Tim McGraw Seeks Help for Louisiana Flood Victims

By Amanda Wicks

Britney Spears isn’t the only Louisianian doing her part to raise money for the flood victims of the the worst natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Yesterday (August 22), Tim McGraw posted a video on Instagram encouraging his followers to donate to many worthwhile organizations dedicated to helping the state recover.

Appearing in a stark black and white video and wearing a ten gallon hat, McGraw spoke about how Louisiana had suffered its second flood this year and was in dire need of help.

In the caption he wrote, “My home State of Louisiana has suffered a great tragedy with all the recent flooding. So many people’s lives have been disrupted and the recovery is just beginning. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected. I’m calling on everyone to pull together and help out with the relief efforts that are underway. There are so many ways to support–from volunteering to donating to the many great organizations such as the Baton Rouge Area Foundation or the Second Harvest Foodbank. The road to recovery will be long but know Louisiana that we will be there for you.”

McGraw was born in Delhi, a little town in the northeastern point of the state. While that area was not affected, over 2,600 people in southern Louisiana remain in shelters after high flood waters impacted over 60,000 homes in that area. Watch McGraw’s video below.
