Alan Jackson's AJ's Good Time Bar Launches #HonkyTonks4Texas Weekend-Long Drive To Help Flood Victims

Alan Jackson's AJ's Good Time Bar Launches #HonkyTonks4Texas Weekend-Long Drive To Help Flood Victims


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) 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."

For Nashville-area businesses interested in joining the #HonkyTonks4Texas movement, please contact Matt Harville at info@ajsgoodtimebar.com.

About AJ's Good Time Bar:
The four-story entertainment mecca officially opened all four floors in May 2017 and sits proudly near the corner of 4th Avenue and lower Broadway as the only 100% artist-owned bar in the heart of Nashville - a stretch of road commonly called the "Honky Tonk Highway," just like Jackson's 2017 tour. Following the Honky Tonk Highway Tour's sold-out stop at the city's Ascend Amphitheater in May, Jackson and his eight-piece band made a surprise appearance on the first floor's "AJ's Honky Tonk" stage ... and, as sole owner and visionary behind the venue, he's known to make appearances at AJ's during the week and when not on the road. Jackson is also a majority owner in ACME Feed & Seed, located just blocks away at 1st Avenue and Broadway.
