Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon was full of warm wishes and kind words for Carly Caramanna and her family at the Jersey Shore Benefit Concert on Tuesday night. Carly’s family home and business were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy and her 54-year-old father suffered a fatal heart attack a few days after the storm hit, adding to the devastation.

The proceeds collected for Carly’s family and the hurricane victims in New Jersey was over $20,000, which included a generous charitable donation from Big Machine Label Group. The proceeds will be split to help both the Caramanna family and the Jersey Shore Relief Fund.

“I was completely blown away by the Nashville community. Their love and support has kept us going through this difficult time,” stated Carly.

The doors opened at 6pm for guests to view the silent auction, watch the recorded messages that many had sent for Carly and her family to show there support, as well as meet Carly and her family. The line stretched from the doors of the Wildhorse down 2nd Avenue to Broadway. One girl near the front told us that she had been waiting there since 11am to get her tickets. Now that is dedication to a cause.

Justin Moore headlined the show following his performance at the Grand Ole Opry with guest appearances by Jake Owen, Thomas Rhett and Randy Houser. Justin was honored to perform for Carly, his publicist and longtime friend. The devastation of Hurrican Sandy hit close to home for Justin, whose manager Pete Hartung, grew up on the Seaside area of the Jersey Shore, which is being called “ground zero” of Sandy.
