FAYETTEVILLE, AR-- A Fayetteville fundraising concert raised $2,000 for central Arkansas storm victims.

Barret Baber and Backroad Anthem took the stage Wednesday night at George's Majestic Lounge. They tell us it was all part of an effort to give something back to the community.

"Arkansas is such a state that everybody is so connected here, says Backroad Anthem's Craig Strickland. "We have fans down there so this is something we're excited to do."

"It's really special to see that and feel that as an artist, so we know how powerful that can be, so what we wanna do is give back a little bit," says Baber.

All proceeds raised from Wednesday night's event will go toward storm relief efforts.
