Unless you’ve been locked away in GitMo for the past few weeks, you’re probably already know about the devastating flood that struck parts of Tennessee, Kentucky and Mississippi. Brought on by torrential rains resulting in rivers overflowing their banks, the flooding pretty much crippled Nashville, damaging or destroying private homes and businesses as well as music landmarks.
If you can’t make it to the June 22 benefit concert, you can still help those in need. All you need do is text RISING to 501501 and a $10 donation will be added to your mobile phone bill.
But texting won’t match the excitement of seeing Nashville’s biggest stars together on the same stage. Tickets are still available at each price level and there are still a few Diamond VIP packages which include seats within the first 13 rows.
“Nashville Rising: A Benefit concert For Flood Recovery” is presented by AEG Live / The Messina Group, Live Nation, Outback Concerts and The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee along with the Jackson national Life Insurance Company.
