Brad Paisley Pitches in to Help West Virginia Flood Victims

Arista NashvilleBrad Paisley is pitching in to help his home state of West Virginia, after the June 23 floods that killed more than twenty people and devastated multiple small towns. After performing the John Denver classic “Take Me Home, Country Roads” in a video posted on his Facebook page, Brad launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for the region, where 44 out of 55 counties have declared a state of emergency.

The “Without a Fight” singer got the ball rolling by contributing $100,000 himself, with a goal of raising a million dollars. The money will go to help flood victims through Brad’s foundation. He plans to visit the area on Thursday, and isn’t counting out the idea of doing a benefit concert at some point, though he stresses “now is not the time.”
