Reese Witherspoon Duets With Kenny Chesney

Singing Johnny and June Carter Cash songs earned Reese Witherspoon an Oscar, so it's no big shock that she'd want to relive the experience. Luckily, country crooner (and the former Mr. Renée Zellweger) Kenny Chesney was happy to accommodate the star — in the name of charity, of course.
Witherspoon first sang the classic tune "Jackson" with Joaquin Phoenix in the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic, Walk the Line. Clearly, she's still a big fan, as she paid $24,000 for the privilege of getting her country strong on during a star-studded benefit at the House of Blues in New Orleans on Saturday night. That money will benefit Drew Brees’ charity, The Brees Dream Foundation, and the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation, founded by the evening's host, Matthew McConaughey.
Witherspoon, who later tweeted a photo of the duet, let her twang loose as she hit the stage in a chic white lace gown. Chesney, meanwhile, was less Man In Black and more Man With A Backwards Cap.
As the below video shows, a few Hurricanes may have been imbibed pre-performance. Let he who has not done drunken karaoke cast the first stone. (Just Jared)
