Country Rising is just one of a number of initiatives from within the country music community to help those affected by 2017's devastating hurricanes. Lady Antebellum recently donated $200,000 to relief efforts (after donating merch proceeds from a show in Dallas around the time of Hurricane Harvey), while Strait organized a benefit show in San Antonio.
