Vince Gill Hosts Flood Relief Telethon
Vince Gill has teamed up with Nashville's NBC affiliate station, WSMV, to host a flood relief telethon tonight (May 6). The notoriously charitable star has recruited an impressive list of friends to perform on the live broadcast, including Keith Urban, Alison Krauss, Naomi Judd, Darius Rucker, Phil Vassar, Lee Roy Parnell, Lonestar, Buddy Jewell and Bo Bice.
All proceeds from the telethon will benefit the Salvation Army, Red Cross and Second Harvest Food Bank. Thousands of middle Tennessee residents are in dire need of food, shelter and financial assistance as a result of devastating floods that ravaged the area earlier this week. With more than 15 inches of rain over a 48 hour period, the Nashville area experienced its worst flooding since the early '70s.
'Working 4 You: Flood Relief with Vince Gill & Friends' airs from 7:00 - 10:00 PM CT tonight on Channel 4 in the middle Tennessee area. For those unable to tune in on TV, you can watch it live online at WSMV.com.
