Florida Georgia Line’s FGL House Hosts Hurricane Harvey Fundraiser
In celebration of the premiere of Florida Georgia Line‘s Crossroads episode with the Backstreet Boys, the duo’s Nashville venue, FGL House, is hosting a viewing party-turned-Hurricane Harvey fundraiser. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Red Cross.
Beginning at 7PM CT on Wednesday (Aug. 30), fans can head to FGL House, located at 120 Third Ave. South in Nashville. FGL and BSB’s Crossroads episode, which premieres at 9PM CT, will be shown on screens throughout the venue, and Red Cross representatives will be on hand to collect donations. Fans who donate at least $25 will be invited to a VIP Viewing Party in FGL House’s basement lounge, Little Red Corvette. The VIP event will feature complimentary hors d’oeuvres and raffles; the first 50 people to enter will also receive a Florida Georgia Line tour T-shirt.
FGL House opened earlier this summer. Florida Georgia Line and the Backstreet Boys’ Crossroads episode will feature collaborations on Backstreet Boys songs including “I Want It That Way” and “As Long as You Love Me” and Florida Georgia Line’s song “H.O.L.Y.” (among others). Of course, they’ll also perform the song that began their work together: the No. 1-charting single “God, Your Mama and Me.”
In addition to Florida Georgia Line, a number of other country artists have stepped up to help with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts: Chris Young has set up a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money for those affected by the natural disaster, encouraging his fans to donate whatever they can to the fund, which will be given to the Red Cross and other local Texas disaster relief organizations, and giving $100,000 himself. Young says he also plans to get involved with other, larger fundraising campaigns. Miranda Lambert, meanwhile, with her MuttNation Foundation, headed to the affected parts of Texas to do whatever they can for the animals displaced by the storm, and George Strait has revealed that he is working on a major relief effort “with the whole country music community.”
Also helping Hurricane Harvey victims are Granger Smith, Luke Combs, Lady Antebellum and the Josh Abbott Band. Smith, a Dallas, Texas, native, is now donating 100 percent of profits from merchandise sales through his online store to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts; Lady A, too, donated merch proceeds, specifically from their Saturday night (Aug. 26) concert in Dallas, to hurricane-related charities. Combs, meanwhile, tweeted that he would be donating $10,000 to Samaritan’s Purse, “a non-denominational evangelical Christian” that’s sending five disaster relief teams to help Hurricane Harvey victims, and the Josh Abbott Band are selling a special T-shirt and donating the proceeds to “accredited organizations helping in disaster recovery.”
