[PHOTOS] John Mayer and Dave Chapelle Share the Stage in Montana
Recently, lots of celebrities have been looking to call Montana home. But, some have been here a long time. Some even live here full time, instead of just owning a vacation home. One of those people is the very talented artist, John Mayer.
John moved to Park County in 2012. Since then he has done everything he can to become a cherished part of the community. He helps out in every way he can.
According to US Weekly, John provided some much-needed relief during the peak of the COVID 19 Pandemic
The 42-year-old Grammy winner provided a “generous” donation to the Livingston HealthCare Foundation in order to help medical facilities in the area purchase ventilators for patients in need. Whitney Harries, a spokeswoman for the Livingston HealthCare hospital, told the publication on Wednesday, April 1, that Mayer had previously reached out to see how he could help the hospital during this uncertain time.
Now, in 2022 his community was struck again with uncertainty. The flooding earlier this year devastated much of Park County and surrounding areas. John took it upon himself to organize a benefit for the Montana communities affected. The series of concerts were called Rise for the River and happened recently at the Pine Creek Lodge in Livingston.
According to John Mayer's announcement on Instagram
Announcing Rise For The River, three great-big-very-small-shows in Livingston, MT to support a county greatly impacted by flooding and the resulting closure of the Yellowstone Park entrance that the local economy relies on. I’m blown away by the generosity of my friends @bobweir and @davechappelle and can’t wait to celebrate this awesome community with those who share my love for it.
