hurricanes. The star-studded lineup at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on

Nashville music community has also stepped on board, with AEG and Live
Nation teaming up as the official show promoters working alongside
organizer Red Light Management, Bridgestone Arena and the Nashville
Predators. COUNTRY RISING will benefit The Country Rising Fund of The
Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, which was established to
support charitable initiatives to help victims of the September 2017
hurricanes — Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria. In the course of
rebuilding lives disrupted by these devastating storms, there are
immediate needs and there also will be long-term needs. This fund will
strategically support both as they emerge.
