Kenny Chesney played a special benefit concert over the weekend in Florida to raise awareness for the Everglades.

Kenny was invited to participate by his friend and Everglades Foundation board member, Jimmy Buffett.

Kenny says, "I was honored that Jimmy asked me to be a part of the Everglades Foundation Benefit. Restoring and protecting future damage to the Everglades is very important to me." Read more after the jump.
