An American Idol alum has helped raise nearly $20,000 for a pair of in-need groups right here in East Tennessee.
Scotty McCreery made a stop at the Valerium back in October. His show was part of the first-ever Q93 Mike Hammond Concert for Charity. Rodney Atkins and the Lost Trailers also performed.
On Wednesday, the tally from that concert has come in. Nearly $20,000 was raised.
The money will benefit Bethany Christian Services of Knoxville and the Helen Ross McNabb Center.
