Tornado Benefit Concert featuring Alan Jackson acknowledges local, regional supporters
From Special Reports
A variety of regional and local businesses and individuals have stepped up to support this month’s Where I Come From: Tornado Benefit Featuring Alan Jackson. The June 26 event finds the superstar bringing three decades of hits to his hometown, which was recently ravaged and is still recovering from a devastating spring tornado. The Country Music Hall of Fame member will be joined by multi-platinum entertainer Chris Young, singer-songwriter-producer Caylee Hammack, singer-songwriter Adam Wright and country artist Brian Wright, the latter two both – like Jackson – Newnan natives.
“We’re incredibly grateful for the amazing generosity of not only Alan Jackson and the other performers but all of these great sponsors,” said Kristin Webb, executive director of the Coweta Community Foundation. “Newnan still has so many needs following the tornado, and this concert is going to make a huge difference for a lot of people.”
