The criticism regarding the sitting president's handling of hurricane relief has been loud, impassioned and varied.
Now, it looks like past presidents will be stepping up to lend a helping hand themselves.
According to Dallas News, former president George H.W. Bush will host a hurricane relief concert at Texas A&M through the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library. And not only that, but the other four living presidents will be joining him!
That's right, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama will all be there.
And that's not all.
The show, entitled "Deep From the Heart," will also feature performances from Alabama, Lyle Lovett, the Gatlin Brothers, Robert Earl Keen, Yolanda Adams and more.
Lee Greenwood will emcee the event, and according to the library's CEO, David Jones, "100 cents of every dollar [raised] through tickets sales" will be distributed to "designated hurricane recovery funds."
ABC World News recently posted the press release on Twitter:

"It's important that those affected by these devastating storms know that, even if the path to recovery feels like a road that goes on forever, we're with them for the long haul," said George H.W. Bush.
Ticket prices range from $30 to $600 and will go on sale to the general public on Thursday.
"Deep From the Heart" will be held on October 21.
