Chesney to donate concert fees to tornado relief
Question of the Day
NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Country superstar Kenny Chesney is turning his May 25th tour stop in Tuscaloosa, Ala., into a benefit concert.
Chesney, along with his management and booking agents, are donating all of their fees to the tornado-ravaged town that is home to the University of Alabama.
The massive storm system that swept through the South two weeks ago killed more than 300 people in seven states. At least 41 were in Tuscaloosa. The April 27 tornado outbreak destroyed entire neighborhoods and left the city struggling to recover.
Chesney considered postponing the concert, but the mayor convinced him that the show would be a positive step forward for the community.
The funds will go to GiveTuscaloosa.com and will be funneled to local charities and social services.
