Country Music Duo Teams with Kentucky CBS News Station WYMT-TV for Thursday Telethon Benefiting Victims of Texas Disaster

Nashville, Tenn. (September 5, 2017) — Country music duo Halfway to Hazard announced today they are hosting a Hurricane Harvey relief telethon later this week. This Thursday, September 7 at 3 PM ET the group will appear live on Kentucky CBS affiliate station WYMT-TV to solicit donations for those affected by the historic flooding in Texas. The telethon will broadcast from the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg, Kentucky. Halfway to Hazard's Chad Warrix and David Tolliver will not only host the event but will also perform their career hit songs, as well as tunes from their most recent album REDemptiOn.

"We just want to do our part and show Houston and the affected areas that Kentucky cares about them," says Warrix.

Tolliver adds, "In these times, it's great to see everyone come together to help out their fellow Americans."

The telethon will also feature live music by members of the Kentucky Opry as well as select performances from other artists from the Bluegrass State. Halfway to Hazard's Warrix and Tolliver are no strangers to giving back. They've raised over $1 million for Kentucky charities alone and continue to be involved in worthy efforts not only in, but outside of the state as well.
