Thousands of country fans came together at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena for Country Rising. The sold-out benefit concert served as a fundraiser for those affected by devastating hurricanes this year, as well as for victims of the shooting at Harvest 91 Festival in Las Vegas. More than 4 million dollars was raised to support these various charitable initiatives thanks to help from Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and many more. Garth Brooks sent a video telling the crowd he would donate the proceeds from two headlining shows. Additionally during his performance, Chris Stapleton announced that he and wife Morgane are donating $250,000 to the causes.
