Tim McGraw and Faith Hill to host a benefit for Music City

The Music City community on June 22 will unite to assist victims of the floods that ravaged Nashville and Middle Tennessee earlier this month. “Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert for Flood Recovery,” will take place at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. It will feature performances by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, who are spearheading the event, and numerous other artists, including Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood.

Jeff Fisher, head coach of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, and Barry Trotz, head coach of the NHL’s Nashville Predators, will also be in attendance. 

“Nashville Rising” will benefit the Community Foundation, which provides philanthropic services that enhance the Middle Tennessee area.

“The damage that we’ve seen to people’s homes and the effect that the flooding has had on their lives is unimaginable,” said Tim McGraw and Faith Hill together in a release. “But we’ve seen the spirit of our community first hand, as volunteers, church groups and our local business leaders rally to help. 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 will go on sale to the general public this Friday, May 14, at 10 a.m. CST at www.ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices will range from $25 to $75. Ticket auctions on select seats and VIP packages will also be available. Visit www.nashvillerising.org for more details.
