“Country Rising”: Country Stars’ Hurricane Benefit Concert

Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, George Strait, Reba McEntire, Chris Stapleton, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Martina McBride, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum and Little Big Town—these are just some of the biggest and brightest country artists who signed to perform for the upcoming benefit concert, Country Rising.

Scheduled to take place on November 12, at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, the concert was created to help collect funds for hurricane relief efforts. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria have all left several people displaced, homeless, and struggling to rebuild their lives from the shattering aftermath.

All those affected by the recent devastating storms, specifically those in Florida, Texas, the Caribbean islands, and Puerto Rico will benefit from all allocated donations and profits. The funds will also be donated to the Country Rising Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.

Additional artists who will be joining the huge line-up of musicians will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets and VIP packages for Country Rising will be available and on sale starting October 6, Friday, 10 a.m. CT.

This is not the first time that country singers and fellow artists from different music genres have come together to perform at a charity event for the victims of the last hurricanes. Earlier, George Strait and Chris Stapleton have both joined the Hand in Hand benefit show in San Antonio last September 12. Tidal has also arranged to have their own benefit gig on the 17th of October. Aside from hurricane victims, the concert’s proceeds will also help those affected by the recent 7.1 magnitude earthquake the hit Mexico. Additionally, Lady Antebellum priorly donated a total of $200, 000, along with merch proceeds from their show in Dallas during the onslaught of Hurricane Harvey.

While natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes are inevitable and cause massive destruction, the aftermath leads people to unite and forget each other’s differences for the sake of bringing new hope for everybody.
