While members of the Marshall Tucker Band are more than 6,000 miles away, working hard to entertain American troops stationed in Iraq and Kuwait, the group's tour truck isn't exactly sitting in wait. After the band left for the Middle East this past week, Marshall Tucker Band lead singer and founding member Doug Gray donated the use of the group's tour truck to Spartanburg, SC's Restoration Church. The church is currently utilizing the Marshall Tucker tour vehicle, loading it to the brim with emergency supplies and food and delivering the goods directly to Alabama tornado victims.
Last week, more than 200 deadly tornadoes ripped through the south, killing 297 people throughout Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia. Alabama was hit the hardest, with 210 confirmed deaths.
