George Strait, Willie Nelson, Miranda Lambert, Kacey Musgraves and more are set to perform at the virtual ‘We’re Texas’ benefit concert on Sunday, March 21.
The benefit concert is organized by Texas native Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves McConaughey, along with Just Keep Livin Foundation Texas Relief Fund, to help those eaffected by Winter Storm Uri.
The benefit concert can be streamed on McConaughey’s YouTube channel as well as Spectrum1 for Texas residents on Sunday, March 31 at 7 p.m. CT. Other performers signed on for the benefit include Post Malone, Don Henley, Gary Clark Jr., Parker McCollum, Clint Black, Kelly Clarkson, Khalid, Leon Bridges, Randy Rogers and more.
“A lot of Texans are hurting right now,” says McConaughey. “After the disaster of the worst freeze here in over 70 years, so many are still without clean water, and unable to repair water damage that has made their homes unlivable. One of my favorite things about Texans is that we like to help ourselves, and while that spirit is still alive and well, a lot of Texans can’t help themselves right now unless we help them. The We’re Texas Virtual Event features an all-star lineup of Texas talent for a night to restore Texas. It’s time.”
In an effort to help, the organization has been providing support for those lacking basic necessities, trying to recover and rebuild in the Lone Star state. While power has been restored for most, broken water lines and other damage have left many Texans without access to food, clean water and other critical resources. The proceeds from the We’re Texas Benefit concert will be distributed by the Just Keep Livin Foundation Texas Relief Fund to a variety of non-profit organizations including:
- Austin Disaster Relief Network (ADRN)
- Meals on Wheels Central Texas (MOWCTX)
- Salvation Army of Texas
- Save the Children
- Bernard Project (SBP)
- Texas Rubicon
