After the devastating shootings in Chattanooga, Tenn., last Thursday (July 16), Brantley Gilbert is stepping up to give the grieving town and its families something to hold onto: a benefit concert.

Gilbert surprised Chattanooga radio station WUSY with a phone call on Monday (July 20), admitting that when he heard about the five service members who were killed, "I had tears in my eyes."

"It pissed me off, but at the same time, I want do everything I can just to see if I can reach out and help these families a little bit, add my condolences to the families and all the people in Chattanooga," Gilbert continued, and then announced, "We want to do a full-blown concert."

Amid cheers that came from the station's staff, Gilbert explained, "I think we can do something special. We can’t ever give ‘em back [their loved ones], but maybe we can give ‘em a little something."

A date and venue for the concert will be announced soon, the radio station says on its website.

The shootings, allegedly carried out by Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, took place at a military recruiting center and a Navy-Marine training center. Country newcomer Kelsea Ballerini made sure to send her love to Chattanooga by performing "Amazing Grace" in a tribute to the victims and their families during a Fox & Friends performance on Friday (July 17).
