ALAN PERFORMS BENEFIT FOR TORNADO VICTIMS

Alan Jackson performed a benefit show at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Wednesday night, Aug. 2, to help local tornado victims.

Alan’s show raised money for the Hawkins family of Hendersonville, Tenn., the victims of a massive tornado in April. Two songs from Alan’s show, “Remember When” and “Livin’ on Love,” will air on an edition of the ABC series, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, which will air this fall. The family, firefighter Jerrod Hawkins, his wife Amy and their two sons, will receive a new and renovated home on the show. “I heard about the tornado when it happened,” Alan said before his performance. “Of course, I heard a lot of stories about the people who suffered so much, especially the Hawkins family. A whole lot of people have donated money [for the family]—Nashville’s always been a caring community.”
