Lady Antebellum Donates Proceeds from Merchandise Sales to Hurricane Harvey Relief
Lady Antebellum is joining the list of country artists that are showing their support for those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Texas.
Although the country trio was forced to cancel their tour date in Houston due to the Category Four hurricane, they decided to give back with the simple notion of donating all of the money made from their Dallas merchandise sales right back into the relief fund to help those caught in Hurricane Harvey’s path.

“We are so sad to have had to cancel our show in Houston tonight. Last night, we played a show up the street in Dallas and all of our merch proceeds will be going towards hurricane relief funds. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by #HurricaneHarvey,” Lady A wrote on social media.
It’s unknown how much money would be sent off to aid the victims in the horrific storms, but their random act of kindness goes a long way in the line of lending a hand during these catastrophic weather patterns.
Chris Young started his own initiative to help out with Hurricane Harvey in the Houston area by creating a GoFundMe page for fans to donate as much as they could to the American Red Cross. Giving $100,000 of his own money to kickstart the cause, Young already raised almost $50,000 in a matter of less than 24 hours.
Other country stars expressed their sadness and woes via social media, with Miranda Lambert sending prayers to her home state and Brad Paisley admitting his disbelief over all of the damage done in the Southeast Texas region.
Fans interested in giving back to the communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey can head over to the American Red Cross website now to donate.
