Sugarland Will Reunite Tornado Family During Awards Live Show Tonight [VIDEO]
Sugarland is reuniting a family tonight that lost everything in the tornado’s that destroyed the community of Joplin, Mo. last month. The reunion will take place during the CMT MUSIC AWARDS LIVE from Nashville tonight at 7 PM on the CMT Channel.
The Gilbert family survived, but their home was a total loss back on May 22 when the storms hit. Since then, Amy and Eric Gilbert (the parents), have been living with friends, while their two daughters are staying other family members just a few hours away. Since they’re unable to spend more time together since the storms, they will be reunited and they’ll be part of Sugarland’s performance during the CMT MUSIC AWARDS, airing tonight live on CMT at 7:00 p.m. CT.
The Awards Show intends to raise awareness and money for the hundreds of thousands of families affected by the deadly storms.
