Tickets were only $25, but Garth still managed to turn nine sold-out Nashville shows into more than $5 million for flood victims there, the Associated Press reports.

“Playing music has never felt better or ever felt more right,” Garth said in a statement.

Garth recreated his old high-energy arena shows for the concert series in December, at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, satisfying one item on a lot of country fans’ bucket lists.

The money will go to the River Fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. That agency has distributed money to others who are providing direct assistance to flood victims.
