CMT Sets Disaster Relief Special

Fundraising show airs May 12.

Hank Williams Jr. is corralling a few of his rowdy friends to aid those in need.

Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Alabama and other stars will perform on a 90-minute CMT special, the CMT Disaster Relief Concert, airing Thursday, May 12, at 9 p.m. ET.

The special, which also features Ronnie Dunn and Sara Evans, will raise funds and awareness for the victims of the recent storms, floods and tornadoes that hit Alabama and other states. All money raised will benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts.

Hank Jr. got the ball rolling for the event after seeing the devastation on television. "I want to raise a lot of money, and thanks to my good friends, we are going to be able to make a difference," he said in a press release.

The CMT Disaster Relief Concert is not open to the public. But fans can certainly help the effort. You may text "REDCROSS" to 90999 to make a $10 donation or make a pledge to donate during the CMT special.
