The Associated Press reports that Garth Brooks' concert series at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena in December raised $5 million for flood relief in Tennessee. The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee announced the total from the nine sold-out concerts earlier this week.
The flooding was one of Tennessee's worst natural disasters, causing over $2 billion in damage in Nashville alone, so kudos to Brooks for his efforts for aid relief.
The proceeds will go to The River Fund, a charitable fund within the Community Foundation. In a statement, Brooks said he was honored to have been able to help. He said, "Playing music has never felt better or ever felt more right." Amen to that.
