Alan Jackson is raising money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey at AJ’s Good Time Bar in Nashville. The singer just launched the #HonkyTonks4Texas initiative. Until the bar closes on Monday, a dollar from every item sold will be donated to Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund administered through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
“I’ve toured a lot over the years in east Texas, played the Houston Rodeo 23 times and I hate to see what’s happening down there,” he says. “It’s tough to watch…and I can’t imagine what my fans and all the people of Texas are goin’ through…and I hope this allows folks in Nashville to feel like they can do a little something to help.”
He adds, “Finding a way to give back is an easy choice, and we hope other bars and honky tonks on Broadway will join us in this effort.”
