George Strait is spearheading a benefit concert in his hometown of San Antonio to help raise money for victims of Hurricane Harvey. The devastating storm battered Strait’s home state of Texas, so he’s recruited fellow Texans Miranda Lambert, Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen to perform at the special show on Tuesday, September 12. Reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year Chris Stapleton is also on the bill.
