Alan Jackson is joining in with the nation-wide support to help recovery from Hurricane Harvey.
This weekend, his AJ’s Good Time Bar in downtown Nashville is donating $1 for every item sold to the Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund, administered through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. He’s calling the initiative #HonkyTonks4Texas.
“I’ve toured a lot over the years in east Texas, played the Houston Rodeo 23 times and I hate to see what’s happening down there,” Alan shares in a press release from his label. “It’s tough to watch…and I can’t imagine what my fans and all the people of Texas are goin’ through…and I hope this allows folks in Nashville to feel like they can do a little something to help.”
“Just seven short years ago, we were all impacted by a crippling flood in Nashville, and we couldn’t have made it through it without the overwhelming amount of support we received nationwide,” recalls Matt Harville, General Manager at AJ’s Good Time Bar, who was working in downtown Nashville at the time of the 2010 floods. “Finding a way to give back is an easy choice, and we hope other bars and honky-tonks on Broadway will join us in this effort.”
The four-story establishment officially opened all four floors in May 2017, and is located on the corner of 4th Avenue and lower Broadway in Nashville. It’s the only 100% artist-owned bar in the heart of Music City.
