The full list of performers and special guests is below the cut.
Speaking on behalf of the concert fundraiser, Alabama’s lead singer Randy Owen released this statement:
“My hope is that this will bring happiness and help to my fellow citizens in Alabama. I believe it’s extremely important that we do this benefit, and I want everyone in the state to feel like they are part of it. I hope we all can pull together to help get through the worst natural disaster I’ve ever seen in Alabama. I appreciate my friends in country music, everyone that’s been involved, and anyone that’s helped in any way.”
