(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- CMT has announced plans for a Disaster Relief Concert to broadcast live from Nashville on May 12. Hank Williams, Jr. spearheaded the event after seeing the devastation from last week's deadly tornadoes in Alabama.
"I just couldn't believe what I was seeing on TV,” Williams said. “Alabama is home -- I am really pumped about helping."
Alabama, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Ronnie Dunn, Sara Evans and Tim McGraw have also signed on to perform on the show, and more artists will be announced soon. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts.
