All of the money raised will go toward Hands on Nashville, one of the many local organizations spearheading volunteer efforts.

The concert will take place at Whiskey Row at 7 p.m. local time on March 9.

The tornadoes, which crossed through Tennessee in the early morning hours of March 3, brought devastation to the Nashville area, especially the neighborhoods of East Nashville, Germantown, Donelson and Mt. Juliet.

Cookeville, which roughly two hours outside of the city, was also impacted. At least 24 people have died across the state with several more injured and many buildings severely damaged.
