More country artists and songwriters are teaming up to help those impacted by the devastating flood in Middle Tennessee last month, which claimed the lives of more than 20 people. Jake Owen, Rory Feek, Lee Greenwood, Paul Overstreet, John Berry, Wendell Mobley, Jeffrey Steele and more, are joining their talents for one unforgettable night on September 9, with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to flood victims.
Overstreet, whose numerous credits include Randy Travis‘ “Forever and Ever, Amen,” Kenny Chesney‘s “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy” and “When You Say Nothing at All” by Keith Whitley, is organizing the event, and will serve as the evening’s host. The event is being held at Stevens’ CabaRay venue in downtown Nashville.
Loretta Lynn also recently announced her own flood relief concert, “Loretta Lynn’s Friends: Hometown Rising, featuring Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Luke Bryan and Luke Combs. More artists are expected to be announced shortly for the show, which will take place on September 13 at the Grand Ole Opry.
“I am so honored that so many of our friends are coming together to show so much love for our neighbors and community after such a devastating loss,” Lynn says. “You know, we’ve all needed help from time-to-time, and that’s why when we can give back, we do.”
The flood, which dumped more than 17 inches of rain in Humphreys County, claimed the life of Spears’ ranch foreman, Wayne Spears.
The concert at Stevens’ CabaRay will begin at 6:00 PM, and run until 11:00 PM. Surprise guests will also appear, and food trucks will be available outside the venue. Parking is free. Tickets can be found here, or by calling 615-327-4630.
