As previously announced, the “Kentucky Rising” benefit concert is set for October 11th at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky, and will feature some of the biggest names in country music to ever come out of Kentucky… Chris Stapleton, Tyler Childers, and Dwight Yoakam.
And while we knew the concert was going to sell out quick, the good news is that it’s going to be livestreamed for all of us at home via Veeps
The proceeds from the concert will go to the “Kentucky Rising Fund,” to support flood victims, relief work, and recovery in Eastern Kentucky, from the flooding that plagued the region back in August, resulting in the death of 39 people.
Chris shared the announcement in a post on his Instagram:
