On Sunday, Matthew McConaughey and his wife, Camila hosted a star-studded fundraiser for the state of Texas.

The fundraiser, “We’re Texas,” was created to assist residents impacted by the devastating winter storms that hit the state in February. While the Texas is currently in recovery, some residents are still without clean water. So far, McConaughey’s event has raised over a quarter-million dollars and counting, which will be distributed amongst several charitable non-profit organizations.

The actor’s fundraiser featured appearances from many Texan household names such as George Strait, Miranda Lambert, and Chip and Joanna Gaines. Of course, Texan and national treasure Willie Nelson also made an appearance during the program. Nelson performed “Beautiful Texas” while his sister, Bobbie Lee Nelson, accompanied him on the piano.

Nelson’s song “Beautiful Texas” was originally cut for his seventh studio album Texas In My Soul. Nelson initially released the album in 1968 as a way to pay tribute to his home state. 

McConaughey’s fundraiser is still taking donations for the great state of Texas. You learn more on how to donate to the cause here.
