CMT is partnering with the American Red Cross and Nashville NBC affiliate WSMV News 4 for a telethon to benefit Nashville tornado relief efforts.
The telethon will air across all of CMT’s social media platforms. According to a press release, “Country music artists, local television personalities and volunteers alike will be answering phones live during the telethon to take donations, share personal stories and encourage support of tornado relief efforts in Middle Tennessee following the devastation that swept through the area earlier this week.”
The money raised will go to support those who were affected and displaced by the deadly tornado that tore through Nashville and central Tennessee on Tuesday.
Other stars are offering up their help as well.
