McConaughey proceeded to perform two more songs, singing “Setting The World On Fire” and “American Kids.” While everyone knew that Chesney had singing chops, it came as a surprise to many that McConaughey can sing as well!

The chemistry between McConaughey and Chesney is evident in the video of their performances, as it’s clear that the two of them have been friends for many years.

Charity Event Raises $8 Million

This charity event was a massive success, raising $8 million for the Dell’s Children Medical Center of Central Texas, just keep livin Foundation, CureDuchenne, The Rise School of Austin, and HeartGift. The event had various big-name sponsors that included Nike, Neiman Marcus, and Spotify.

While Chesney was the headline act this year, past headliners for the event have been the likes of The Chicks, Miranda Lambert, and Chris Stapleton. It was certainly kind for Chesney to take the time to do this, given the fact that he is currently busy traveling around the country on his Here and Now Tour.

Camila Alves Celebrates

McConaughey’s wife Camila Alves took to Instagram to celebrate ten years of this event raising money for those in need.

“10 YEARS!” Alves, 40, wrote on Instagram, captioning a photo of her and McConaughey as they posed in color-coordinated ensembles at the event. “We celebrated this past weekend of @mackjackmcconaughey empowering kids from heart transplants to after school programs AND many things in between all for kids!

“The goal is to raise as much as possible for kids while having a lot of fun!!” she added. “The wives united our power and all together the event is a 2 and half day deal… from music to golf to fashion!!”

In a world where celebrities often seem more self-centered than ever, it’s refreshing to see stars like McConaughey and Chesney who are willing to go all out to give back. If only we had more celebrities in the world like them!
