Paisley announced the GoFundMe account via a live video on Facebook. The musician performed John Denver’s “Country Roads” acoustically and asked friends and fans to accompany him in donating to the cause.

“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,” Paisley said.

The June 23 flood killed more than 20 people and devastated many small towns. “Three counties have been declared federal disasters and 44 of 55 counties have been declared in a state of emergency.” The money raised will be allocated by West Virginia Flood Relief 2016 – The Brad Paisley Foundation at WESBANCO Trust Department in Wheeling, W. Va.
