Country music artists have been working tirelessly to help in the recovery efforts following the tragic flood in Nashville last month, which resulted in the devastation of thousands of homes, and cost the city more than $1.5 billion. Vince Gill hosted a telethon that raised more than $1.7 million.
Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, James Otto, Martina McBride and Lady Antebellum were just a few of the artists who participated in GAC's telethon, raising more than $1.6 million. Darius Rucker and Kix Brooks each performed their own benefit concerts, while Dolly Parton, Reba McEntire, Taylor Swift, plus many more, made large donations to aid in recovery efforts.
Nashville Rising will be held on Tuesday, June 22 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The event is sold-out although a limited number of VIP packages are available. Click here for more information.
