AUSTIN, Texas — Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt are the latest celebrities to step up for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. They are among the stars headlining a benefit concert next week to help Texas residents affected by the disaster.

Organizers said the “Harvey Can’t Mess With Texas” concert will be held in Austin on Sept. 22. It will be broadcast live on 11 Tegna stations in the state and on YouTube.

Also scheduled to perform are Lyle Lovett and Leon Bridges. Actors Renee Zellweger and Matthew McConaughey are scheduled to make special appearances at the four-hour show at the Frank Erwin Center.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday afternoon. Prices range from $30 to $199; proceeds will benefit the Rebuild Texas Fund.

Donations will also be collected from phone banks at the television stations.

The benefit comes on the heels of Tuesday night’s “Hand in Hand” broadcast, which featured CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell who was in Houston covering Harvey in its immediate aftermath. She was joined by a variety of celebrities — spanning the entertainment and music industries — like George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Beyoncé and Oprah Winfrey. “Hand in Hand” raised more than $44 million for several charities including United Way of Greater Houston, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children, Direct Relief, Feeding Texas and The Mayor’s Fund for Hurricane Harvey Relief (administered by the Greater Houston Community Fund).

Grammy-award winning artists Bonnie Raitt and Indigo Girls will co-headline a benefit concert for the non-profit indigenous environmental justice organization Honor the Earth on September 1st at Bluestem Amphitheater in Moorhead, Minn.  Emily Saliers and Amy Ray of the folk-rock duo Indigo Girls co-founded the organization with Native author and activist Winona LaDuke in 1993. Raitt and Indigo Girls have a history of joining forces to further Honor the Earth’s mission to create awareness and support for Native environmental issues and to develop needed financial and political resources for the survival of sustainable Native communities. Honor the Earth develops these resources by using music, the arts, the media and Indigenous wisdom to ask people to recognize our joint dependency on the Earth and be a voice for those not heard.

Special guest Annie Humphrey will open the show. The singer/songwriter and visual artist does community outreach to bring awareness about the six pipelines that run through the Leech Lake Reservation in Northern Minnesota where she resides.   Fan presale tickets and special benefit seats (including some that include a post-show reception with the artists) may be purchased beginning Tuesday, April 25, 10 a.m. at www.bonnieraitt.com.
