LATEST: Kenny Chesney has stepped in to represent country music at this
weekend's (15JAN05) Tsunami Telethon after Tim Mcgraw was forced to scrap his
plans to perform.
McGraw was named among those planning to perform in the live televised
benefit but scheduling problems forced him to turn down the chance to join
Christina Aguilera and Sheryl Crow.
Chesney admits he's delighted he can help the tsunami victims in south
east Asia: "You watch this stuff on TV and you look at the pictures in the
paper... and you can't even imagine how those families must feel.
"Truly, it is beyond comprehension. So when the people putting this show
together called to ask, I didn't even have to think about it. I was like,
'Where do you need me to be?'"
The one-hour programme will also feature Courteney Cox and George Clooney.
