#CountryStrong Benefit Raises Big Bucks for Orlando


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.

Available everywhere now, “Roots,” depicts a personal journey for the band-of-brothers. Lead singer Matt Thomas says of the single,

“It’s about where you come from and all the things that make you you. Those things always stay with you throughout life, and no matter how hard you might try, you can’t outrun them.”

The song is laden with emotional depth with lyrics like: “There’s still that back home part of me / That can’t help but see things a little different / Like how there ain’t no need to put a g on the end of huntin’ or fishin’ / And I still got granddaddy’s bible, his old rifle, and his name / But I also got his pour a little more coursing through my veins.”

The release of “Roots” also lays the groundwork for ParMAYlee, a month-long celebration of fan appreciation. Each day throughout the month of May fans can visit to unlock exclusive content and giveaways directly from the band themselves. Fans can join the discussion online as well using hashtag #PayMAYlee.
