Alabama, Charlie Daniels, Jason Isbell & Others Help Raise More Than $1 Million for Tornado Relief

Alabama frontman Randy Owen assembled some of his talented friends on Sept. 26 to help raise more than $1 million for his alma mater, Jacksonville State University.

Alabama, Charlie Daniels, Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, Shenandoah, Jamey Johnson, Riley Green, Drake White, Home Free, John Berry, Gordon Mote, Darren Knight, Sixwire and Sweet Tea Trio performed as part of the Alabama & Friends #JSUStrong Tornado Relief Concert benefiting Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama.

“Teddy [Gentry], Jeff [Cook] and I are so proud of the artists who played this benefit for tornado damage at Jacksonville State University,” says Randy, mentioning his Alabama bandmates. “With over $70 million dollars in damages, we’re glad that we, along with our artist friends, were able to help raise over a million dollars Wednesday night. I graduated from JSU, so it’s very personal for me.”

On March 19, Jacksonville was hit by a tornado that severely impacted 23 buildings and caused millions of dollars in damage. Fortunately, there was no loss of life.

The Tornado Relief Concert raised $1.2 million for JSU through ticket sales, sponsorships and in-kind donations.
