The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee on Wednesday announced the expected total take from the nine sold-out concerts. The nonprofit already has received $4.35 million and the money is still coming in.
The proceeds will go to The River Fund, a charitable fund within the Community Foundation. The fund already has given out $1.4 million to Hands on Nashville, the Tennessee Conference of the United Methodist Committee on Relief and the Community Resource Center.
Flood victims seeking help should call 211 to be directed to a case manager.
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.”
