Jason Aldean, George Strait + More Play Country Rising Fundraiser [Pictures]

Ten of country music’s biggest stars are urging fans to continue to donate to causes supported by the Country Rising concert in Nashville on Sunday night (Nov. 12). Reba McEntire, Chris Stapleton and Sam Hunt were three headliners that gave their time to support victims of a handful of tragedies.

The Country Rising all-star concert was born in response to double hurricanes (Harvey and Irma), but additional hurricanes and the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas forced organizers to expand the scope. Officially the Country Rising Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee supports victims of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria, and victims of the shooting in Las Vegas.

Donations are still being accepted by texting NASHVILLE to 41010 or a $10 donation, or at the Country Rising website.

Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, George Strait, Little Big Town, Dierks Bentley and Martina McBride also performed at the Country Rising concert at Bridgestone Arena. Each played several original songs and shared personal thoughts and memories from areas affected by the natural disasters or tragedies.

Carrie Underwood‘s planned appearance was canceled when the singer fell at home on Friday night. She suffered a broken wrist and other cuts and abrasions, but the WE Fest 2018 headliner later assured fans she’ll be alright.

These Singers Prove Traditional Country Is Alive and Well!
