Clint Black, Don Henley, Lyle Lovett to Headline Hurricane Harvey Benefit in Texas

Clint Black, Don Henley and Lyle Lovett will take the stage for Helping Texans: A Hurricane Harvey Benefit Concert on Nov. 28 at Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth, Texas. The singer-songwriters will do so “in support of their fellow Texans,” a press release explains, “whose lives have been upended by the ravages of one of the most vicious hurricanes in history.”

All proceeds from the one-of-a-kind show will go to The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund at the North Texas Community Foundation, which will then distribute the funds to charitable organizations and programs working in Houston and Aransas County to bring relief to those affected by Harvey. And these distributions will be allocated according to the input of Black, Henley and Lovett, as well as Ed Bass, who is underwriting the event’s expenses so that the full proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships can go towards supporting hurricane relief.

Black recalled what his family went through during Harvey in a statement:

“We all watched on the news as Harvey destroyed much of Southeast Texas and Houston, my hometown. We braced ourselves through the night as the flood waters grew closer to our family’s doorsteps in Houston and Katy. My mom, brothers, niece and nephews were all very fortunate and I knew I had to find a way to help those who weren’t so lucky, to recover and rebuild what was lost in the hurricane. I’m really proud to have friends like, Don, Lyle and everyone at Bass Performance Hall who’ll join together for the cause.”

“This is another example of Texans helping Texans, and I’m proud to be a part of
it,” said Henley, while Lovett added, “I’m honored to join fellow Texans Don Henley, Clint Black and Ed Bass to raise money for victims of Hurricane Harvey.”

Tickets go on sale this Friday, Sept. 22, via Bass Hall’s website and by phone at (817) 212-4280.
