Nicole Kidman joined her husband Keith Urban at a concert on Sunday to help raise money for victims of Nashville’s recent devastating floods.

Keith performed on stage at the Ryman Auditorium with Sheryl Crow, Brad Paisley and others while Nicole manned the phones with Kellie Pickler, Holly Williams and many more at the show, which raised over $1.7 million.

Co-hosted by James Denton and Kimberly Williams-Paisley, other performers at the show included Dierks Bentley, Sam Bush, Lady Antebellum, Keb’ Mo’, CeCe Winans, Martina McBride and Will Hoge. Kenny Chesney addressed the crowd via video.

And according to Tennessean.com, some of the major donations that came through included: “Comcast gave $50,000; Scripps Network, Big Machine Label Group, Delta and Jack Daniel’s Distillery each donated $100,000; and the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music Lifting Lives donated $250,000 from ticket sales of the ACM Presents: Brooks & Dunn — The Last Rodeo television special (that is set to air 7 p.m. May 23 on CBS).” Brad Paisley donated $100,000 to the cause.
