Additionally, Shooter Jennings released a new song, “Do You Love Texas?" in honor of Hurricane Harvey victims. The song features vocals from Ray Benson, Jason Boland, Kris Kristofferson, Kacey Musgraves, Whiskey Myers and Randy Rogers. All proceeds from digital sales will be donated to the Rebuild Texas Fund. Other artists, including George Strait, have held benefit shows for hurricane victims.
