CMT’s ‘One Country’ will broadcast a live, 90-minute concert special, Thursday, May 12 at 9:00 PM (ET). The concert event is in response to the destructive tornadoes that tore through multiple southern U.S. states last week. Hank Williams Jr., Alabama, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Sara Evans and Ronnie Dunn have all signed on to raise awareness and donations for families devastated by the deadly natural disasters.

“I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing on TV,” says Hank Jr., who personally reached out to CMT and expressed an urgent need to address the disaster. “Alabama is home — I am really pumped about helping. I want to raise lot of money, and thanks to my good friends, we are going to be able to make a difference.”

Tuscaloosa, Alabama suffered the brunt of the storms, with countless homes and businesses destroyed, and hundreds of lives lost. Officials have calculated the Alabama death toll at more than 200, with an overall count of 328. All proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts.

The special will broadcast live from Nashville and will be available for streaming at Additional artists are expected to be announced in the coming days. Fans can also log on to CMTOneCountry to learn more about the network’s pro-social initiative.
