The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - From press re­lease

Ja­son Is­bell and the 400 Unit, John Berry, Gordon Mote and Sir­iusXM’s Storme War­ren have been an­nounced to join an all-star lineup of tal­ent in Jack­sonville, Ala. this fall when some of mu­sic’s great­est voices come to­gether to raise funds for a very spe­cial cause.

On Sept. 26, 2018, Ja­son Is­bell and the 400 Unit, Mote and Berry will join Alabama, the Char­lie Daniels Band, Shenan­doah, and Jamey Johnson, for the Alabama and Friends #JSUStrong tor­nado re­lief con­cert ben­e­fit­ing Jack­sonville State Uni­ver­sity (JSU).

Co­me­dian Dar­ren Knight “South­ern Momma” is also sched­uled to per­form.

Sir­iusXM’s Storme War­ren will em­cee the event.

On March 19, JSU and the sur­round­ing Jack­sonville com­mu­nity was hit by a EF-3 tor­nado, se­verely dam­ag­ing 23 build­ings and im­pact­ing more than 50 ad­di­tional struc­tures.

For­tu­nately, there was no loss of life how­ever millions of dol­lars in dam­age was re­ported fol­low­ing the storm.

“We are so thank­ful and blessed that friends of ours, and some from our great state of Alabama, have of­fered to help raise funds to re­pair the dam­age from the hor­rific tor­nado a few months back,” says Alabama front­man Randy Owen. “The uni­ver­sity has been won­der­ful to work with on help­ing us setup the con­cert. From the looks of ticket sales and strong sup­port from spon­sors, this will be a very spe­cial night for the at­ten­dees.”

Na­tion­wide In­surance (Randy Jones and As­so­ciates, Inc.) has signed-on as the pre­sent­ing spon­sor.

Plat­inum spon­sors in­clude Dr. Pep­per (of­fi­cial drink of the show), Alabama Power, Alfa In­surance, Marc and Mary An­gle, Ken and Jenny Howell, and Trycon Tufters. With these gen­er­ous spon­sors on­board to cover the con­cert’s ex­penses, 100% of the even­ing’s pro­ceeds will go to Jack­sonville State Uni­ver­sity.

With 90 per­cent of tick­ets al­ready sold, the event is shap­ing up to be the year’s largest live sta­dium con­cert in North­ern Alabama.

Ad­di­tional guest per­form­ers will be an­nounced in the com­ing weeks.

The rain or shine event be­gins at 6:00 p.m. CT. Tick­ets prices start at $25 and are on sale now at Tick­et­fly.com or by call­ing 877-4FLY-TIX.
