Where were you when the lights went out? Big Kenny hopes you'll be celebrating Earth Hour 2009 along with him.
The Big & Rich singer goes dark in a new PSA for Earth Hour 2009, an initiative sponsored by the World Wildlife Fund in support of action on climate change.
In the PSA, Big Kenny sings “Go Tell it on the Mountain,” adding “that Earth Hour is coming here” before he practices turning off his lights.
The singer is one of several country stars participating in the global effort – others include Jo Dee Messina, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Wynonna, Ashley Judd, Kathy Mattea, Vince Gill and Amy Grant – in which an estimated 2,400 cities in 82 countries will turn off their lights for one hour at 8:30 p.m. local time on Saturday, March 28.
Nashville is a flagship city for Earth Hour, along with Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Las Vegas, Atlanta, New York, Washington D.C. and San Francisco, which will all be hosting special events.
