The effort to help his tornado-ravaged hometown that’s at the center of this month’s Where I Come From: Tornado Benefit Concert Featuring Alan Jackson continues to expand as organizers announce an exclusive partnership with Facebook to livestream Jackson’s performance at the sold-out event on June 26th.
Jackson is headlining the event in his hometown of Newnan, Georgia to assist those impacted by an EF-4 tornado that ripped through the town in March. Proceeds from Where I Come From: Tornado Benefit Featuring Alan Jackson will benefit the Coweta Community Foundation’s Tornado Relief Fund. The event at the Coweta County Fairgrounds in Newnan sold out within hours of going on sale, but organizers continue to encourage donations to the fund via the Foundation’s website.
The livestream of the concert will be exclusively available on Facebook Live, and will not only allow anyone who missed out on a ticket to virtually attend, but will create nationwide and global awareness of the event and opportunities for people all over the world to offer support. Watch the livestream Saturday, June 26 on Jackson’s Facebook page here. (RSVP here).
The June 26th concert headlined by Jackson finds the Country Music Hall of Fame member joined by multi-platinum entertainer Chris Young, singer-songwriter-producer Caylee Hammack, singer-songwriter Adam Wright and country artist “Big City” Brian Wright, the latter two both – like Jackson – Newnan natives.
Cornerstone Building Brands is the presenting sponsor of Where I Come From: Tornado Benefit Featuring Alan Jackson. The event is driven by Southtowne Chevrolet. Additional details are available at AlanJacksonBenefit.com.
Jackson – one of the most successful and respected singer-songwriters in music – just released his latest album, Where Have You Gone, May 14. The 21-track collection features 15 songs penned solely by the music icon. He’s also the man behind one of Nashville’s most-popular tourist stops, AJ’s Good Time Bar, a four-story honky-tonk in the heart of downtown featuring daily live music and a rooftop view of Music City.
