Miranda Lambert Donates Ticket Sale Proceeds to Aid Tornado Relief Effort

In the wake of the March 2 storms that resulted in a spinoff of destructive tornadoes, artists in the country music community are doing what they can to help people get back into their homes and back on their feet. For her part, Miranda Lambert just announced that she’ll be donating 100 percent of the proceeds from remaining ticket sales of her Louisville, Ky. concert to the American Red Cross.

Lambert is scheduled to make a tour stop at the the KFC Yum Center March 24, and since parts of Kentucky were so severely hit by the tornadoes, she’s selected a concert in that state to be the benefit show. The Red Cross already has a fund set up to help storm victims, and all of the profits from this show will go to that Kentucky and Southern Indiana Disaster Relief Fund.

Further augmenting Lambert’s charitable efforts, both Ticketmaster and the Yum Center have agreed to waive their fees for the tickets, so the only fees that will still apply will be those from credit card companies. With tickets starting at $25.75 apiece, this effort should be able to make a significant dent in the work that needs to be done in the most devastated areas.

Lambert isn’t the only one making a concerted effort to aid in the cause, of course. On Tuesday, country star Rodney Atkins hosted a tornado relief radio drive to raise funds for some of the worst hit areas — one of which being his hometown of Harrogate, Tenn. Joining up with WRIL 106.3 FM in Pineville, Ky., Atkins encouraged listeners to support a cause, and he even agreed to match donations up to $15,000.

The March 2 tornadoes caused 22 deaths and injured roughly 300 others.
