McGraw, Hill Plan Huge Flood Relief Concert

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are spearheading a superstar flood relief concert set for Tuesday, June 22 at the Bridgestone Arena. They’ve already recruited Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Amy Grant, Miranda Lambert, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Martina McBride, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith, Taylor Swift, and Carrie Underwood for performances, as well as special guests Titans coach Jeff Fisher and Predators coach Barry Trotz.

Proceeds from “NASHVILLE RISING: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery,” will go to the Community Foundation, which provides philanthropic services that enhance the Middle Tennessee area. The event will be presented by AEG Live/The Messina Group, Live Nation and Outback Concerts.

“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 McGraw and Hill in a joint statement. “We all need to continue to support those in need in anyway 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 range from $25-$75 and go on sale Fri., May 14 at 10 AM/CT via Ticketmaster. The line-up will continue to grow as the event draws closer. Ticket auctions on select seats and VIP packages will also be available. Visit www.nashvillerising.org for more details.
