On March 26th, 2021, an EF-4 tornado – just shy of the most-powerful ranking on the National Weather Service’s scale – ripped across Newnan…the city where Jackson and his wife, Denise were born, raised, met and married. At least 70 homes were completely destroyed, many others suffered major damage, and – all told – over 1700 structures were impacted and compromised.
We have received so many messages asking if Alan Jackson would come back to visit or if he would send a message. We've got even better news...
Country Music icon Alan Jackson will return to his hometown next month as he headlines a special concert event to benefit relief efforts in Newnan, Georgia. Where I Come From: Tornado Benefit Featuring Alan Jackson will find the superstar bringing three decades of hits to the stage in an area recently ravaged and still recovering from a devastating spring tornado.
The June 26th concert will take place at Newnan’s Coweta County Fairgrounds (275 Pine Rd., Newnan GA, 30263).
Tickets for the event go on sale Friday, May 21 at 10:00am ET.
Ticket prices start at $49.99, and pre-sale opportunities will be available.
Proceeds to benefit the Coweta Community Foundation.
