Last month’s Nashville Celebrity Softball Challenge, held each year in conjunction with CMA Music Festival, raised over $100,000 for City of Hope’s research, treatment and education for cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The Grand Ole Opry team defeated the After Midnite team. Stepping up to the plate to help the charity were notable Nashvillians and country music celebrities including Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, Josh Turner, Jake Owen and many more.


The 6th Annual Vince Gill and Amy Grant Golf Classic will be held Aug. 3-4 in Aspen, with proceeds benefiting the charity Challenge Aspen. As part of the gala and golf tournament, Gill and Grant will headline an evening of  cocktails, auctions, dinner and a concert, and the following day will join event co-host and golf legend Fred Funk on the links at the Aspen Golf and Tennis Club. Challenge Aspen provides year-round recreational, cultural and competitive experiences for anyone with a disability.

Show Dog Nashville’s Carter’s Chord recently sang the national anthem at the 2009 Jeff Fisher & Friends Charity Softball Game at Greer Stadium to benefit the Nashville Children’s Alliance, Mercy Ministries, Soles4Souls, Catch-A-Dream and several other local charities.


You don’t need a ticket, you just need a boat to see Alan Jackson rock Lake Martin, Alabama on July 25. He will headline SeaRay’s Aquapalooza Signature Event on the lake where he and his family often spend time on their boat. AquaPalooza is a series of on-water celebrations held during the last two weekends in July at more than 100 locations around the world. Each gathering features family activities such as live entertainment, games, giveaways and more. Organizers expect the fourth annual World’s Largest Boating Party will break the record of 12,000 boats and 56,000 attendees set last year.
