Country music superstar Brad Paisley will host a benefit concert to be held on Saturday, May 12 at the Santa Barbara Bowl, in Santa Barbara, CA. The show has been dubbed “The 2nd Responders,” in reference and honor to those who were on the front lines, the first responders, at the recent southern California wildfires and mudslides. Paisley, friends and special guest Ellen DeGeneres will come together to celebrate the resurgence of the Montecito and Santa Barbara area. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the community and service workers through local organizations. The region was devastated but has miraculously began revitalization and the majority of the businesses are back up and running – ready for visitors.

“Kim and I fell in love with Santa Barbara and the Montecito area on our honeymoon. It feels like small town America by the sea,” said Paisley. “With this concert I hope to raise awareness, spirits and money for the region that’s recovering from the devastating mudslides and fires. I hope people come out and actually make it an experience with us and visit some of the local shops, restaurants, bars and coffee shops.”
