Jackson Raises Money for Quake-damaged Louisa County

MINERAL, Va. (AP) - Country singer Alan Jackson has raised more than $150,000 to help a Virginia county rebuild schools damaged by last year's earthquake.
 
A benefit concert by Jackson drew 6,000 people to Louisa County on Sunday night. Jackson performed in the parking lot of Louisa County High School, which was closed after the magnitude-5.8 earthquake on Aug. 23, 2011.
 
Mineral, the town at the quake's epicenter, won the show in an online voting contest.
 
Media outlets report that Jackson told the crowd many of those who voted for Mineral in the contest aren't from the town. He said that shows people in America take care of each other.
 
Capitol Records provided about 3,000 free tickets and sold another 3,000.
