Dustin Lynch Inspired to Host Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Victims After Emotional Shelter Visit


Add Dustin Lynch to the growing list of country stars doing their part to help out the victims of Hurricane Harvey— the storm that devastated Houston and it’s surrounding areas.

The “Seein’ Red” singer has announced that he will host a benefit concert in Dallas on Sept. 12 in support of the rescue and recovery efforts taking place. Earlier in Sept.—after a Texas performance—Dustin visited a Hurricane Harvey shelter and met with victims of the storm. The emotional visit made Dustin spring into action, leading to his last minute concert.

Dustin revealed the news when he called into radio stations KPLX and KSCS Wednesday morning (Sept. 6).

“The spirit of Texas, and of country music, is to help your neighbor — to pitch in when others are struggling,” Dustin said. “So many people have stepped up to lend a hand to those affected by this storm, and I’m proud to do my small part to support the citizens of Houston and surrounding communities. After visiting the storm shelter, and meeting people whose lives have changed forever, the least I can do is come back to Dallas and try to raise spirits.”

The concert will take place Tuesday, Sept. 12 at Cowboys Red River in Dallas. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door. The first 500 fans in attendance will receive a copy of Dustin’s upcoming album CURRENT MOOD. All ticket proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross.
