Kenny Chesney Will Sing at Drew Brees, Matthew McConaughey Event

Kenny Chesney will perform at a private fundraiser on May 11 at House of Blues in New Orleans. The event, which features a race of 30 teams through the French Quarter, is sponsored by two charitable organizations: the Brees Dream Foundation (led by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and wife Brittany) and the JK Livin Foundation (headed by actor Matthew McConaughey and fiancée Camila Alves). The organizations have partnered to provide after-school fitness and wellness programs in the New Orleans area. “Kenny has been a dear friend and always expressed interest in working with the foundation,” Brees and McConaughey said in a written statement. “This is such a wonderful way to end the race and his support means the world to us.”
