The event is being organized and hosted by Songwriters In Paradise (SIP) founder Patrick Davis in conjunction with iHeartCountry, The BIG 98, and The Bobby Bones Show. SIP is a music festival that has had an eight year relationship with the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas, an area that was badly damaged by the hurricane. SIP has started a GoFundMe Campaign for the islands that has raised more than $380,000, and there will also be an online auction to benefit the area.

Separately from the SIP Hope 4 Hope Town show, Billy Currington will headline his own free benefit concert, as well as open for another, in Key West on Saturday, September 14 at the Sunset Pier. Currington is expected to hit the stage at 7 p.m. at the Key West Theatre for the Key West Cares concert, before heading to his own Bahamas Benefit to perform at 8:30 p.m.

Headed south as south gets to Key West Florida.  After seeing the impact Hurricane Dorian had on the Bahamas ,  I feel we gotta do something.  So I looked online for organizations already in motion, helping out the island of Green Turtle Cay, which I came to know when we shot the video for the song People Are Crazy.  I saw that my friend Paul Menta is heading up fundraising efforts with Key West Cares and putting on a show at the Key West Theatre.  I want to be a part of what they’re  doing so headed down to play a few songs at the theater this Saturday night Sept 14, 7 pm.  If you wanna come down and check out the show or be a part in some way,  look up Key West Cares online for more info.  Also I feel like we can raise even more money at the full band after party at the Sunset Pier starting round sunset on.  If you have something to auction, hit up Paul Menta at Key West Cares.  Paul runs Key West Legal Rum distillery and has just put in the first super sweet auction item.  Most of all, can’t wait to hang and see people gather up for the love of the Bahamas.

“After seeing the impact Hurricane Dorian had on the Bahamas, I felt I had do something,” said the crooner in a press release. “I looked online for organizations already in motion, helping out the island of Green Turtle Cay, which I came to know when we shot the video for ‘People Are Crazy.’ I saw that my friend Paul Menta is heading up fundraising efforts with Key West Cares and putting on a show at the Key West Theatre, and I decided I wanted to be a part of what they’re doing. I will be heading down there to play a few songs at the theater this Saturday night Sept 14, 7 pm. If you would like to come down and check out the show or be a part it, look up Key West Cares online for more info. There will be an additional opportunity for a fundraiser at the full band after party at the Sunset Pier starting around sunset. If you have something to auction, hit up Paul Menta at Key West Cares. Paul runs Key West Legal Rum distillery and has just put in the first super sweet auction item. Most of all, I can’t wait to hang and see people gather together for the love of the Bahamas.”
