CmNhRDqWQAASsGEBrad Paisley announced that he has started a GoFundMe account for the flood victims of his home state of West Virginia. Paisley made the announce live via Facebook by performing “Country Roads” acoustically and then issuing a challenge to his fans and friends to join him in contributing. He made an initial donation of $100,000.

“Now that the waters are receding it’s time to pitch in and help in any way we can. One of the best ways I have found that hopefully will raise the largest amount of money the quickest and get it to the people in need the fastest is through GoFundMe. I have set a goal of $1 million — this is doable and only a small portion of what is needed. Join me as we help West Virginians together,” says Paisley.

The GoFundMe account will be distributed by West Virginia Flood Relief 2016 – The Brad Paisley Foundation at WESBANCO Trust Department in Wheeling, WV

On June 23rd West Virginia experienced tremendous flooding that killed over 20 people and destroyed entire small towns.
