Jackson Donates Concert Proceeds to Hurricane Relief

Alan Jackson is donating all of the proceeds from his Thursday night (Sept. 8) concert in Columbus, Ohio, to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Additionally, Jackson’s Saturday night (Sept. 10) show at the Tweeter Center in Philadelphia could raise an additional $75,000 for relief efforts. Jackson, the venue’s management and Beasley Broadcast Group’s country radio station in Philadelphia, WXTU, will each donate $1 for every ticket sold to the concert that also features Sara Evans and the Wrights. Jackson is also among the country, rock and hip-hop superstars participating in ReAct Now: Music & Relief, a three-hour concert special airing Saturday (Sept. 10) on CMT, MTV and VH1 to benefit the relief efforts.
