Actor and His Wife Spend the Weekend in New Orleans

The stars were out in New Orleans over the weekend.

On Friday night (April 7), Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey showed up for the opening night of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul World Tour at the Smoothie King Center. The actor’s wife Camila Alves posted a backstage photo of the group, which also included New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wife Brittany Brees.

Then on Saturday, McConaughey and Alves hit the House of Blues in the New Orleans French Quarter, where Chesney was performing a benefit show for the American Race, a joint fundraising effort of the Brees Dream Foundation and McConaughey’s Just Keep Livin’ Foundation.
