Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker, Locash, Randy Houser & More to Perform at Ryman’s Hurricane Benefit Concert

The country music community is coming together to assist those affected by Hurricane Dorian.

The SIP Hope 4 Hope Town benefit concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Sept. 16 will feature performances by Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Charles Esten, Ryan Hurd, Dan Tyminski, Drew Holcomb, Riley Green, Jamey Johnson, Locash, Darius Rucker, Randy Houser, Kristian Bush, Mark Bryan of Hootie & the Blowfish, Devin Dawson, James Otto, Chris Gelbuda, Wyatt Durette, Channing Wilson, Tyler Reeve, Django Walker and more.

The fundraising event is the brainchild of songwriter Patrick Davis, who founded the Songwriters in Paradise music festival in 2013 in Hope Town on the Abaco Island in the Bahamas, one of the areas recently devastated by Hurricane Dorian.

An online auction will also coincide with the concert. Additionally, Patrick created a GoFundMe campaign, which has already raised more than $398,000, to assist those in need in the Bahamas.

Tickets for the SIP Hope 4 Hope Town benefit concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium are on sale now.
