Alan Jackson Heads to Hometown for Benefit Concert — Raises $2 Million for Tornado Relief

Written by on June 30, 2021

Alan Jackson returned to his hometown of Newnan, Georgia, on Saturday for Where I Come From: Tornado Benefit Concert. The event raised over $2 million for the city, which suffered extensive damage following the EF-4 tornado that touched down on March 26.

Alan said to the crowd, “It’s good to be back down here in my hometown. “I’m from Newnan … my wife Denise is from Newnan. We were both born and raised here and all of our childhood and young adult memories come from this area. When we saw what that tornado did coming through here a few months ago, it broke my heart. It broke Denise’s heart. We had relatives affected by it and friends. The high school that we went to got hit.”
