Five former presidents are expected to headline a hurricane relief concert at Texas A&M in Oct. 

The George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation announced the "Deep from the Heart: The One America Appeal" relief concert that will take place at Reed Arena on Oct. 21 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

All ticket sales and other proceeds from the concert will go to hurricane recovery efforts launched by the five living former presidents. 

Along with the presidents, the concert will feature ALABAMA, the Gatlin Brothers, Lyle Lovett, and Robert Earl Keen among others. Lee Greenwood will emcee. 

“The 43rd President and I, and our distinguished colleagues in this 'One America Appeal,' are very grateful to these wonderful performers — some of them old friends, some of them new — for giving their time and talent to help the urgent cause of hurricane recovery in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean,” said President Bush 41 in a press release. “It’s important that those affected by these devastating storms know that, even if the path to recovery feels like a road that goes on forever, we’re with them for the long haul."

Ticket prices vary from $30 - $600 and can be purchased here

On Thursday, a representative for President George H. W. Bush said the concert sold out within 24 hours.
