Chris Young Begins Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort With GoFundMe Page

Subscribe to KRFO-FM on

Chris Young is nearly certain his Texas home was destroyed by Hurricane Harvey, but it’s the friends and family he has in the area he’s most concerned about. The singer has started a GoFundMe fundraiser to aid the recovery effort.

Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 storm when it made landfall in Rockport, Corpus Christi and Houston on Friday (Aug. 25). So far there have been two confirmed deaths and many injuries, and heavy rains are still pelting the area. Widespread flooding has created the need for a  massive rescue effort to help those trapped inside.

Young not only donated $100,000 to the Red Cross, he’s set up a fundraising page for others to help. The GoFundMe has a goal of $500,000. “All donations will be routed through the Chris Young Foundation to distribute directly to Harvey relief through the Red Cross and other disaster relief organizations,” he says.

Country Singers React to Hurricane Harvey

While Young is the first country singer to directly step up in the relief effort, dozens more have sent thoughts and prayers as the storm slowly moves on. Now downgraded to a tropical storm, Harvey is still expected to dump rain on the area for several days.

Musically Young just announced the title of his sixth studio album. Losing Sleep will drop on Oct. 20 and feature the title track and a song called “Where I Go to Drink.” In announcing the title and release date, Young also shared the album’s cover. His last album I’m Comin’ Over was certified gold and included three No. 1 hits, including a duet with Cassadee Pope and another with Vince Gill.
