DUSTIN LYNCH took the stage for a sold-out benefit concert at Cowboys Red River in Dallas to support victims affected by the recent combined tragedies of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The show, which Lynch announced last week after a visit to Texas where he witnessed the devastation of Harvey firsthand, was a high energy, packed-house tribute to the people of the affected areas.
As a thank you for their donation, the first 500 fans in attendance received a physical copy of Lynch’s new album CURRENT MOOD.
“To come back to Dallas and get to put on a show for these folks really means a lot to me,” said Lynch. “The people affected by this hurricane have shown so much strength and it’s truly been inspiring to see the community come together and support each other.”
Lynch was moved to take action after an impactful meeting with hurricane evacuees who sought refuge in Dallas shelters. With help from local radio stations KPLX and KSCS, the hitmaker organized the spontaneous event to not only raise funds but also spirits.
All proceeds will be donated to support ongoing storm relief efforts throughout the Southeast, via the American Red Cross.
Lynch will close out the week on the West Coast, visiting ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight (9/14) for an outdoor stage performance as he continues to celebrate the release of CURRENT MOOD and his fifth consecutive chart-topper, “Small Town Boy.”
