The 1st Annual Disaster Relief Concert benefiting tornado and flood victims across Middle Tennessee is set to take place on Sunday, Aug. 29, 2021 from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Hop Springs Murfreesboro. Country recording artist Craig Campbell will headline the event, while CJ Solar, Presley & Taylor, Mark McKay, and Liam Coleman are also scheduled to perform. Comedian Reno Collier will be the guest host and MC throughout the day.
The concert will benefit Inspiritus Disaster Relief efforts in Middle Tennessee. Inspiritus provides long term recovery assistance for families and individuals who have unmet needs following a natural disaster, including assessing people’s comprehensive needs after a storm and ensuring those needs are met. They also provide free debris removal, home repair, and home rebuild construction management when home owners are unable to financially recover on their own.
“Many households in Middle Tennessee have had a hard year, working to recover from the tornado or the floods, while navigating COVID-19 health and economic disasters, too. Inspiritus staff and volunteers are committed to providing home repair assistance to ensure these families are able to go from surviving to thriving again,” says Virginia Spencer from Inspiritus. “We appreciate Hop Springs for hosting this event and these great artists for providing wonderful entertainment for a great cause. This event will provide hope to many families who are still recovering from the tornado and the floods.”
Patrons are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and a picnic meal to enjoy the concert. No outside alcoholic beverages are permitted, but food trucks, additional beverages, and beer will be available for purchase.
Donations for disaster relief will be accepted at the event to provide support to homeowners who have been unable to recover from the 2020 tornado and the 2021 floods. Tickets begin at $10 and are available for purchase here.
