Rich called the event an “incredible night!”

Musician and songwriter Ira Dean, who owns a home in Florida, organized the Hertz Arena concert.

“I couldn’t believe the devastation,” Dean told WINK News of the aftermath of Hurricane Ian in September. “I just started calling friends. First person I called was Ted Nugent, and he was like, ‘What do you need? What time do you need me there? I’m there.’ Then I was like, ‘Well, that was easy.’ So I just started calling people.”

Performers Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gavin DeGraw, RaeLynn, and Tracy Lawrence were among those to join Rich and Dean at the concert on Dec. 1.

Hurricane Ian was said to be the most damaging storm to hit Florida since Hurricane Harvey in 2017.
