Show and List Preview:
On April 27, 2014, several towns in Arkansas were simply devastated by tornadoes, including a strong EF4 tornado that ravaged Vilonia, the town where Kris' wife Katy teaches school. To aid in the rebuilding, Kris and Preston Palmer Studios have arranged a relief concert tonight to help raise needed funds. According to the event page, money raised will go to Samaritan's Purse's efforts in Mayflower/Vilonia and The Ministry Center, who is also working with tornado victims.

Obviously, this is a serious and worthwhile cause, so my focus will not be on the fun stuff like it normally is. That doesn't mean we won't grab media and set list, of course. But the focus is relief. So to that end-Kris' official street team sent out an email to its members with this information (copied/pasted from the email):

If you're in Arkansas, or have family and friends in the area, there are lots of things you can do to help make this event a success:
