Alan Jackson is headed to his hometown of Newnan, Ga to help after it was pummeled by an EF4 Tornado in March. Tickets for his “Where I Come From: Tornado Benefit” on Saturday, June 26th from the Coweta County Fairgrounds sold out on the first day.
Facebook is partnering with Jackson to Livestream the sold-out concert which will also include other Country stars like Chris Young, Georgia native Caylee Hammack, and other Newnan natives, Corbette Jackson, Adam Wright and Brian Wright.
The Livestream concert will be exclusively available on Alan Jackson's Facebook Live allowing people all over the world to watch and donate.
The storm damaged more than 1,700 homes and another 70 homes were completely destroyed. Officials estimate it will take another two to five years and several million dollars to fully restore the community. Video below shows the magnitude of the damage the town suffered.
Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Coweta Community Foundation, which is managing charitable efforts to help the people of his hometown in Newnan Georgia, that were affected by an EF4 tornado back in March
