We’re pulling for our labels, artists and friends who have been impacted by massive rains and resulting floods in the midwestern U.S., including one of America’s music hubs, Nashville, Tennessee.
The weekend floods forced changes in Bentley’s tour. Fans were notified of cancelled shows over the weekend and refunded tickets. “For the safety of my band, crew and their families back here in Nashville, we are parking the buses and not going to try and attempt the trip east to Knoxville and Charlottesville,” Bentley says. “I hope to reschedule both dates soon.”
Meanwhile the American Red Cross is setting up shelters and has established a mobile giving campaign for the region. Those who wish to donate $10 via a text donation to help people affected can do so via participating wireless carriers by texting “REDCROSS” to 90999 . Funds will go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. More details are available here.
