Rodney Atkins Charity Concert Will Benefit Oklahoma Tornado Victims
Rodney Atkins' third annual Music City Gives Back concert will benefit victims of the deadly tornado that touched down in Moore, Okla. on May 20. The concert takes place in Nashville on Tuesday (June 4) and features appearances by some of Atkins' country music friends.
"Each year I gather some of my friends together to put on this show and have fun with our fans before CMA Music Fest, but the reason we get up here is to help the community come together to give our support to those in need," Atkins says (quote via Taste of Country). This year's lineup includes Justin Moore, Jana Kramer and Josh Thompson.
"With the recent disaster in Moore, I knew that's where we had to focus our efforts this year," Atkins states. "I'm looking forward to the big night with Justin, Jana and Josh -- we're going to rock!"
The singer, whose hits include 'Watching You,' 'If You're Going Through Hell' and 'Take a Back Road,' is asking fans to donate on site at the event, which is free to the public. In addition to money, fans are encouraged to make a donation of duct tape, work gloves, flashlights and other items useful to those who have been displaced by the disaster.
The third annual Music City Gives Back concert takes place in Nashville on Tuesday, June 4 in Nashville on Broadway at Fifth Ave. The event starts at 6PM.
