[photogallerylink id=1785 align=right] [lastfm link_type=""]Alan Jackson[/lastfm] has done his best in helping the east coast after it was hit by a 5.8 magnitude earthquake on August 23, it won’t help rebuild what was damaged but it is a start and will help those who were affected.

Mineral, Va., was at the epicenter of the quake, the town banded together to prove their loyalty to the singer by gathering the most votes in Jackson’s contest. Now, the small town will be honored with a free concert.  Mineral is home to just 490 people.  Naturally, the town’s residents are excited. Vice Mayor Bernice Wilson-Kube, had this to say: “It’s on people’s minds right up there with the earthquake.” She also said that the town will have to come up with a plan for a venue that will house everyone, given that as many as 3,000 fans are expected. Right now, they’re considering a town park — or even the Louisa County High School football stadium.  Just last week, it was announced that Mineral would not be receiving governmental help to rebuild their town, so the news of the free concert couldn’t come at a better time. Details on the date and time have yet to be announced.  Did you get that last part?  The town of Mineral would not be receiving governmental help to rebuild their town.  What’s up with that?
