Initiative hopes to spark movement for Music City businesses to aid Houston and surrounding areas
Alan Jackson’s AJ’s Good Time Bar launches a weekend-long #HonkyTonks4Texas initiative to aid in flood relief for Houston, TX, and its surrounding cities. Beginning Thursday, August 31, and running through the bar’s close on Labor Day, Monday, September 4, AJ’s Good Time Bar will donate $1 for every item sold to the Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund administered through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
“I’ve toured a lot over the years in east Texas, played the Houston Rodeo 23 times and I hate to see what’s happening down there. It’s tough to watch…and I can’t imagine what my fans and all the people of Texas are goin’ through…and I hope this allows folks in Nashville to feel like they can do a little something to help,” says Jackson.
“Just seven short years ago, we were all impacted by a crippling flood in Nashville, and we couldn’t have made it through it without the overwhelming amount of support we received nationwide,” says Matt Harville, General Manager at AJ’s Good Time Bar who was working in downtown Music City during the city’s 2010 floods. “Finding a way to give back is an easy choice, and we hope other bars and honky tonks on Broadway will join us in this effort.”
