TIM & FAITH FRUSTRATED BY RELIEF EFFORTS

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are still frustrated by the relief efforts to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The couple appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Wednesday night, July 5, and gave a walking tour of one of New Orleans’ hardest hit areas. “I think the most frustrating part is when there’s so much red tape that has to be crossed before things get done,” Faith said on the program. Tim added, “All I know is, I wish things could move faster.” The two refrained from criticizing President Bush and other government officials about the relief efforts. Tim and Faith continue to provide help, donating the proceeds from their July 5 New Orleans concert to hurricane victims. That figure has been estimated at around one million dollars.

Fans can see more of Tim and Faith on Anderson Cooper 360 Friday night, July 7. Their July 5 segment was cut short due to developing world news, but the show will now be aired in its entirety. The heroes of Katrina’s aftermath will be the main focus.
