This weekend Kenny Chesney performed at the “Amazing Race” charity event in New Orleans for the Drew Brees’ and Matthew McConaughey’s foundations:

The race is a signature event of the Brees Dream Foundation, which was founded by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and wife Brittany. This year, the event partnered with the Just Keep Livin Foundation, founded by Matthew McConaughey and fiancée Camila Alves.

Of the show 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.”

The intimate setting of the House of Blues allowed for some very special moments. A one of kind auction item allowing the highest bidder to sing on stage with Kenny raised $10,000. The two sang his # 1 hit, “Somewhere With You.” The night ended with Drew Brees and Matthew McConaughey uniting with Chesney on stage for an encore performance of Chesney’s gridiron anthem, “Boys of Fall.” “Kenny has been a dear friend and always expressed interest in working with the foundation. This is such a wonderful way to end the race and his support means the world to us,” said Brees and McConaughey.

On Thursday Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw rehearsed together for the first time in preparation for their upcoming Brothers of the Sun Tour.

“Yesterday’s rehearsal with Tim and I and our bands was as electric and exciting as we anticipated,” said Kenny, the man with nine summers of playing to crowds of more than one million a year. “It’s been a long time since we’ve played on stage together and the chemistry and excitement is just so natural. It’s going to be a dream come true to have our years of friendship come together on stage for what will be one unpredictable, loud, hell of a summer, and I can’t wait,” Kenny continued.

The 3+ hour working rehearsal found the friends working out songs for the tour, which kicks off June 2 in Tampa, FL.

Kenny Chesney has tapped one of the top guitarist in the industry to join him on this summer’s tour:

Joining Chesney’s touring band is Kenny Greenberg, the Academy of Country Music’s 2012 “Guitarist of the Year” and a veteran Nashville session musician who has previously collaborated with Bob Seger, Willie Nelson, and Etta James.

After moving to Nashville at age 21, Greenberg began writing, producing, and recording for artists in a wide range of genres, including folk, gospel, pop, and country. Between producing several GRAMMY-winning and Oscar-nominated songs, Greenberg has frequently collaborated with Chesney, including on his upcoming album, ‘Welcome To The Fishbowl’ (June 19, BNA Records) and 2010′s ‘Hemingway’s Whiskey’ (BNA Records).

“Kenny is one of the best guitarists out there today, period,” Chesney said. “He’s been a great friend and collaborator over the years, right through ‘Welcome To The Fishbowl,’ and it’s going to be amazing to have him at the party each night this summer.”

McGraw Reminisces About Early Days in Nashville with Chesney

American Songwriter has an interesting interview with Tim McGraw where he mentions that he didn’t see Kenny as an artist in those early days in Nashville:

Tim recalls writing songs with Kenny and Tracy Lawrence during his early days in Nashville. While Tim was pursuing a recording contract, he says buddy Kenny’s focus was on penning songs for other artists.

“Yeah, we wrote. I don’t remember any of it but we wrote,” Tim says. “I was actually performing some of the songs Kenny was writing. Back then, Kenny, Tracy and I would run around together and I never thought of Kenny wanting to be an artist. I don’t think he ever said much about wanting that. I think he was concentrating on songwriting back then. And he’s a really good songwriter, by the way.”

Though Tim tends to rely on top-notch Nashville songwriters for his hit songs, he says there are still shelved songs out there with his co-writing credit on them.
