During Chris Janson‘s performance at the Peck Fest in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, he announced from stage that every dollar raised at the merch table would stay in West Virginia to help those affected by flooding that hit the region less than a month ago. “It’s the right thing to do,” said Janson. “I’ve played many nights here in West Virginia and the people have always treated me and my family so nice. It’s like a second home to me.”
