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. It will feature performances by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, who are spearheading the event, and numerous other artists including Luke.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, May 14th, at 10:00 A.M. CST at ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices will range from $25 to $75. Ticket auctions on select seats and VIP packages will also be available.

“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 cfmt.org.
