ZZ Top Donating ‘La Grange’ Download Sales To Hurricane Harvey Relief
Houston-formed blues rockers ZZ Top are donating the sales of their song “La Grange” to help Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Beginning today, the Salvation Army will receive proceeds from iTunes purchases of the track featured on the Live! Greatest Hits From Around The World album the band issued last year.
Guitarist Billy Gibbons issued the following statement regarding the “La Grange” donations:
“La Grange” is a very special song and place to us. The narrative chronicles a “coming of age” circumstance for many Texans and was our breakthrough hit back during the early days of the band. We actually got to perform “La Grange” in La Grange for the first time in their fair city quite recently. “La Grange” emerged as ZZ’s first top 10 chart buster and holds a special place in the band’s history. We’re hoping “La Grange” will once again provide some comfort to those who need it so desperately.
Featuring Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard, the live “La Grange” cut clocks in at nearly six minutes in running time. In addition to the “La Grange” donations, ZZ Top will perform a Hurricane Harvey fundraiser concert at nearby Sugar Land this Sunday, September 10.
