NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jack White and his staff at Third Man Records are lending a hand to Nashville's flood victims.
White told The Associated Press on Friday that profits from Saturday's sales at his downtown record store will go to flood relief.
White, a member of The White Stripes and The Dead Weather and a resident of nearby Franklin, and employees of Third Man will join Hands On Nashville on Monday to aid in the cleanup.
At least 31 people were killed in three states, including 20 in Tennessee, when storms dropped record amounts of rain.
Thousands of volunteers are lending their time including some of Music City's biggest stars. A local telethon hosted by Vince Gill raised more than $1.7 million and another telethon is set for May 16 on the country music cable network GAC.
