Country duo headlines relief benefit
LEXINGTON — 98.1 WBUL The Bull has announced Montgomery Gentry to headline the Kentucky Cares Concert today to benefit victims from the recent tornado that ripped through eastern Kentucky in early March. The concert will be at Busters Billiards & Backroom with proceeds to go to the local American Red Cross. Tickets are on sale now at http://www.ticketfly.com/. Fellow Kentuckian Laura Bell Bundy also will be performing.
“Our hearts went out to all those family and businesses that were affected by the storms,” says Eddie Montgomery. “We’ve been trying to organize something for a while, so we’re real glad this worked out with The Bull. This is our home and we want to do everything we can to help.”
Troy Gentry adds, “We were devastated to hear of the destruction that went through Kentucky. We are honored to help out and look forward to a big hometown party and raising much needed funds for these communities that need it.”
