LOUISVILLE, KY. (AP) - The country music trio Lady Antebellum will put on a benefit concert for a tornado-wrecked southern Indiana town after holding a prom event for the town’s high school juniors and seniors.

The group says the May 16 events for Henryville High School students will be at the KFC Yum Center in nearby Louisville. The group says all concert proceeds will go to a relief fund for the town that was heavily damaged by the March 2 wave of tornadoes that killed 13 people in Indiana and 24 in Kentucky.

Lady Antebellum announced Henryville as winner of its “Own the Night” prom contest last week after schools from as far away as northern Wisconsin submitted YouTube videos on Henryville’s behalf.

Concert ticket information will be released in the coming weeks.
