This superstar line-up will continue to grow and many additions will be announced as the event draws closer.

"The damage that we've seen to people's homes and the effect that the flooding has had on their lives is unimaginable.  But we've seen the spirit of our community first hand, as volunteers, church groups and our local business leaders rally to help," said Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.  "We all need to continue to support those in need in anyway that we can, and for that reason we could not be more appreciative to all of the artists, the companies and the people behind the scenes, who collectively, will make June 22 a truly special night."

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 14 at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com.
