Tim McGraw and Faith Hill to Organize a Flood Benefit
Country music couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are gathering the biggest names in country music for a special concert June 22 to help those affected by Nashville's devastating floods.
"The damage that we've seen to people's homes and the effect that the flooding has had on their lives is unimaginable. But we've seen the spirit of our community firsthand, as volunteers, church groups and our local business leaders rally to help," McGraw and Hill said in a statement.
"We all need to continue to support those in need in any way that we can, and for that reason we could not be more appreciative to all of the artists, the companies and the people behind the scenes who collectively will make June 22 a truly special night."
"Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery," will be held at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena and will include performances by Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Brooks & Dunn, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, LeAnn Rimes and others. Swift recently donated $500,000 to the relief effort.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 14. More information is available at NashvilleRising.org.
