Carrie Underwood To Be A Part Of “Nashville Rising”
Tim McGraw and Faith Hill announced today that they will hold “Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert For Flood Recovery” on June 22 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
“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 firsthand, as volunteers, church groups and our local business leaders rally to help. 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 22 a truly special night,” McGraw and Hill said in a statement.
Confirmed performers include: Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Miley Cyrus, Amy Grant, Faith Hill, Miranda Lambert, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Martina McBride, Tim McGraw, LeAnn Rimes, Michael W. Smith and Taylor Swift

“NASHVILLE RISING” will benefit the Community Foundation, 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 http://www.cfmt.org.
Additional performers and special guests will be announced soon.
