Just as the country began to push up its sleeves to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, and country artists made plans to participate in fundraisers for their hurting fans in Texas, another hurricane is now looming on the horizon.

Her name is Irma.

Currently clocking in as a Category 5, and tracking to squarely hit Florida, many country artists who were born and or raised in the Sunshine State headed to social media to express their concern over the monster storm.

“Worried for my home state FL and all my friends and family,” Cassadee Pope tweeted on September 6. “Please stay safe and evacuate if you’re able.”

“I urge all my Floridian family, friends and fans to please heed the early #HurricaneIrma warnings,” Travis Tritt tweeted. “Don’t let a storm kill you! Prepare now!”

Of course, Hurricane Irma has already wreaked havoc on Caribbean islands such as St. Martin and Barbuda.


“@noshoesnation, please pray for all my friends in the islands. #hurricaneirma,” Kenny Chesney posted on Instagram and Facebook alongside devastating pictures of the destruction. He also made a promise to enlist his friends “to figure out the best ways to make a difference, to help in whatever ways, small or large, that we can.”

As daylight is hitting the islands, and we’re really getting a sense of how bad this all is…I don’t know what to say….

“Praying real hard for all of our Virgin Island friends and everyone in Florida and Puerto Rico and everyone else in the path of #irma,” added Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line.

We pray for everyone currently in Hurricane Irma’s path, and those already affected by the storm.
