Kenny Chesney Reflects on Tuscaloosa Tornado Relief Show, Performs on 'Today' (VIDEO)

Ann Curry, Kenny Chesney, and Grace Potter on 'Today'When tornadoes ravaged the Tuscaloosa area last month, Kenny Chesney had a choice - reschedule the May 25 Tuscaloosa stop on his Goin' Coastal Tour, or go ahead and play the show as planned. It was a difficult decision, he told Ann Curry Friday on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), but he played the show and donated the proceeds to tornado relief.

Chesney was torn at the time - he wasn't sure if it would be more rude to play the show or not play the show. "The mayor just told us that these people need something to look forward to," he said. "I'm a total believer that music is the biggest healer ever. That's why we decided to go play, and it was one of the best nights of our tour so far."

Chesney then performed his song 'You & Tequilla,' a duet with Grace Potter, from his apparently alcohol-themed album, 'Hemingway's Whiskey.'
