Native Texas singer-songwriters Radney Foster and Bonnie Bishop will make a live recording of their Friday show at the Kessler Theater in Dallas available for sale online immediately after the show, with all proceeds going to a charity assisting Wimberley flood victims.
Both musicians live in Nashville, but Foster is from Del Rio, while Bishop grew up in Houston and lived in Austin. “So many of my musician friends live in Wimberley, and my nephew is an EMT in Blanco County,” Foster said in a press release that identified My Neighbor’s Keeper as the beneficiary of the fundraiser.
“We decided to go with a local charity that could get the needed funds to victims quickly,” said Foster, who himself was a victim of flooding in his Nashville home in 2010. The press release stated that My Neighbor’s Keeper “offers immediate, short-term financial assistance to residents of the Wimberley Valley affected by natural disasters. The charity is run entirely by volunteer board members who serve with no administrative salaries.”
