NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Get ready for some country fun all for a great cause this weekend!

Nashville radio host Bobby Bones, of The Bobby Bones Show, will take the stage with his comedy band, The Raging Idiots, as part of a Lowcountry Flood Relief Concert.

The group has teamed up with the American Red Cross to helping support the victims affected in South Carolina.

Having grown up in Arkansas, now living in Nashville, Tennessee, Bones is no stranger to flooding.

"Whenever the flood hit, having been through a lot of floods in my lifetime, I thought what can we do and how quickly can we do it?" Bones said in a Skype interview Thursday.

It turns out The Raging Idiots were able to throw something together pretty quickly. Bones and one of his co-hosts, Eddie, are well known across country radio as some of the guys behind the mics of "The Bobby Bones Show."

After hearing about the disaster here in South Carolina, they felt the need to give back. 

"We threw up a bunch of merchandise and we were able to make $80,000 for the flood relief in Charleston,” Bones said. “Then we wanted to come and do a show there."

The Raging Idiots has played shows all over the U.S., and to date, raised over a million dollars to benefit various charitable causes. On Saturday at 7 p.m., when the duo will hit the stage at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center.

The duo has played with Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line and has toured with Brad Paisley and Toby Keith. In partnership with 103.5 The Weasel/WEZL, country artists Lindsay Ell and Kelleigh Bannen will take part in the benefit concert.

"We're going to come in and do a lot of fun songs, and really just make as much money as possible, and help out with what's going on," Bones said.

Bones said the devastating photos from the Lowcountry and beyond spoke out to him.

"People, normal people, have to go through abnormal things, and do abnormal things in a good way for other people,” Bones said. “So it's not just one story, it's the whole thing. I've been there so we want to help as much as possible."

As for surprise guests, "Well if I told you it wouldn't be a surprise..." Bones said.

Charleston country radio hosts TJ & Ric from 103.5 The Weasel/WEZL will be introducing the acts at Saturday’s concert. 

Tickets are still available through TicketMaster.
