A whole array of country's biggest stars have joined together to feature in Matthew McConaughey’s Texas relief concert.

The online concert, entitled 'We're Texas', is raising money for those affected by the Texas winter storm. The money will be donated to McConaughey’s Just Keep Livin’ Foundation and its Texas Relief Fund.

While Willie Nelson, Parker McCollum and Randy Rogers all featured, it was George Strait’s appearance that was the stand-out. Having retired from touring back in 2014, He returned with a performance of the modern country classic ‘Troubadour’, alongside his Ace in the Hole band.

Kacey Musgraves, who is from Golden, Texas, performed a beautiful rendition of Willie Nelson’s ‘On the Road Again’, her vocals were flawless as she played a stripped down, acoustic rendition. During the concert, McConaughey kept showing clips of the people who had been the most affected by the devastating winter storms, just a few weeks ago.

McConaughey’s “We’re Texas” benefit is available to watch in full, and also featured performances from Don Henley, Gary Clark Jr., Khalid, Kirk Franklin, and more. The show is available to re-watch below.
