Alan Jackson is set to play a concert in his hometown of Newnan, Georgia, to benefit tornado relief efforts in the area.
The Where I Come From tornado benefit concert is scheduled to take place on June 26, three months after a tornado tore through Newnan, destroying at least 70 homes and damaging numerous others. The event will benefit Coweta Community Foundation, which is assisting with cleanup and rebuilding efforts.
“After the tornadoes came through Newnan, I knew that I wanted to do what I could to help my hometown. I started working on an idea to do some kind of benefit in Nashville to help those affected in Newnan, but then heard from a group of leaders in Newnan,” Jackson said. “I’m glad we came up with a way to bring this show to my hometown . and I’m happy to be helping the people who need it most.”
Tickets for the event will go on sale on Friday, May 21 at 10 am ET and will cost $49.99.
