Rascal Flatts appeared on ABC's Good Morning America on Thursday (Aug. 31) to share a moving rendition of their song "I Won't Let Go," dedicated to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Readers can press play above to watch their emotional delivery of the song, which features images of hurricane survivors and their rescuers.
Rascal Flatts are currently promoting their Back to Us album and visited GMA as part of the Day of Giving, an all-day fundraiser taking place on ABC, RadioDisney and Freeform media platforms. The Flatts' GMA appearance also included a performance of the title track of their new album, which is their current single. The entire segment was a call-to-action, encouraging viewers to donate to hurricane relief efforts via the American Red Cross.
Along with Rascal Flatts, a number of other country artists have stepped up to help with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts: On Wednesday night (Aug. 30), Florida Georgia Line’s FGL House, located in Nashville, hosted a fundraiser, and Alan Jackson's AJ's Good Time Bar is also donating some of its Labor Day Weekend profits to relief efforts.
Chris Young, meanwhile, has set up a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money for those affected by the natural disaster, encouraging his fans to donate whatever they can to the fund, which will be given to the Red Cross and other local Texas disaster relief organizations, and giving $100,000 himself. Young says he also plans to get involved with other, larger fundraising campaigns.
Also helping Hurricane Harvey victims are Granger Smith, Luke Combs, Lady Antebellum and the Josh Abbott Band. Smith, a Dallas, Texas, native, is now donating 100 percent of profits from merchandise sales through his online store to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts; Lady A, too, donated merch proceeds, specifically from their Saturday night (Aug. 26) concert in Dallas, to hurricane-related charities. Combs, meanwhile, tweeted that he would be donating $10,000 to Samaritan’s Purse, “a non-denominational evangelical Christian” that’s sending five disaster relief teams to help Hurricane Harvey victims, and the Josh Abbott Band are selling a special T-shirt and donating the proceeds to “accredited organizations helping in disaster recovery.”
Additionally, Miranda Lambert, with her MuttNation Foundation, headed to the affected parts of Texas to do whatever they can for the animals displaced by the storm, and George Strait has revealed that he is working on a major relief effort “with the whole country music community.”
