Holy cow, y'all! this might be one of the best country lineups we've seen this year.
Announced earlier this morning on Good Morning America, a telethon, Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief, has been set to aid those affected by Hurricane Harvey on Tuesday, September 12. The one-hour special will feature celebrity participants and performances including songs from country music icon and Texas native George Strait live from his benefit concert at San Antonio’s Majestic Theatre. Joining Strait is a incredibly stacked showcase featuring Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton, Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen.
That's right, on Tuesday, September 12 George Strait, Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton, Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen will be in San Antonio.
This is not a test.
Select performances from Majestic Theatre will air on ABC, CBS, CMT, Fox and NBC on Tuesday, September 12 at 7 p.m. Central. The telethon broadcast, as well as Strait’s Hand in Hand Texas show, will also be available internationally via live stream on Facebook.
