Almost 10,000 people experienced four hours of music from Maddie & Tae, Tyler Farr, Jerrod Niemann, Canaan Smith, Billy Currington, Easton Corbin, Parmalee, Michael Ray and Cole Swindell at Orlando’s CFE Arena last night (6/22) during K92.3’s Country Strong concert, the Cox/Orlando and WWKA benefit for those affected by the recent mass shooting.
“Members and first responders of the Orlando Police Department and Fire Department, doctors, nurses and surgeons who attended to many of the victims, and many of their family and friends were in the audience,” MD/morning co-host Ashley Stegbauer tells Country Aircheck. “[The show] was emotional, but brought such a sense of community, peace and healing, which was a major goal.”
“An absolute success and a truly memorable and healing night for Orlando,” adds PD Drew Bland. “Major thanks to our team at K923, Cox Media Group and the countless caring people in Nashville who helped make this happen in such a short period of time.”
Proceeds are being tallied and will go the city’s OneOrlando Fund. Donations are still be accepted here.
