Faith Hill and Tim McGraw to Host Nashville Benefit Concert

by at . Comments

When it comes to their devastated hometown, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are taking action.

The country music standouts have organized "Nashville Rising: A Benefit Concert For Flood Recovery," which aims to help those affected by last month's record-breaking storms. It will take place on June 22, six days after Ke$ha's charity event.

"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," McGraw and Hill said in a statement.

"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."

The lineup so far includes the hosts, along with Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift (who has personally donated $500,000 to the cause), Miley Cyrus, Brooks & Dunn, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and LeAnn Rimes.

Severe storms and extensive flooding from two weeks ago have left almost two dozen people dead in Tennessee, while numerous Nashville homes and landmarks have been destroyed.
