ARISTA/NASHVILLE’s ALAN JACKSON will perform a benefit concert in CHARLESTON, WV on MAY 22nd for the MONTCOAL MINING DISASTER FUND. The show will be held at the CHARLESTON CIVIC CENTER at 7p (ET).
The night is being dedicated to the families who lost loved ones in the recent underground coal explosion at the UPPER BIG BRANCH mine. Twenty-nine miners were killed inside the mine APRIL 5th, in what is being called the nation’s worst mining accident in 40 years.
WEST VIRGINIA Governor JOE MANCHIN III said in a statement: "This is a very wonderful donation from ALAN. I'm honored for our miners, their families and the rescue workers."
