Tim McGraw and Faith Hill announce benefit concert for flood recovery

On Tuesday, June 22, the Music City community will unite to assist victims of the floods that ravaged Nashville and Middle Tennessee earlier this month. “NASHVILLE RISING: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery,” will take place at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. It will feature performances by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, who are spearheading the event, and numerous other artists. Artists confirmed to perform include: Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Amy Grant, Faith Hill, Miranda Lambert, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Martina McBride, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood. This superstar line-up will continue to grow and many additions will be announced as the event draws closer.

"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 first hand, as volunteers, church groups and our local business leaders rally to help,” said Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. “We all need to continue to support those in need in anyway 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."

Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Friday, May 14th, at 10 a.m. at www.ticketmaster.com . Ticket prices will range from $25 to $75. Ticket auctions on select seats and VIP packages will also be available. Visit www.nashvillerising.org for more details.

I guess they realized that everyone else is still trying to raise money for Haiti instead of our own countries disaster. I just seen another commercial for Haiti relief last night! Where is the plea for helping Nashville?!?!
