Written by Warren Ellison on September 18, 2017
Luke Bryan announced that his September 22nd concert in Houston will open its doors to first responders that helped out during Hurricane Harvey. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Houston Community Fund, which will play an integral role in getting victims back on their feet. Bryan’s team is currently working with local authorities to offer the tickets to emergency medical professionals, law enforcement and other teams who helped those on the ground in the community when the storm hit. On Tuesday night, Bryan also participated in the “Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief” telethon, answering phone calls as part of a celebrity phone bank. Dozens of country stars appeared at the benefit, from Faith Hill to Trace Adkins. The night closed with an all-star ensemble – George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton, Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen – performing “If It Wasn’t for Texas” and “I Believe.” The telethon raised more than $14 million during the live broadcast, including matching donations from corporations.
