On Tuesday, June 22nd, the Music City community 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.

See below for a list of performers and special guests who have been confirmed to date. This superstar line-up will continue to grow and many additions will be announced as the event draws closer.

"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 first hand, as volunteers, church groups and our local business leaders rally to help,” said Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. “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 14th, at 10:00 A.M. CST at www.ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices will range from $25 to $75.

“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.
