Chris Stapleton, Dwight Yoakam, and Tyler Childers will be among the performers at the Kentucky Rising benefit set for next month to help with flood relieft and recovery after Eastern Kentucky was devastated earlier this summer. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 11th at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky. Tickets go on sale on Friday (September 16th) via KentuckyRising.com.
According to a press release, 100% of net proceeds from the concert will benefit the “Kentucky Rising Fund” which also supports the victims, their families and first responders.
Stapleton was spotted shopping for supplies in Knott County, Kentucky in the days after the flooding. He delivered those supplies to people in need in addition to helping with cleanup efforts.
At least 39 people died in the July floods across Kentucky.
