Nashville Concert Will Benefit Tennessee Flood Victims

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country music songwriter Paul Overstreet is hosting a concert this week to benefit victims of Tennessee flooding last month in Waverly County.

Other songwriters and artists joining Overstreet include Jeffrey Steele, Lee Thomas Miller, Rory Feek, Wendell Mobley, Jake Owen, Scotty Emerick, Even Stevens, Lee Greenwood and others, according to a news release.

The event Thursday is being held at Ray Stevens CabaRay in Nashville.

The Aug. 21 flooding killed 20 people as it took out houses, roads, cell phone towers and telephone lines.

Waverly flood victims will receive 100% of the ticket sales, the release said. The show will run from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. Food trucks will be available outside with free parking.
