Country superstar Kenny Chesney paid tribute to the strength of Alabama residents during a concert on Wednesday (25May11) for victims of America's tornado disasters.
Storms have ripped through the southern states of America in recent weeks and at the end of April (11), more than 200 people were killed in Alabama.
The city of Tuscaloosa was worst hit, with 45 residents losing their lives, and Chesney staged a benefit show there on Wednesday to raise money for aid efforts.
During the gig he sang My Home's In Alabama for the crowd and was joined by singer-songwriter Mac McAnally for renditions of Back Where I Come From and Down the Road, according to
Chesney says, "I'm so honoured to have played Tuscaloosa... This town has always been incredible to me, and they are really hurting now.
"I didn't know if we were doing the right thing by doing the show, but after tonight, I am convinced that this town needed something to look forward to, and I am so glad we played tonight."
