member JIMMY BUFFETT joined KENNY on stage to sing “Back Where I Come From” and one of BUFFETT’s signature songs, “Come Monday.” MAC McANALLY also joined CHESNEY for a performance of their duet, “Down The Road.”
CHESNEY said: “I was honored that JIMMY (BUFFETT) asked me to be a part of the EVERGLADES FOUNDATION BENEFIT. Restoring and protecting future damage to the EVERGLADES is very important to me. Hopefully this helped bring some attention to a very important cause.”
The EVERGLADES FOUNDATION is “dedicated to protecting and restoring one of the world’s unique natural ecosystems, providing economic, recreational and life-sustaining benefits to the millions of people who depend on its future health.” Previous EVERGLADE FOUNDATION BENEFIT performers include STING, GLORIA ESTEFAN, DIANA ROSS and JOHN MELLENCAMP.
