Sugarland To Reunite Joplin Family On CMT Awards
June 8, 2011 at 11:09 AM (PT)
MERCURY/NASHVILLE duo SUGARLAND will reunite a family who lost their home in the tornado in JOPLIN, MO at the CMT MUSIC AWARDS in NASHVILLE, TN TONIGHT (6/8). The GILBERT family survived, but experienced a total loss of their home on MAY 22nd. Since that time, parents AMY and ERIC have been living with friends and working to rebuild their lives, while their two daughters stay with family members a few hours away.
Unable to share more than a few hours together since the storms, the family will reunite to be part of SUGARLAND’s performance at the CMT MUSIC AWARDS, airing live on CMT at 8p (ET). The GILBERTS will participate in SUGARLAND’s performance of “Stand Up,” a song the duo recently released on iTUNES with download proceeds going to the AMERICAN RED CROSS.
