Country superstar and known do-gooder Alan Jackson couldn’t pass through Colorado last week without raising some money for victims of the state’s wildfires. On the morning of Thursday, June 28, the singer released a group of front row reserved tickets for his show that night at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, selling the seats for a premium and raising thousands of dollars for the Denver Foundation, the state’s oldest community foundation, Country Music Is Love reports.

“It’s just the saddest thing,” Alan said from the stage. “I’m just heart broke about all the fires out here.”

“We really appreciate all the great people that have been helping them out here,” he added. “They sold some of the seats down here on a special deal to try and raise some money to help fight that battle — whoever bought those, that was mighty nice of y’all and I really appreciate it.”

All proceeds went to the Denver Foundation and will benefit the Colorado Wildfire Relief Fund, which was created by the state’s governor.

Additional donations can be made by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS or visiting the website of the American Red Cross.
