In an all-out effort to support Tennessee’s neighbors to the north, the country music star has launched the #KentuckyStrong campaign in Nashville and is inviting his fellow artists, friends, fans, and anyone wanting to help to join him. To raise money, T. Graham has taken the lyrics to his song “Hell and High Water” and created a “Come Hell Or High Water” t-shirt for people to purchase at his website to bring much-needed financial support to the devastated communities in Kentucky. T-Shirts are $25 with proceeds being provided directly to Kentuckians in need.
In addition, T’s Hillbilly Iced Tea and Lemonade wrapped tour bus will be headed to Kentucky on Thursday to deliver the much-needed supplies including water, flashlights, batteries, generators, tarps, coolers, baby supplies, cleaning supplies, hoses, and more. Fellow Nashvillians can bring any of these items to meet the tour bus on Wednesday, August 3rd between 10 – 2 pm at the WALMART in Franklin, Tennessee located at 3600 Mallory Ln. Financial donations will also be accepted at the drop-off location.
Directions from Nashville: Take I-65 S to Exit 67 / West McEwen Drive, North on Mallory Lane.
“I remember when Nashville flooded and how everyone stood together and we worked as a family to help our fellow neighbor. My heart says we need to do that very same thing now,” says T. Graham Brown. “So many great country stars like Keith Whitley, Dwight Yoakam, The Judds, Exile, Ricky Skaggs, Loretta Lynn, Crystal Gayle, and others all came from up there and we have to support their families. It is the right thing and the only thing to do so I am happy to help spearhead these efforts. Now, everyone needs to just ask their friends and neighbors to go to my website and buy a Kentucky Strong shirt so we can raise lots of money for our friends.”
Mike Smardak of Outback Presents, Jay Jackson of Screen Play merchandising, CROSLEY RADIO, SERVPRO, and fellow artist Don McLean have already jumped on board to help provide generators, financial aid, and other supplies for T. Graham Brown’s #KentuckyStrong Nashville effort.
