Artists are joining relief efforts nationwide to support those affected by Tropical Storm Harvey.
Young lived in Arlington, Texas, before signing with RCA Records, has toured extensively throughout the Lone Star state and owns a home in the direct eye of the storm.
“I have friends and family there and I’m fairly positive my house down there may have to be torn down as it was in one of the hardest hit areas by wind and flooding,” Young said in a video online. “But that’s the least of my concern. I’m worried about the people there — my friends, family and neighbors.”
Harvey made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane on Friday (Aug. 25) near Rockport, Texas, and more torrential rainfall and catastrophic flooding is expected to hit the Texas gulf coast this week. Parts of the southeast Houston area have received more than 30 inches of rain since Thursday (Aug. 24).
According to the Weather Channel, this may end up being one of the worst flood disasters in U.S. history.
CMT’s pro-social initiative, CMT One Country, continues to support the American Red Cross in their efforts to provide disaster relief to those affected by Harvey. Donate $10 directly to the Red Cross by texting 90999. Volunteer opportunities nationwide are also available through the CMT One Country website.
My family's church @colbaytowntx in Baytown is becoming a disaster shelter for all the families that have lost their homes and cars due to #hurricaneharvey. Please donate to help them house and help give back to the people affected. My heart is breaking so much for Baytown. The steps are in the pics and the link is in my bio. 1: click link 2: go to "giving type" tab 3: scroll to "storm relief" 4: give anything you can… even a dollar. Think about it: if everyone of my followers gave 1 dollar that would be 369 thousand dollars raised. Let's stand together and help people who need us.
So very sorry to see the awful, catastrophic flooding that is happening as a result of Harvey. Sending prayers and love to all.
