Kenny Chesney is scheduled for a May 25 show in tornado-ravaged Tuscaloosa, Ala., and he and his camp have announced the show will go on. Not only that, but he and his crew will donate all proceeds to storm victims, through givetuscaloosa.com.

The mayor of Tuscaloosa is thrilled.

“As we respond to one of the worst natural disasters in our state’s history, we refuse to let April 27th define our future and hosting Kenny Chesney is another step forward to a new tomorrow,” the mayor, Walt Maddox, said in a statement. “On behalf of the City of Tuscaloosa, I want to thank Kenny and his team for their generosity and compassion. It is the kindness of others that will carry us through as we rebuild Tuscaloosa.”

Says Kenny: “Mayor Maddox convinced us that this is a great opportunity to bring the people of Tuscaloosa together in a positive way, and we are grateful for the opportunity to help them in this way.”
