East Texas Hosts All 5 Living Former US Presidents This Weekend
All of our living former US Presidents will be in East Texas this weekend, at an event that will also include several bands with deep Texas roots.
All of the proceeds from the show will go to the relief organization that was created by the Presidents after Hurricane Harvey.
The last time all five Presidents shared a stage was in 2013 in Dallas for the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library. They've decided to come together this Saturday for the "Deep From the Heart" concert with performances from Alabama, Lyle Lovett, the Gatlin Brothers, Robert Earl Keen and other artists -- many of whom have Texas ties -- and every penny goes to hurricane relief.
As tough as it must be to have your house or car or workplace ruined by a hurricane, it has to feel pretty empowering to have US Presidents on your side and doing what they can to help. George H.W. Bush said "It's important that those affected by these devastating storms know that, even if the path to recovery feels like a road that goes on forever, we're with them for the long haul."
The Dallas Morning News says the concert is supported by Texas A&M University and will take place at Reed Arena on the College Station campus. It benefits victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
One America Appeal is the hurricane relief organization created by the five presidents after Hurricane Harvey, and that group will receive 100 percent of the concert's proceeds.
The concert at Reed Arena is set for Saturday, October 21 from 7 to 9pm. Check for ticket availability HERE.
