“Kentucky Rising,” the special one-night-only benefit concert featuring some of Eastern Kentucky’s biggest names in music, will be simultaneously live streamed this Tuesday, October 11 via Veeps. Organized in response to the devastating flooding in the area earlier this summer, the sold-out event will be held at Lexington’s Rupp Arena and features performances by Chris Stapleton, Dwight Yoakam and Tyler Childers. Tickets for the live stream are on sale now, full details can be found here.
100% of net proceeds from the concert will benefit the “Kentucky Rising Fund” to support flood relief work and recovery efforts in Eastern Kentucky, including support for the many victims, their families and first responders. Under guidance from the Blue Grass Community Foundation, the “Kentucky Rising Fund” will strategically support both immediate needs and long-term recovery projects as they emerge.
