Country music superstar Luke Bryan and his team are currently coordinating with Houston-area authorities to make tickets available to members of Hurricane Harvey’s first responder teams to attend his Houston, Texas concert on Friday, September 22nd at Cynthia Woods Pavilion. Luke will also generously donate concert proceeds to benefit the Houston Community Fund.
On Tuesday night, Luke participated in the Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief Telethon special live from Nashville as part of the celebrity phone bank answering donor calls. Check him out with actresses Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman!
The show, which now benefits Hurricane Harvey and Irma victims, was broadcast across ABC, CBS, CMT, FOX and NBC from Los Angeles, New York, San Antonio, and Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry House. The show was also available internationally via live stream on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter during the first broadcast and featured some of the nation’s biggest stars including George Clooney, Jamie Foxx, Beyoncé, Rob Lowe, Matthew McConaughey, Dennis Quaid, Julia Roberts, Adam Sandler, Ryan Seacrest, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Barbra Streisand, Cole Swindell, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and more.

The Hand In Hand telethon was a major hit! So far, the star-studded event has raised more than $44 million for hurricane relief efforts in Texas and Florida.
Originally, the star-studded event was put together to benefit the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas. It was later expanded to include those affected by Irma, which hit the southeastern United States over weekend. According to new outlets, it has been estimated that both massive storms caused between $150 billion and $290 billion in damage to Texas and Florida.
At least 70 people died during Hurricane Harvey, and 22 deaths have been reported in the United States due to Hurricane Irma. We’re thrilled to see Luke Bryan put in the time to really help out others and give the brave first responder teams the recognition they deserve.
