Florida Georgia Line and More Join SIP Hope 4 Hope Town Hurricane Dorian Benefit Concert
Florida Georgia Line are among the artists who have joined the lineup for a Nashville-based benefit concert to raise money for victims of Hurricane Dorian.
The duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley are among the artists newly announced to take part in the SIP Hope 4 Hope Town benefit concert that is slated to take place at Nashville's legendary Ryman Auditorium on Monday (Sept. 16), along with 14-time Grammy winner Dan Tyminski, Ryan Hurd, Drew Holcomb, Nashville star Charles Esten, Riley Green and more.
Songwriter Patrick Davis is putting together the concert. Davis founded Songwriters in Paradise (SIP), a music festival that has taken place in Hope Town on the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas for the last eight years. The Abaco Islands and the Bahamas have been devastated by Hurricane Dorian, a category 5 hurricane that began to form on Aug. 24 and ultimately generated winds of up to 185 mph. At least 50 deaths have been confirmed in the Bahamas, according to NBC News, but that number is expected to rise significantly as thousands of people have been displaced and many are not yet accounted for.
Dierks Bentley, Jamey Johnson, LoCash, Darius Rucker, Randy Houser, Kristian Bush of Sugarland, Mark Bryan of Hootie & the Blowfish, Devin Dawson and James Otto are among the artists who were previously announced for the benefit. Tickets are currently available through the Ryman's website or via Ticketmaster, with prices ranging from $35-$250. An online auction featuring one-of-a-kind items will also coincide with the benefit concert.
