Florida Georgia Line Hosting Fundraiser to Benefit Hurricane Victims
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey's destruction throughout southern Texas, many country singers have stepped up to help families affected by the storm. Florida Georgia Line aren't Texans, but they felt compelled to help, so they're hosting a last-minute fundraiser at their venue/restaurant FGL House on Wednesday night (Aug. 30).
The duo have set up a benefit to take place during the television broadcast of their CMT Crossroads appearance with the Backstreet Boys. The event will also act as a viewing party, but proceeds will go to the American Red Cross and ultimately, displaced Texans.

According to a press release, CMT Crossroads will be played on screens throughout FGL's entire four-level restaurant, and American Red Cross representatives will be onsite to assist in patron donations. The viewing party is open to the public and those who donate $25 to the American Red Cross will gain entry to a VIP section in FGL House's basement lounge, which will have complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a raffle entry for giveaways.
Additionally, the first 50 supporters will also receive an FGL tour T-shirt.
CMT Crossroads featuring Florida Georgia Line and Backstreet Boys airs on Aug. 30 at 10PM ET. In a clip released ahead of the show's premiere, Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley seem to be enjoying their time onstage with the pop stars while singing BSB's 1998 hit "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)." They even assist at the end of the performance with the choreography from the song.
