Amy Grant and Vince Gill

Vince Gill teamed up with Nashville’s NBC affiliate station, WSMV, to host a flood relief telethon on May 6, 2010. The notoriously charitable star recruited an impressive list of friends to perform on the live broadcast, including Keith Urban, Alison Krauss, Naomi Judd, Darius Rucker, Mark Volman of The Turtles, Phil Vassar, Lee Roy Parnell, Lonestar, Buddy Jewell, Bo Bice and others.

All proceeds from the telethon benefited the Salvation Army, Red Cross and Second Harvest Food Bank. Thousands of middle Tennessee residents were in dire need of food, shelter and financial assistance as a result of devastating floods that ravaged the area earlier that week. With more than 15 inches of rain over a 48 hour period, the Nashville area experienced its worst flooding since the early ’70s.

‘Working 4 You: Flood Relief with Vince Gill & Friends’ aired from 7:00 – 10:00 PM CT on Channel 4  in the middle Tennessee area and online at wsmv.com.
