Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert For Flood Recovery


“NASHVILLE RISING: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery,” will take place at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on June 22, 2010. This event is bringing the Music City Community together to assist victims from the floods that took place in Nashville and Middle Tennessee at the beginning of this month. Tim McGraw & Faith Hill are heading up this event and several other artists will join as well between now and then.

“The damage that we’ve seen to people’s homes and the effect that the flooding has had on their lives is unimaginable. But we’ve seen the spirit of our community first hand, as volunteers, church groups and our local business leaders rally to help,” said Tim and Faith in a statement. “We all need to continue to support those in need in any way that we can, and for that reason we could not be more appreciative to all of the artists, the companies and the people behind the scenes who collectively will make June 22nd a truly special night.”

Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, May 14th, at 10:00 A.M. CST at www.ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices will range from $25 to $75. Ticket auctions on select seats and VIP packages will also be available. For more information, please visit www.nashvillerising.org

“NASHVILLE RISING” will benefit the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, which provides philanthropic services that enhance the Middle Tennessee area. The Foundation’s Tennessee Emergency Response Fund ensures that one gift can impact the widest range of charitable needs. In the course of rebuilding lives disrupted by this devastating flood, it is impossible to know just what the needs of those affected will be. This Fund is already operational and will continue to strategically address needs as they emerge. For additional information, please visit www.cfmt.org.

Scheduled to perform at this time are: Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Amy Grant, Leann Rimes, Michael W. Smith and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
