“I have been touched and heartbroken by the stories I’ve heard from the recent flooding and it’s impact in Middle Tennessee,” Wallen shared. “Wanted to do my part to help. Proud that this is my first official show in such a long time. Hope you guys can make it on such short notice. Tickets on sale immediately. Link for tickets in bio. I will also post a story with info on how to donate if you are unable to attend the show.” 

According to the official event website: 

Morgan Wallen & Friends are honored to partner with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund in response to recent severe storms and flooding in Middle Tennessee. Grants from the Fund will be made to nonprofits supporting relief and restoration in areas of Middle Tennessee affected by the severe storms and floods. The size and scope and circumstance of every disaster is different. The Tennessee Emergency Response Fund was created in 2008 so that our community will be prepared to handle a disaster. Through this Fund, The Community Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations providing vital services. Your donation will provide nonprofits in the affected counties the remarkable gift to concentrate on delivering those critical services in the aftermath of these storms while we provide our community an opportunity to restore hope and to rebuild lives in both the short term as well as with long term sustainability.
